Sacred Heart School in Floresville will host a “Meet the Artist” reception on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 4-6 p.m., in advance of its seventh annual Wine & Art Festival, set for Feb. 25.

The artists’ reception will take place in the Studio C banquet hall, located at 246 Paloma Drive in Floresville.

Members of the public are invited to attend and meet featured artists, whose work will be available for purchase in the live auction during the Wine & Art Festival. The reception will include refreshments.

Artwork depicted here is representative of the artists’ works and my not be in the inventory at the festival.



Vie Dunn-Harr

Works by Vie Dunn-Harr of San Antonio are organic forms rooted in architectural elements, according to her website, www.viedunn-harr.com. She studied at the Lorenzo de Medici Instituto de Arte in Florence, Italy, and the Toblach-Dobbiaco Academia Italia.

Dunn-Harr’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries, including the Dolphin Galleries in Hawaii, the Centro de Arte Contemporaneo in Saltillo, Mexico, and the Fortezza da Basso in Florence.

She hosted an artists’ workshop in Italy last September, with Angie Banta Brown, and plans another this September, on her own.

“God has blessed me with this talent,” Dunn-Harr said, “and I enjoy bringing opportunities to others through art.”

Fellow artist Monica K. Flores drew her into participating in the Sacred Heart School event.

“I see Monica’s heart for the school and want to contribute to this cause dear to her heart,” Dunn-Harr said.



Monica K. Flores

Floresville native and Sacred Heart School alumnus, Monica K. Flores works in watercolors and, more recently, watercolor on canvas, an unusual undertaking.

Her subjects include landscapes and buildings, “a little of everything really, except portraits,” Flores said.

She enjoys the camaraderie of working with other painters in groups, but also works in solitude.

“I have spent valuable time collaborating with other professional artists in an effort to grow as a painter and not become stagnant in my creative process,” Flores said.

She has exhibited in the La Vernia Historical Association’s Chihuahua Trail Art Show and her paintings can be seen in La Vernia Municipal Development District office.

“I’m a great advocate of Sacred Heart School and believe in the one-on-one tuition it provides,” Flores said. “This [reception and art festival] is great fun. It’s satisfying and gratifying to come together as a community to support this strong, local cause.”



Dana Parish

Dana Parish is a longtime supporter of Sacred Heart School; her son is an alumnus.

An art lover all her life, Parish is pursuing her passion since her youngest son started college. Her favorite media are watercolor, pastels, and oils, and many of her subjects can be found on the South Texas ranch where she lives with her husband and a plethora of animals -- including Longhorn cattle, a potbellied pig, and an African Sulcata tortoise.

Her paintings have been displayed in the Parish Galleries (no relation) in San Antonio. View her work at http://leicalady.etsy.com.



Jack White & Mikki Senkarik

Jack White and Mikki Senkarik, married artists from Floresville, are a dynamic duo.

In 1976, Jack, a sixth-generation Texan, became the Official Texas State Artist. By the end of the millennium, he was a master oil painter. His work includes a number of portraits -- including President Lyndon B. Johnson and Tom Landry -- animal portraits, and works inspired by nature.

Some of his works hang in the Smithsonian Institute.

Jack also has authored a number of books. More about him can be found at www.jackwhiteartist.com.

His wife, Mikki Senkarik, is an artist of stature. Working in oils, Mikki produces stunning images with vibrant colors which draw the viewer into the scene. The artist holds a degree from the University of South Florida and a Master of Science in medical illustration from the Medical College of Georgia.

Under Jack’s tutelage, Mikki became a master painter.

As Cynthia Christensen writes in a forward to Mikki’s Senkarik Signature Collection II, “... her colors are rich, ripe, and evocative of spiritual worlds just beyond view.”
