Over the course of the last 25+ years, the Buchanan Center for the Arts has served the residents of the Warren County region and beyond, providing creative and diverse artistic experiences. Our friend, Tim Kramer, along with BCA board member, Emily Rollie, created the attached video that shares the story of the impact the BCA has had on our community and its residents. (Click on the link below.) We are grateful to them for putting the video together and hope you will take a few minutes to watch it. Thank you for your continued support of the arts in our community.

Sacrificial Art with Chris Dokolasa
Wednesday, April 13th 10am
After retiring from a 34-year career of teaching art in the Galesburg School District, Chris quickly started plans to build her studio primarily for clay work. Although Chris has left her teaching career behind, occasionally she shares her studio with small classes in ceramics.
As a full time artist, stoneware clay is the main media for both functional and sculptural works. Chris also loves to create two dimensional drawings and paintings using a variety of media. Pen and ink, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, and acrylic paints are some of the media used to create with.
