Joan Game

Joan Game – Mixed Media

Joan returns this year with her Farmers Market filled with “produce, baked goods, woodland animals” and more …all made with felt. In addition, note cards made from her original artwork will be available. Joan creates two and three-dimensional, colorful, joyful, and whimsical work, using a variety of traditional materials like watercolors, and experiments with fabric, paper, wire, and more.


Barb Kirpluk

Barb Kirpluk – Painter

For my fourth year at RAW, I have put down my digital stylus in favor of oils, acrylic, and gouache. Studying the plein air works of James Gurney has renewed my interest in painting with these natural mediums. My subjects include landscapes, still life, wildlife, and birds.
