The North Augusta Artists Guild will have Robert M.O. Oziemife as the guest speaker for the April meeting. He was born and raised in Lagos State, Nigeria. He came to America in October 2008 on a basketball scholarship and attended Mt. Zion Christian Academy for a year, then he transferred to Mt. Vernon Presbyterian School in Atlanta.
There, he received more encouragement with all the necessary materials he needed that helped him realize how blessed and creative he was and took up another profession. His art work is based on landscapes, most are from African settings with evening or night scenes. The NAAG meets the first Tuesday of each month at the North Augusta Community Center at 7p.m..
