Kate Meehling

Gaslight Art Colony and the art community have lost a very talented artist, wonderful person, and special friend.Kate Meehling’s love of art began in elementary school from her art teacher Ms. Ethel Hurst. She loved and enjoyed art till the end. Kate was one of the original artists in Marshall who started the Marshall Art League in 1965. They would meet on Tuesdays. She and other members of the Marshall Art League would go to Paris, Illinois and paint with Mildred Stewart. In 1969, she entered the WED Art program at St Mary of the Woods studying painting and art history for a semester. She was awarded countless prizes in the Clark County Extension Town & County art shows. In 1985, she earned credit in Humanities Through the Arts, offered on TV by Lakeland College, also took drawing classes through Lakeland College Extension at the High School.She was elected and served on the Sheldon Swope Art Museum Board of` Trustee from 1980-1993.

Kate, in 2009 was one of the founding board members of Gaslight Art Colony. She served as Vice President and remained on the board as an honorary board member. She always looked forward to Thursdays – it was Paint Day! Kate Meehling had a tremendous influence on the arts. In the community and will be greatly missed by many!
