Pictured above is Julie Corbin's painting, "Evening at Goose Pond." This piece will be the premiere piece at the Marsh Madness/Goose Pond Dinner and Silent Auction which will take place on Friday, March 6 at 6 p.m. at the Linton Elks.
Julie Corbin is the featured artist for this year's Marsh Madness Art Show.
She comes from a family of artists. Her mother and sister both are talented artists who were a great influence on Julie with the result of her producing her first painting at the young age of nine.
Her and her family live in Linton, Indiana and spend time at the Goose Pond which has served as an inspiration for some of Julie's paintings.
Julie's daughter thought the eagles she painted "lived in a really big mansion!"
The past two years her artwork has been available for bidding at the annual Goose Pond Silent Auction and Dinner.
The painting entitled "Evening Goose Pond" was created especially for the Marsh Madness/Goose Pond Dinner and Silent Auction to be held this Friday, 6 p.m. at the Linton Elks to raise funds for the Goose Pond. Tickets can be purchased for $25 by calling 812 512-2333 for more information.
Be sure to attend and support the Goose Pond at the Friday dinner and auction!
