About One of Our Founders

The family of guild founding member Nellie Cozens has created a facebook page Paintings of Nellie Cozens. Our goal is simply to share photos of her paintings with anyone who is interested. The group is currently a closed group, but we would welcome anyone who is interested to join. We know that Nellie sold quite a few paintings in the Longmont area, and we would love to have any owners join the group and display their paintings as well. If guild members know of any of her paintings, or have any suggestions for how we might find them, we welcome contacts either by email or through our facebook page. Thank you,

Connie Cozens Esch
