ARTISTS & MEMBERS

Coming from generations of artists, June has been involved in the art world since a child. Her artistic breakout came after taking a 20-year break from the art world. In her 40’s she began showing her artwork again. This hiatus gave her a new voice on canvas. June continues to experiment and stretch her skills.
June has been active is creating art clubs since the 1980’s. She is currently President of Artists Association of Central Alabama and established two programs, Open Studio in Dadeville and Open Studio in Alexander City, both a place where artists keep their brushes wet.

Hi fellow artist’s! My name is Janet Dunham Gogan. My mother and brother were artists and would laugh at my pitiful attempts at painting. As a result I didn’t start painting till I was 60 years old. My granddaughter wanted me to go to art classes and I just fell in love with it. At the Octoberfest I meet some members of AACA and won their basket of goodies and as a result I joined the club.
These are a great group of artists of all types and degrees of talent. I enjoy the outings, showing in museums, the demos, and workshops we have. So if you enjoy painting or just doodling, come join in the fun. Keep your brushes wet and God bless you Janet.
Heres a little bit about myself: I love to draw with graphite pencil and my favorite subjects are my grandchildren. I am married with 2 daughters, 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. I have been a part of AACA almost from the start of the club and love getting together to share and learn from other members. I believe that my artistic talent is a blessing from God and should be used for His honor and glory.
I was born in Greenville, Mississippi. Much of my early childhood was spent in the countryside of the Delta. After graduating from The Art Institute of Atlanta I built a career in advertising and design.
I was laid off in 2009 due to the housing crash but relying on my airbrush skills I began painting custom cars for a living. Later I opened a sign & t-shirt shop which was a struggle to get going. But my biggest life challenge was losing my wife of 25 years. In 2014 all my passion for Art died with her death. I simply found no joy in drawing or painting.
Since then, I have been in a slow recovery to regain that spark. In 2017 I remarried to a wonderful woman who is my rock and my inspiration. I’m learning to feel the emotion in Art and explore the colors of a vibrant palette. Like a Phoenix, I will rise from the ashes. Thank you for your support.
I am Rebecca Mitchell and I paint with fabric, button, beads and wire. My current passion is making mixed-media jewelry using glass, wire, beads, thread and found items. I also sew, crochet, knit, draw and embroider. I learned to hand embroider at age 7, hand sew by 9 and machine sew at age 11 on a treadle sewing machine. I enjoy the challenge of making something at little or no cost that is both beautiful and functional. I call my work Designs of the Heart as a part of me is in each piece.
I am originally from Alabama but have lived in several states in my lifetime. I am now retired and live in Alexander City, Alabama. I enjoy collecting antique sewing memorabilia, traveling, and learning new art and crafting techniques.
As a child, I enrolled in art classes with Sarah Carlisle Towery and fell in love with art. After graduating from Benjamin Russell High School in Alexander City, AL, I entered Auburn University with intentions of pursuing a degree in ART.
After a year of art at Auburn University, I changed my art major to Secondary Education. So, I found myself teaching English and Art Appreciation at Dadeville High School for 29 years.
Throughout the years, I have taken oil painting classes at Central Alabama Community College, studied with outstanding artists at "The Sarah Carlisle Towery Art Colony" and participated in many workshops. Artists Association of Central Alabama provides great opportunities to love and appreciate ART.

Hello—thanks for exploring our website and looking at my paintings. I have enjoyed drawing and painting since childhood, but it is only now, after a long business career, that I am able to devote my full time and energy to it. My focus is landscapes—I love the outdoors, especially our National Forests, and landscape painting is the perfect excuse to pack up and disappear in the woods for a few days. My goal is to give your eyes a pleasant place to linger and enjoy. I hope you enjoy them and wish you all the best. Joe Fehrmann.
I love portraying beloved pets! Oils are my first love, but I’ve branched out into charcoals and watercolors. Even after retiring from my “real job” in social work, I only average one portrait a month. I’m thrilled to be fully booked until the middle of 2025.
I would be honored for you to take a look at my work. My website has my contact information if you would like to be on my waiting list.

Jill Floyd Holt
I grew up in a small, rural, south Alabama town, where red dirt roads, filled with plum trees and blackberries growing wild, on the clay banks, were my heritage. I really just like to paint if you want the straight of it… usually subjects that have sentimental meaning to me. Painting is a gift that has been with me for the last 49 years of my life. I learned to paint in oil when I was 14.
Jill lives and paints in her studio in her home in Auburn, Alabama. Mrs. Holt’s training includes a BFA Degree from Auburn University. Jill has studied under many excellent teachers including, Daniel Greene, John Howard Sanden, Roger Dale Brown, Mark Boedges, and Gil Dillenger. Her studies have taken her to Venice, Italy, The Dolomites, California, Santa Fe, NM and many other exciting travels. Mrs. Holt’s work can be purchased through her website.
God has walked with me every step of life. It has been a good one. Through painting I share my personal story through discovery and evolution.
