This is an exhibit of friends and family, teaching, learning and making art. Paula Dewell taught art at Cranston East HS and as an art teacher was a good friend with Peter Geisser who taught art at the RI School for the Deaf. Peter's colleague Mika Seeger has taught workshops in ceramics, mural making and has worked with Peter for many years. Mary Geisser is Peter's daughter who now teaches at Bunker Hill Community College and Lesley University. Mary lives at Sandywoods Farm in Tiverton and is also a good friend of Mika's. This circle of friends and family has the common thread of teaching and making art. Contrary to the old adage, this exhibit confirms that Those Who Teach, Do!


Stephanie Parker, Artist, 1947-2011, is remembered in this exhibit at Spring Bull Gallery with several paintings.
