For over 50 years, members of The Painting Circle have been gathering to paint, share ideas and information, and to celebrate and support each other’s individuality. The group, under the leadership of well known local artist, Mimi Barclay Johnson, was initiated by Pat Holmes at the Wayne Art Center. They now meet weekly to paint at St. Davids Episcopal Church.

Every day is a different palette of color. It’s so exciting and creates in me the passion to pick up my brush. How blessed I feel to be able to enjoy what I do.”
