Just how long has Doris Myers been painting? Here's how she put it to the crowd of former students and admirers at the opening of her “Retrospective: 1930 to Present”:
“My first oil painting I did in my freshman year in 1935," Myers says. "Oh, do your math! It was a long time ago.”
At 93, Myers is one of Indiana's oldest working artists. She was born in November of 1921, just a year after women got the right to vote. She knew at a young age that she wanted to be an artist.
