Artisans @ the Plaza: Pastels with Mary Liz Ingram
This month our Artisans on the Plaza series picks back up with Mary Liz Ingram www.MaryLizIngramArt.com.
Join us while this local artist shows off some of the techniques she uses to bring life to her subjects. While her works favor inspiring landscapes, animal and people, she also accepts portrait commissions in either pastels or graphite.
She has also been providing art lessons to adult and children for over 5 years. She currently teaches pastels at Forstall Art Center in Homewood on Wednesday afternoons.
Mary Liz, a self-taught artist, has made a name for herself in the art community. She is a member of many local and national art organizations, including the Art Associations of Birmingham, Mountain Brook and Shelby County, the Alabama Pastel Society and the Pastel Society of America. She has been honored with a number of awards, including two "Best in Show" and one "Best in Drawing". You may have seen her at one of the many art shows in the area, such as the Moss Rock Festival or the Energen Art Competition.
The Artisans on the Plaza series is funded by the Friends of the Hoover Public Library.
Please join us at the Plaza on Sunday April 17th at 2:30 p.m.-AD
