Artist Spotlight: Gretchen Murray Sepik

Acclaimed for her characterizations of memorable historical figures, actress and storyteller, Gretchen Murray Sepik brings history to life. In 2004, she was honored by Young Audiences of Western New York for her work with young people and commitment to learning through the arts. ?I like small groups of children in an intimate setting because this allows me to interact with every single child there. My goal is to awaken children to the joy of learning, the joy of life and the joy of who they are.? As one child so aptly put it, ?someone finally got me to like history!?
