Tim Vanya is our Artist of the Month . Each month, a wine and cheese reception is held with a brief talk by the artist about their work and inspiration.
Artist reception: May 16th, 5-7pm
T.W. 'Pops' Vanya has been painting since 2000 but that's just recently. His career has not always followed the way of the artist; a Houston Police Officer, as delivery boat crew in the yachting industry, a cabinet maker, an iron worker, a life guard and a few other pursuits along the way lead interestingly enough, to the world of western art. He and his wife Kathy now make their home in the rural community of Somerville in central Texas. Their home is 110 years old and they live close to the cattle, horses, ranches and cowboys he loves to portray.
