Mary Pratt's Girl & Teddy
Experience the acrylic artistry of Mary Pratt as her work is uniquely created from photographs and becomes lifelike now through February 3rd.
Mary's first love for art began in the seventh grade when the "teacher had us draw Christmas scenes on the window. Drawing everyone that came to the house for Wednesday Night boxing, my father's friends would take my little drawings home, which made me proud."
Fast forward to retirement when you look for that forgotten something. "A good friend took me to Pablo Painters, a senior painting group at Pablo Towers, and my art passion grew from there. I learned about blind drawing, proportion, color, and drawing the human body, which made me feel like I was back in Biology class. It is such an honor to display my work for the first time at the Adele Grage Cultural Center.
A special thank you to Mrs Betsy Lewis, who told Adel Grange Community Center about me; Art Instructors, Sara Barber Good, Romey Casaras, Linda Olsen and the late Gene Barber. All wonderful artists in their own right and have that special love for teaching which makes them extra special too."
