“Garden Party” is the theme of Joanne Ohnemus’ Featured Artist show.  Ohnemus, also known as Bird Abode, has been a member of the Redlands Art Association for more than 25 years, showing her bird houses and garden related art.  Although her medium in the early years was watercolor, acrylic, oil photography, monoprint and collage, her art now uses wood, recycled materials and cast away objects.  Most of the art relates to nature and the great outdoors, but once in a while she’ll take up some abstract fun design.
