Elizabeth Stephenson and Jackie Chapman are the featured artists for the month of August at the Dog River Library, and their exhibition of original art is now on display in the Library’s foyer and Community Room. The exhibit is open to the Public with free admission at any time the Dog River Library is open.
Stephenson is an artist who dreams of her next vacation on the beach. Her watercolors incorporate sprinkles of sand she collects from her favorite beaches. While living in San Diego for 11 years, she grew attached to hearing sea gulls and ocean waves and smelling the ocean air. A lover of four-legged friends, she is donating 10 percent of any sales from this exhibit to the Douglas County Humane Society.
Chapman has had a lifetime love of pottery. Each piece has its beginnings in a 25-pound bag of stoneware clay is hand-built or hand-thrown and then decorated with flowers, leaves, birds, frogs, turtles and glazes. Her inspiration comes from nature, whimsy and her subconscious is always looking for a way to translate the things she sees into pottery.The art will be on exhibit at the Dog River Library through August 31st. The Dog River Library is located at 6100 Georgia Highway 5.
