Donzell Milam has lived in Spokane since 1975. He has been an illustrator
for the Boeing Company, a visual merchandiser for the Army and Air Force
Exchange Service, a graphic artist and an Art Director for Spokane Community
College. Milam creates a variety of work and his paintings and drawings
capture a moment of time and the emotions and feelings of his muse.
Kevil L. Farmer, a native to Spokane and alumna of Ferris High School,
began painting and drawing before he can remember even before grade school.
Farmer strives to embrace beauty and victory throughout his work. His work is
often described as intense, yet restful and soulful, yet universal.
Carl Richardson, an Art Instructor at Spokane Falls Community College,
will share his silkscreen paintings. His students find his love and drive for
art as inspiring as his work. Richardson is a graduate of WSU and has lived in
Spokane for nine years.
