Jane McFarlen of Wichita will be the first featured guest artist at Gallery 1001 in 2017. An active member of Decorative Artist and the Kansas Wheatheart chapter, McFarlen started painting with landscapes in the style of Dorothy Dent, in 1981. Her baby daughter had a bad accident that year and needed therapy. McFarlen found Sherry Clark to work with the child, who also encouraged Jane to pick up a paintbrush while she was waiting through the therapy sessions. McFarlen was hooked.
