Mason's Commercial Bank will be showing in March, the weird and wonderful art of Nan Loeffler. Meet and visit during a reception March 12 from 12:00 to 3:00. This exhibit includes mixed media, ceramics, collage and etc. in addition to her art metal and jewelry. Please keep in mind that she taught in middle school and considers a hammer torch a great way to de-stress.
Nan was in first grade when she made her first TV appearance on Children's Theatre, Channel II in Lubbock singing "God Bless America" and is convinced that every TV except her mother's clicked off or to another channel. Some fifty years later she still can't sing but has found her "voice" in her artwork. Be sure to see Art titled "Keep on Singing". Hope you enjoy, laugh, and smile at what she loves to do.
