In loving Memory of Peg Bothner 1930-2022

We are deeply saddened to share news of the passing of Peg Bothner. An icon of the community, the only thing more beautiful than her paintings was her soul. Peg and her family have been staunch supporters of the arts and especially the Tri-County Arts Council. We are truly grateful for their support and the endless inspiration Peg provided with her boundless spirit.
