Our Artist in Residence Program, sponsored by our affiliate member Ben Franklin,  continues this month with local artist Jerry Murphy.   The reception will be on August 25th, 4 pm-7 pm and all proceeds go directly to the artists.

Award winning artist Jerry Murphy was born in Ketchikan, Alaska and grew up in western Washington in a small town called Mukilteo. He has always been interested in art having come from quite an artistic family. Growing up, Jerry spent many hours in rainy Washington at the kitchen table going through stacks and stacks of paper doing pencil drawings.  more
