Club focuses its spotlight on two LWers
The LW Art League will host a Spotlight on the Artist event on Friday, March 25, from 1-3:30 p.m. in Clubhouse 4. Artists Vicky Mayhew and Susan Pierce will share their artwork.
Mayhew took a class in oil painting when her children were young and painted on and off for years. In 2002, she fell in love with watercolors, but lately, she has been painting in acrylics and experimenting with 3D artwork. Mayhew prefers to focus on people, animals, landscapes, florals and seascapes. Her paintings have won several awards at the LW Art League competition; in November 2019, her watercolor painting of a vintage truck loaded with pumpkins won both Best of Show and Popular Vote honors.
Pierce is a product of a long line of artists; her mother was a painter, and her father a photographer. Following an esteemed career in commercial, wall and object art, Pierce now concentrates on alcohol inks and line work, as well as collage. Her influences and inspiration span from flowers to abstract to Picasso.
Anyone with questions regarding the event should call Susie Ralston at (562) 431-4124.
