THE ART OF A FULFILLING LIFE
Guests: Denis Carey; James Miller and Linda Taplick; Nan Zimdars
The Fall Season is upon us – a time when five Madison artists will come together to present their individual works at a Fall Art Show, Sunday, September 21, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM in the Atrium at the Madison Marriott West. On this program, three of the artists discuss how their lives have been enhanced by their pursuit of artistic endeavors.
Linda Taplick shares the story of her husband, retired architect Jim Miller, whose colored pencil drawings have taken on a new dimension since a stroke disabled the use of his right hand, arm and speech and how he painstakingly learned to draw again with his non-dominant left hand.
Nan Zimdars, longtime head of her own retirement planning business, always loved art as a child. Hear how over a decade ago, she picked up a brush and started painting again – first in water color and then oil – and what she has learned in the process.
After 44 years as a dentist, Denis Carey recalls how he retired from dentistry and never looked back. Instead he applied his dental skills to fused glass creations which stimulated his creativity and opened the door to a new business venture.
