NATHAN LUCAL

This month we celebrate the art and achievements of Nathan Lucal, artist and advocate for interests of people with developmental disabilities. Nate not only speaks his mind vocally, but he expresses himself with his painting skills. He paints in oils at AOS and at home, most often choosing landscapes or architectural themes. Nate makes the most of every movement possible to create art and a life style that defies limitations. Congratulations Nate for being one of the four AOS artists represented in the VSA 2018 Exhibit and Ohio Tour! Check our Nathan's Artist Gallery page on this website.

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.
