July 29 – August 4, 2013  were the dates for this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, also known as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration”. In attendance among the more than 500,000 attendees this year were WAA members Kristin Hill, Michelle Rouch and Pati O’Neal.  The three artists were involved in very different ways.

For Kristin Hill, it was her 36th year of exhibiting at the show.  She had a booth in Exhibit Hangar A, where she displayed examples of her work in the form of originals and reproductions as well as digital displays of some of her other works. Also at her booth this year as a guest was SR-71 pilot and author Terry Pappas.

Michelle Rouch was hosted this year by Ford to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Henry Ford’s birth. She and her works were on display at the Lincoln Lounge area of Ford’s exhibition tent. While on-site in the exhibit area, visitors were able to watch her work on one of her oil paintings.

Pati O’Neal has been attending EAA’s convention since 1994 and has volunteered in different capacities.  Part of her time this year was spent assisting the Texas Flying Legends Museum honor WWII veterans. She also had prints of her “Tuskegee Tales” for sale at the CAF’s RedTail Project exhibit.
