Art News by Luanne Faulkender
Featured Artist, Irene Abramowitz
Irene Abramowitz was born and raised in Manhattan, KA also known as the “Little Apple”. Having to choose between classes in art or music in high school, she chose art. Her next exposure to painting was while living her dream as a wife to Ben and mother to their three sons and their families.
“When the boys were in school and Ben was in Viet Nam, I enrolled in art classes under a local artist, Leonard Bandel, at the community center in Kansas City and other Army Posts. I’ve never painted at home” she said, “and I never wanted to sell my paintings although I have and will again. I get too attached to them. I enjoy painting
for my family.”
It was here at IRCC where she got serious about painting. Her favorite medium is oil and her home is her art gallery filled with her wonderful works of art.

Whether you photograph birds or just enjoy nature and the sight of various wildlife right in your own back yard, you will love your home here at IRCC.
This is not exactly where we always like to see IRCC wildlife, but this big pig nosed soft shell turtle snuck into the Malatino's garage, and Eileen snapped the picture before he took off to the lake!
