Art at the Garden

Current Exhibits

JoAnn Bugg | Painting

Heritage Hall

May 19, 2021 – July 31, 2021

Inspired by her father’s caricature drawings, JoAnn developed a passion for artistic expression at an early age and has explored many creative pursuits, including graphic design, advertising, interior decoration, and painting. After exploring various artistic mediums, she now paints mainly in oil as a contemporary realist/impressionist. Her subjects include still life, portraiture, landscape, and cityscape. Always seeking to paint about the light and beauty that surrounds us each day, JoAnn is keenly aware of the “creative spirit” in us ALL.
