The monthly meeting of Southwest Montana Arts will be held on Monday, February 25 at 9:30 am in the Community Room with guest speaker Jerolyn Dirks. Dirks earned a degree in fine arts from the University of California at Los Angeles. She is known for images created for PetSmart stores, Iams Corporation and The American Humane Association. In 2008, after 18 years as an illustrator in watercolor, she switched to oils and plein-air painting. The public is welcome to a spirited personal dialogue on the process of painting.
