The Artists by the Lake Club has chosen Georgia Feiste as its March artist of the month.
Ms. Feiste has been painting since 2012, taking classes as a snowbird at the Artists by the Lake and Palo Verde clubs in pastels, acrylics and oils. When she returned to Nebraska each year, she self-taught using a variety of resources and often worked on commissions for friends and family. This year, during the COVID crisis, she has again been taking online classes from an artist in the United Kingdom whose specialty is realism in painting, whether it be portraits, animals or landscapes.
Ms. Feiste has won several awards at the Sun City Annual Juried Art Show and Palo Verde Art Show, and is a juried member of Vanguard Art Group in the West Valley. Now that she has moved to Sun City full-time, she is giving back by serving as president for Artists by the Lake and teaching Beginning Oils at the club.
Her work can be viewed at the Artists by the Lake Club showcase outside the art room at the Lakeview Recreation Center, 10626 W. Thunderbird Road. She also has a Facebook site, “Paintings by Georgia Feiste,” where her work can be viewed. To join Artists by the Lake, stop by the art room. Dues are $10 per year and members must have a current, valid RCSC card.
