Muril Wilson exhibition in Room L 129

Muril Wilson is an award winning artist and former President of the Tomball Art League. She’s been painting ever since, as a young adult, the Teton Mountains took her breath away. Born in Bellmead, a suburb of Waco, her travels back and forth to visit her folks take her through the little town of Calvert where she’s in love with their historic buildings. To date she’s painted twenty-two of them, many of them bought by the building owners. This month she is displaying some of those Calvert paintings as well as other Texas scenes and events. See them in Room L 129.
