Ada photographer Karen Ward: You'll find her work featured at Gallery for the Arts

This is the first in a series on Ada artists and artisans showing original works for sale at Gallery for the Arts, 115 S. Main St., Ada.

Featured artist Karen Ward, photographer

Ward, a 25-year Ada resident, is a photographer. Several of her photographs are available at the gallery. These include cards, framed photos and 8-by-10 inch unframed photos.

She describes her photography this way:

“I’d photograph more people if I could capture their innocence and not their posed portrait. But, to do so would be sort of sneaky and that isn’t very acceptable this day and age.

Here's the first report of the year from Hardin County Hootenannies

The first meeting of the Hardin Co Hootenannies was held at Faith Holbrook's farm. She had five new baby goats to let the members enjoy. 

The members guessed on which doe would deliver her kids next.  Winners were Riley Fleece -first; Seth Davis and Faith - second.  Parents, visitors, and advisors that won were: Billie Mizek and Jason Fleece - first;  Ray Davis, Grant and Carter Mizek - second.

President Isaac Davis opened the meeting and asked Sean Hurley to lead the pledge to the American Flag and Seth Davis to lead in the 4-H pledge.  We welcomed Elisha Lowery to our club.
