On Wednesday, May 16, Watermark volunteer and board member, John Lembi, passed away. John was an essential part of our organization. Our new building is a testament to the vast knowledge and the uncompromising vision he had for the visual arts in our community.

John was an incredibly talented artist and craftsman in his own right. We will miss his knowledge and guidance, his uncanny ability to solve every problem we threw at him, his wry sense of humor and the ironic twinkle in his eye. Our condolences to his wife, Lorie, and his many family and friends.
