TERRY WALKDEN has found art making to be a great pleasure and participates in both AOS Painting and Ceramic studios. He pays close attention to detail in all that he creates. Terry’s curiosity has led him to some unique experiments this year. In painting studio he made a composition of fabric applique by drawing with colored pencils, then hand-stitching to complete his design. In ceramic studio he carved a bas-relief plaque with a bird. Unfortunately, the large tile cracked in the firing, but with a supportive wooden mount the finished art is even more exceptional. Terry is a hard worker and often assists in AOS tile production.

TONY RINGHOLZ

If you haven’t visited Tony’s page in our Artist Gallery, you have missed some beautiful oil paintings that he has made from photos taken on his travels. As we feature this talented artist we share his passion for another subject – Cedar Point. Tony can relate trivia past and present of this popular theme park. He visits Cedar Point weekly through the summer season and loves to paint images that represent the thrill of the famous roller coasters he rides. Tony balances a busy schedule between work, gardening, sports, travel and riding coasters but finds time to paint with his friends at Artists’ Open Studio.
