The watercolor paintings of Jean Smith are now on display at the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
Jean is a retired chemistry professor and has lived in Pagosa since 2002. She enjoys painting people and places where she travels. These paintings are primarily from visits to China and Pakistan. Some were painted on site and others from photos taken by her husband, David, and other traveling companions.
David and Jean will be traveling again to Pakistan, taking books to schools in rural areas, including Pagosa’s sister city, Gurez. They have room for donations of children’s books, or simple novels (no sex, religion, politics please). “Little House on the Prairie” was mentioned, as were books with pictures. Please call the Smiths at 264-6647 before Feb. 22 if you would like to donate some books.
The UU has been displaying works of artists in various media. These beautiful works help inspire an appreciation of the web of all life. You are welcome at services held on Sundays at 10:30 a.m There is child care and activities for youth at the same time. The Fellowship is at Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza, just north of the fire station.
