New Local Artist to Display at Barbara Bush Branch Library in April

Mary E. Stallman grew up on the farmlands of SE Texas and developed a love of nature which serves as inspiration for her paintings.  She started with charcoal sketching and drawings, also trying watercolors, pastels and sculpting.  Marriage and motherhood did not allow much time for art instruction, but the desire ran deep.  Once Mary retired her need to paint emerged.  She took instruction and began to paint full time.  Her inspiration comes from the natural of our world, she is a realist with attention to detail and a philosophy of being true to nature in her work.  Come to the Barbara Bush Branch Library at 6817 Cypresswood Drive in April to see her work.

Charles Criner, artist on display in Art Alcove in February

Charles Criner is the artist on display this month in the Art Alcove.  He writes about his work:  "I have often been accused of not drawing and painting enough pretty people and beautiful things. I believe that art in its truest state is not about what is pretty and what will look good with curtains and tables. Although many artist risk their livelihood by not painting such things.  I believe that art should have a voice of it own."  Come to the second floor of the library and  experience his art.
