The s.m.ART Festival is held annually in St. Maries during the third weekend of July, a busy weekend in St. Maries, so volunteers are spread thin. Please join us to make this year's festival a great success. To contact us call: Linda Schardine at 245-3655.

Carrol Warner - Artist

My family moved to the St. Maries area from Minnesota in 1999. I am a member of the St. Maries Senior Center Art Group, the Palouse Divide Creative Group, the St. Maries Art Gallery, and the St. Maries Council of the Arts.

I hope my paintings reflect my deep love of animals, nature and the Great Outdoors, giving you a glimpse of the beauty and wonder that I enjoy

Life is Art

Linda Schardine

Life is a canvas, a work of art
We paint our own picture, it comes from the heart
As seasons grow, all the colors change
The textures and shades of our life rearrange
There's no printed page, on which to refer
We just let it happen as it will occur
Some paint with numbers
Some paint with zest
Some paint with fingers & some just rest
There's no easy answer to this drumbeat we hear
We paint our own picture, it's so very clear
