ocatillo celebration rs"Ocotillo Celebration" by Sandy Feutz of FeVa FotosFeatured Artists of the Grant County Art Guild this weekend at the historic Hearst Church Gallery in Pinos Altos, just up Highway 15 from Silver City are: FeVa Fotos (Friday-Saturday), and S. Ann Nace (Sunday).

Sandy Feutz is the "Fe" part of FeVa Fotos, a photography team that she shares with husband and life partner Tom Vaughan. Sandy has been a photo hobbyist since childhood and after a career in banking and then in broadcasting returned to her love of photography in retirement. "Share the Joy" is the motto of FeVa Fotos and it is her greatest joy to capture a moment in time that brings enjoyment to others. Sandy has been published locally and nationally and won blue ribbons for her photography in competition. Besides the Pinos Altos Gallery, her work may currently be seen at Mariah's Copper Quail Gallery as well as decorating the walls of Silver City businesses.

Tom Vaughan is the "Va" in FeVa Fotos, doing photography with his wife, Sandy Feutz. Their motto is "Share the Joy" because each photograph represents a special moment in their lives. Thousands of images later, each one still brings back the vicarious memory of that moment, with joy! After 30 years with the Department of the Interior and seven as a weekly newspaper editor, Tom loves the relaxed, friendly (and sometimes zany) Silver City scene.

Hop on Highway 15 North to Pinos Altos this weekend to meet the artists from 10:00 - 4:00 Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and view a unique historic church built in 1898.
