CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, June 30, 2016 Ja By GRACE POHL S taft Intern The Mason Jar is sup- porting local artists and the "Save Our Station" campaign with a silent auction of a painting done by Cheney artist, Judy McKeehan. McKeehan was an art teacher in the Medical Lake School District for many years. She has a bachelor's degree in art education and attended both Indiana and Tem- ple universities. She also received her master's degree at Eastern Wash- ington University. Her artwork is scat- tered around Cheney, including windows at the downtown Cheney Museum. McKeehan usually does artwork of landscapes, flowers, plants and kids. But she specifically did a paint- ing on a building that resembles the depot for Bonnie Eccles, who is a member of the Cheney Depot Society. The type of painting that is hung up at the Mason Jar was a first for her, but it still did not take her too long with working on it steadily. Photo by Grace Pohl Judy McKeehan and Mason Jar owner Douglas LaBar stand in front of McKeehan's artwork that is a part of the silent auction benefitting the Cheney Depot Society. The painting will be on display at the Mason Jar for about a month. A minimum bid will be set and anybody can make an offer on the painting. The Cheney Depot Society has a program also supporting them 'that will match any money that is made from the silent auctions to double their funds. The Mason Jar vol- unteered to have the Cheney Depot Society have their silent auc- tion at their facility to showcase local artist's work to other residents in Chenev. There will be a new painting hung up every month if there continues to be artists who donate their work to help the cause. "We hope Judy is going to inspire other local artists to donate artwork and continue this as long as we can with local artists," Ec- cles said.
