Margie Surber's painting will be on display at the Sidney Public Library throughout the month of May.

Margie Surber, of Sidney was selected the Cheyenne County Art Guild's "Artist of the Month" for May.

While Surber has had no formal art education, she has taken various workshops over the years from Jan Pippit, Paul Adkinson, Patsy Smith and Judy McElroy to name a few.

"I enjoy playing with colors, which is from my years as a florist," said Surber. "A lot of art principles are used such as line, design and color."

Many of her techniques come from experimentation with various mediums such as water color, pastels, oil and acrylics. While she uses different mediums her favorite is pastels.
