It’s that time of year when we select a cause that resonates with us and help make a difference through our annual event, Shine for a Cause. It is our opportunity to support women throughout the month of March, in honor of International Women’s Day. This event is your chance to support local organizations that encourage the growth and strength of women. It truly is one of our favorite events of the year. We love getting to know the organization from the inside out. We try our best to meet staff and volunteers and one of us will visit the organization and connect with those who benefit from the cause. This year, we became acquainted with Fairy Goodmothers, dedicated to promoting confidence and self-esteem in Central Ohio high school girls. We are so excited to share their story and truly make a difference.
As the weather changes and the snow falls it seemed only appropriate to adorn our showroom walls with the intricate and cozy quilts of Deborah Melton Anderson. It’s been our plan to eventually add textiles to our Art at Argo’s exhibition and it is with great pleasure that we found Deborah and her gorgeous quilt-making. We love her approach of traditional styles and hand stitching integrated with modern machine stitching. It is this method combined with Deborah’s imaginative way of creating perfectly appointed patterns that really sets her quilt work apart.
About the Artist
Deborah has come a long way from her days in her small hometown of Columbia, Missouri. It was there where she learned to sew at an early age and made much of her dolls’ clothing. She stayed in Columbia and attended University of Missouri. Later when her father, a college educator, accepted a position at a university in New York, it took little convincing for Deborah to decide to follow her family. It was the perfect opportunity for Deborah to spread her wings and experience a new type of lifestyle in the big city. She was accepted to Barnard College in Manhattan and found the experience truly opened her eyes in new way. The city definitely exposed Deborah to new ideas through museums and lifestyles. Although, art was not her major in college, she later received her Masters of Art in Teaching at Harvard University. It was there where she would meet her husband-to-be. In 1960 their paths brought them to Columbus, Ohio. After all, her husband was originally from the state.
As sewing had always been a part of Deborah’s life, it came quite naturally to incorporate her teaching skills with her hobby. She taught quilting techniques at Quilt Surface Design Symposium (QSDS). She was also a member of the Art Quilt Network for many years and it was there that she really began to share ideas with other members in the group which helped hone her skills, techniques and ideas. Deborah was also a member of The Liturgical Art Guild of Ohio. This resource for many congregations was “the place” for them to locate artists to create religious pieces for their churches. In fact, this is where Deborah began much of her commissioned work for churches and Jewish temples. A few of many items she has created are Torah covers and wedding chuppahs. Today, this is still a favorite for Deborah. She mainly only accepts commissions from churches and then focuses on selling the quilts she continues to make for her own enjoyment.Continue Reading

With October being breast cancer awareness month, we were overjoyed to have the talented local artist and cancer survivor, Abby Feinknopf, join us this quarter for Art at Argo’s. I was uplifted the first time I was introduced to her work. Abby, a survivor of breast cancer, turned to painting just after she was diagnosed. The act of making art every day and the power of bold, vibrant colors is what helped her through it. She now strives to encourage and empower others with her work. Her exhibit at Argo & Lehne is as cheerful and bright as her personality and positive outlook.
We introduce you to her Art at Argo’s Exhibit: “The Power of Color” July 29 – Oct 25. In addition, we will have an Art Opening on Thursday, August 15th from 5-7 pm. You will have an opportunity to meet Abby in person to discuss her work and her encouraging story of healing through art.Continue Reading
