The Oak Hills resident will be one of five artists featured during this year’s annual “Evening with the Artists” event, hosted by the Redlands Community Hospital Foundation from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 22.

Each year I endeavor to illuminate more on the topic of St. Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland and the celebrations that surround the (purported) anniversary of his death.
