The mother-daughter team of Lasha and Jessica Dennis, as well as retired chemist Mike Lewis, wrapped up week one of the Stars of Texas art demonstrations Friday at the Depot Civic and Cultural Center.
The demonstrations resume Monday for the second and final week as part of the 22nd annual Stars of Texas Juried Art Exhibit. Demonstrations will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Her daughter Jessica, who is pursuing a nursing degree at Angelo State University, put on a special effects makeup demonstration that included giving schoolchildren a closeup look at “wounds” on one of her arms.
