In the James Bond movie, “Spectre,” Q responds to one of Bond’s outlandish requests with “I … have a mortgage, and two cats to feed.” That line is one of the few real-life statements in the spy series. Sometimes paying the bills gets in the way of hopes and dreams. When Karen Maddox said that “art was always [her] first love,” she is also explaining she had to make a living. Her secretarial career financed her day-to-day life, and now, years later, she’s in college working towards an art degree. Her exhibition, “Journey,” is her illustrated life-story. A reception is Sunday, June 19 from 2-4 p.m. Maddox’s art sales will be donated to Wayside Christian Mission.
