woman Former Algona Lady Exhibits Her Paintings In California ——— Paintings hung on exhibit this spring in the library at Sebastopol, California, attracted much attention, but the fact that the artist reached her 84th birthday on April 15th - and looked 20 years younger was what amazed the most. Mrs. Minnie B. Long, a former longtime and well-known Algona resident, has not only the talent for painting on canvas but her artistic abilities are far more expanded. Born in Chicago, Mrs. Long started sketching and drawing as a girl and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, until her marriage to Chester Long in 1913 at Glen EUyn, m. She and her husband came to Algona where he was associated with the Long Bros. Grocery and Mrs. Long was an active member of the Methodist Church, Woman's Club, Campfire girls and Order of the Eastern star. The Longs had two children, a daughter who is Mrs. Wallace F. Clow and a son, C. H. (Chic) Long, a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel who resides at Cocoa Beach, Fla. Widowed in 1931, Mrs. Long moved to San Francisco in 1944 with her daughter and family. She renewed her activity by enrolling at Lux College of Fine Arts and then working as an occupational therapist during World War II at Letterman Hospital. Since then, she has been busy with one activity after another. She taught classes in ceramics and textile painting in her own shop in Twain Harte from 1949 to 1954, and she then became supervisor of arts and crafts at a children's summer dude ranch in the San Joaquin Valley. She was past 70 when she began to paint in media other than watercolor. She studied at Marin Junior College and took private instruction in San Jose. After "retiring" from her dude ranch position six years ago at the age of 78, Mrs. Long, then living in Lodi, remained active as a member of the Lodi Art Center, exhibiting in various galleries and business establishments. In addition to painting, Mrs. Long fashions character dolls with/Beads of dried apple's: iler \ "Mini-Apps" include Charles Schulz» Peanuts Gang, jimmy Durante, Huck Finn, Popeye, Red Skelton, Charlie Chaplin, Groucho Marx and others. Still another hobby is her "eggshell fantasies", be jeweled creations done on blown eggshells and reminiscent of antique Faberge porcelain eggs. The paintings exhibited by Mrs. Long, an active member of the Art Workshop of Western Sonoma County in Calif., were landscapes, seascapes, portrait and still life done in oil, acrylics and water color, under the signature of M. B. 'Long. zzwmmmmmw w : «l Sandy O'Brien Is Bride Of Ronald White At St. Joe For Vets Picnic Mrs. Julianna Jackson and Mrs. Rosa Harson, Lone Rock, drove to the Veterans Hospital at Knoxville on Monday, taking with them five coolers and a picnic basket loaded with fried chicken, potato salad, homemade bread, assorted fruit salads, pickles, baked beans, fresh fruits and a beautifully decorated cake made and decorated by Mrs. Ann Radig, Lone Rock.
