Meet Carly Johnson

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

Carly Johnson graduated with my son, Timmothy, last week from Minot State University. Both graduated with Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees. At this time Carly is focused on T-shirts. I was empressed with her work as few students these days show their dedication to faith openly on a public university campus. Carly is not from an "off the wall" faith, she is a practicing Catholic girl.

Yesterday we had an open house at the Titus & Philemon Art Gallery and I invited Carly to set up a display. It was a good time for all involved. Here are some pictures.

Carly can help you design a T for work or fun.

I also enlisted the help of another artist, Natalie, who works across the hallway from me. Natalie is a super interesting girl who is retired Air Force and is very involved working on props for a horror type of traveling show. She rarely travels with the show but loves to be involved and loves to dress the part. Yesterday, however she dressed business casual for our open house.

Even though we could have had a busier open house a good time was had by all.

Thank you Nina Hollander, Broker , my Love. Had I had the space at the gallery I would have invited more of his classmates but Carly really stuck out for me in this time where some University students (and even more paid protesters) are attaching Israel.

Bob "RealMan" Timm the less said about those protesters, the better. Sadly, I have degrees from three of the worst universities in this regard--Harvard, George Washington, and Fordham (and my brother from Columbia and NYU). I keep telling my husband I should shred all the diplomas on my wall.

When you attended those universities they were focused on quality education. Regretfully today they are focused on Socialism Nina Hollander, Broker with little regard to the truth much less quality education.

Glad you were able to showcase the art of these young people. The wonderful thing about America is that every one gets to express themselves. As long as we all remain open, willing to listen to each others viewpoints we can have a strong democracy. When we begin only wanting to hear what we agree with then we open the door for dictatorships and a loss of democracy. Young people are often the ones brave enough to challenge the status quo.

It was my pleasure to tell others about these artists Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 . The only problem with youth speaking their mind is that it is often without wisdom and experience. To many educators are viewing our children as minds to be molded into what they want... not to mention many other out side influences with agendas.

It is kind of a strange picture as it matches Natalie's dress and with her arm around the back it made me do a double take Endre Barath, Jr. I can't wait to get rid of the thing. I have two weeks left before I can remove it and start working more on my range of motion.

Now a days many artist do well right out of college because of our demand for graphics as well as animated movies and games Leanne Smith but there still is that group that falls into the "starving artist" group. I want to help those artist get on their feet.
