Sylvia Correa McMillan is exhibiting in Room L-129

Sylvia Correa McMillan first discovered the joy of art at eight years old when her grandfather took her to the Art Park in Mexico City. Surrounded by beautiful works of art of all kinds, she knew her heart wanted to paint. To be able to reproduce the beauty of nature is a great passion, she says. We who know Sylvia, for many years, one of our Children’s Assistants and the teacher of Computadoras to our Spanish-speaking library customers, think she does everything with passion and beauty. Come and see her paintings in Room L-129 during the month of March.

Anne Shirley exhibiting in our Meeting Room

This month we are delighted to be exhibiting the watercolors of Anne Shirley, a Texas transplant from Washington, D.C. and Maryland, who has lived most  of her adult life in Texas and Louisiana with sojourns to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Republic of Yemen. An art teacher in Louisiana’s Calcasieu Parish Schools, Mrs. Shirley earned her BS in Art Education at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.Her work has earned honors in watercolor shows in Houston and Beaumont, Texas; Boise, Idaho and locally. 

She is intrigued by nature, flowers in particular, and tries to push herself through experimentation. And by looking for the unusual in such a way as to help the viewer of her art see ordinary things in a different way. She sets up problems for herself involving a strong design and composition to expand her horizons.

She considers watercolor to be a fascinating and demanding medium. Come and enjoy her work through the month of February.

Grace Hessman, Landscape Artist

Throughout February you have the pleasure of viewing the pastel paintings of landscape artist Grace Hessman in our meeting room, Room L-129. She’s a 'plein air' painter, which means she doesn’t paint from reference photos in her cozy air-conditioned home studio. It means she plunks her easel down in the shifting soils of west Texas or beach Florida or the Oregon forest, with boots on to protect herself from cactus spines and driving heat and morning chills, to see, feel, and smell each nuance of the landscape she’s passionate about capturing on paper. When you see her work, I think you’ll catch that spirit. That’s Room L-129; throughout February.
