Thompson Education Foundation Lu Haskew Endowment for the Arts
"Life is good to me. Being able to go to my studio five days weekly and paint for several hours, living in a supportive community, having family and friends who encourage me–all have contributed to helping me become an artist.
Being fortunate to study with some of the artists I admire has kept me painting from the garden, people and my favorite things. With the support of galleries, teaching and doing demos, how could I do anything else?
My goal is to try to be the best I can be by always being a student, looking for new ideas and stretching my horizons.”
-Lu Haskew February 7, 1921 – November 24, 2009
Paintings by Lu Haskew have been donated by her son, Denny, to be installed throughout the Thompson School District. The paintings were sponsored by community members and organizations. The Carrie Martin painting above was sponsored by Columbine Gallery.
