Art League honors photographers Drotar, Rumschlag
Drotar's favorite photo of all time shows great blue heron.  He mentioned it "Devoted Family."

For nearly 60 years, Fred Drotar captured the world with his camera.

Drotar, 92, of Newport is a wildlife photographer and was recently named Artist of the Month by the Monroe Art League, an organization he has been a part of for at least 30 years.

Fran Maedel started the club’s Artist of the Month honor years ago.

“I’m trying to resurrect Artist of the Month,” said Sandy Vanisacker of the league. “While searching through our archives and looking for ideas to help the Art League promote local artists, several programs from our past have resurfaced. This is one of them. I hope to encourage our artists to bring in more artwork.”

Drotar is the first in the new round of Artists of the Month. The second is also a mostly self-taught photographer from Newport, Charlie Rumschlag.
