DC Artists Guild honors Lynda Todaro

Each month the Decatur County Artists Guild will honor one of their members with an exhibit featured in the Kirbo Gallery of the Firehouse.

The member selected for March is Lynda Todaro, who is well known for her art throughout the region. Lynda came to Bainbridge in 1973 and soon learned of art classes being taught by the late Mary Cox. That is when she resumed pursuing her love of painting, something she had loved as a child. Lynda has also taken art classes at Bainbridge College and joined in various workshops and classes with Florida artist D. Arthur McBride. She has always been very active in promoting the arts in Bainbridge.

Her primary focus is on painting with acrylics and oils and she often uses subjects from nature for inspiration. As the attached photo attests, Lynda says she likes to “paint things that are a little bit quirky that make me laugh.”

Lynda’s home studio has been a subject in one of The Post Searchlight’s Bainbridge Living magazines, and she is a regular exhibitor at the Firehouse Arts Center.

The Kirbo Gallery is open Saturdays 10 am-2 pm. Two local artists (Vicki Bailey & Lisa DaSilva) reside in the gallery Tuesday-Thursday around 10-2pm. They do volunteer their time so those hours are not restricted.

They always put out the open signs when they are in house.
