Right now, Bloomingdale’s Westfield Middle School is beaming with pride. Their art teacher, Deyanna Matt, is slated to be named Illinois Art Education Association (IAEA) Art Educator of the Year.

In a letter from IAEA Vice President Theresa McGee, it was noted: “The committee was extremely impressed with your contributions to art education through your personal qualities, teaching methods, collaboration with colleagues, and art advocacy.”

On Nov. 7, Matt will receive her much-deserved accolade at the IAEA conference held at the Sheraton Hotel in Lisle.

On behalf of all the Westfield students who you’ve inspired, a hearty congratulations!

Another Bloomingdale artist is being honored as artist-in-residence at Roselle’s Lynfred Winery.

The artwork of Marianne Albers McKoveck’s is on display at the winery through August 31.

McKoveck’s artwork features bold colors and offset perspectives. Lynfred Winery is open daily from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.

A member of the Bloomingdale Artists Association (BAA), McKoveck’s exhibit, Spring Sisters, received Best in Show honors at the 2014 BAA art show.
