Our featured Artists:
Lori Delfosse
On a perpetual quest of infusing vibrant color in her life, Lori Delfosse says ‘YES’ to many intrigues. From traveling, the outdoors and working as an entrepreneurial nurse, she is inspired by the COLORS that present on her vast escapades. Her enchantment with COLOR shows in her work of varied mediums of stained glass, textiles, water color & acrylics.
Lori’s inspirations are based in her insatiable desire to experience life to it’s fullest. Having grown up in the cornfields of the midwest, her childhood imagination and love for books took her on excursions to far off lands. From Istanbul and India to the Islands of Hawaii and The Caribbean, she has yet to travel all her childhood wonders, but is now often seen off-shore sailing on historical classic wood boats. She brings her passion for COLOR and intuitive motion to the canvas to this year’s show COLOR INSPIRED . . .

Lisa Waldheger
Lisa Waldheger discovered her passion for painting several years ago when she hosted a painting party
for her mother and a group of friends. The group was led by Dr. Andy Dowd, an accomplished water-
colorist, and her mother Marion Love!, a free-spirited artist who enjoyed creating treasures in many
mediums. Inspired, Lisa kept painting, moving from water colors to acrylics, and experimenting with
di&erent colors-schemes, patterns, shapes and techniques.
Painting during the fall of 2015 strengthened her bond with her mother, and forged a friendship with Dr.
Dowd, who also worked with her at South County Health. Sadly, neither lived to see the spring. While
Lisa mourned, she also painted, and began to feel that while she was painting she was communing with
her mother. Her beautiful work honors her mother Marion’s spirit and creative spark.
Lisa is a mother of three beautiful children, and lives with them and her three dogs, Delta, Cosmo and Gavin.

X-Factory discusses the topic of change

X Factory: Topic Change

X-Factory Returns Friday, September 15, 7 pm.
Theme: CHANGE: A conversation about changing mindsets; changing times; embracing change; changing lives for the better.

It’s September and change is in the air. Cooler breezes blow. The kids go back to school. College grads don’t go back to school. New adventures beckon. New chapters await our writing.

For many of us, autumn is a catalyst for conversations and reflections about change. What are you ready for harvest? What must fall away? How could we change our mindset – inviting life to explode with new colors?

Let’s talk. On Friday, September 15, we will again create our X Factory magic by exploring the many dimensions of CHANGE. Join this beautiful and intentional circle of women sharing their stories and wisdom, and leave feeling reconnected, uplifted, encouraged, and empowered.

Reserve your seat now through Friday, September 8 and save! Tickets on sale at $25. Will be $35 after Friday, so don’t delay.

We’re really excited to be hosting this X Factory at Red DWG Library, a new co-working lounge located at 413 Central Ave, Pawtucket, RI. The space is located in the historic American Wire building which was built in 1900. The architectural details are absolutely spectacular and we are so grateful to have this beautiful and inspiring space as our venue! Tons of free parking and just a couple minutes off of 95!

In this fun and interactive workshop you’ll:

  1. Discover the eye-opening lie that will lead you down a path of chronic illness, dibiliting disease, and dangerous medications – if you buy into it! Then learn how you can make a few simple changes that will greatly decrease your chances of falling victim to this diminished quality of life

  3. Learn how you can get support and guidance to create a healthy lifestyle that will nourish your body and revitalize your health so you can become the vibrant person you were meant to be and live the extraordinary life you were meant to live

For the first half of the workshop you’ll view a ground breaking documentary that will reveal the shocking truth of what is being hidden from you and your loved ones. It uncovers the devastating impact of some of the most widely consumed foods, and reveals why leading health organizations continue to promote these dangerous foods despite countless medical studies showing their devastating effects on your health and quality of life.

After the movie, you’ll sample some healthy snacks and beverages you can easily incorporate into your diet that will help you increase your energy, boost your metabolism, rev up your immune system, improve your sleep, and reduce food cravings so you can achieve your weight loss goals and maintain your ideal weight for life.

At the end of the workshop, you’ll learn about a great opportunity to join in my brand new Fit & Fabulous Group Program, where if you choose to participate, you’ll receive knowledge, guidance, and support to help insure your success as you create a new healthy lifestyle that will have you feeling Fit & Fabulous in no time at all!

Art Exhibit: Expressions In Color Closing Reception

Join us at the Closing Reception for this art exhibit.

Sheila Newquist

Though Sheila was awarded “most artistic” in her high school class, she went on to become a nurse, and continues to maintain a full time career in the healthcare industry. For many years, while also raising her three daughters, she fell away completely from making art.

In 2012 she resumed painting, inspired by the photography of her father, Lane W. Newquist. Since then her focus has been on watercolors. Past interests had also included pastels and charcoal. Her style is representational, reflecting landscapes, seascapes, forests, boats and occasionally animals and still life.

While having no formal art training, Sheila has benefited from her mentor and friend, Susan Shaw. She has also studied with Ralph Acosta, Cindy Baron, Bob Noreika, and Natalie Pfhansteihl.

Sheila is a Juried Artist Member at Wickford Art Association, an Artist Member at South County Art Association, an Artist Member at The Attleboro Art Museum, and an Artist Member at Rhode Island Watercolor Society. She has also exhibited at Spring Bull Gallery, the Courthouse Center for the Arts, The Hive, and the Gilbert Stuart Museum Bell Gallery.  She is a member of the plein air painting group, Monday’s Palette.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Sheila has lived in Rhode Island most of her life.  She currently resides in North Kingstown, RI.

Artist Statement
My painting process continues to evolve as I explore my artistic passion. I am considering use of color theory, design elements, and artistic license.  The challenges, successes, and failures all push me on a path of development I strive for. Most importantly, while time to paint is always a challenge, when I do paint it is my favorite mindful meditation.  I am also grateful for all the ways my art has connected me to so many wonderful people.

Earline Rae Ferguson

Earline Rae Ferguson is a watercolor artist, PhD scholar/teacher of history, writer, and a lifetime practitioner of yoga and meditation.

The child of a U.S. Army sergeant-major, Rae first learned to love nature’s varied colors and shapes in Bavaria where she grew up. She especially loved the trees that danced in the dark forests that blanketed the mountains surrounding Giessen. Nature’s allure still called her long after her family’s return to the U.S. where she frequently marveled as a young woman that trees could dance even as they tenaciously rooted their claim to life beneath New York and Baltimore sidewalks. In 2000, an offer to join the history faculty at the University of Rhode Island brought her from Central Illinois to South County where once again she feels an almost primal connection with nature and where every day something she sees in the landscape touches and inspires her heart.

Artist Statement
Each spring as soon as the semester ends, I take off for “parts unknown” to recover from the previous school year at URI. In May 2012, I made my way toward what I hoped would be five days of rejuvenation at a yoga retreat center where I had enrolled in a program simply entitled “Holistic Watercolor with Ann Lindsay.” Meditation and painting, I thought. Once on the road, I knew by the way each tree, bush, and cloud embraced my awareness that I was headed westward toward something seminal in my life’s journey. That workshop is where I fell in deep love with the qualities of color moving through water on off-white paper.
