Volunteer finds expression through art show

Martha Pilcher doesn’t volunteer much, but when she does it makes a big difference, according to other Arts Revive members.

Pilcher has been involved with Arts Revive for 2-years, she said, and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

“I love it,” she said. “I enjoy working with it.”

Pilcher only volunteers with AR and her church, she said.

Pilcher was one of the first of 15 board members on Arts Revive.

As a former painter, Pilcher said she felt a closeness to the goal of the organization.

“I haven’t painted in years,” she said.

Still, it doesn’t stop her from expressing her artistic side. She said she’s since taken up landscape gardening with a passion.

“My daughter said I started painting in the yard,” she joked. “It’s just three-dimensional art.”

The biggest draw, is being around the other members of the group.

“I want to,” she said. “I love being a part of it. It’s a great group of people, very positive thinkers. I love that.”

And maybe, Pilcher said, AR might get her back in the painting game.

“Maybe I’ll have something next year,” she said.
