Sarah Hillman's "Sticks and Stones: A Celebration of Nature"

Sarah Hillman's "Sticks and Stones: A Celebration of Nature"

December 13, 2019

Join us for "Sticks and Stones: A Celebration of Nature," an exhibition by Sarah Hillman.  Sarah works in a variety of mediums, including watercolor, digital painting, ceramic sculpture and ‘rock art’ (which is the fine art of finding rocks on the beach and gluing them onto mat board!) She uses her art to celebrate the beauty of the natural world, teach her three children about life, and tell stories. She paints and creates clay sculptures for the sheer joy of it. Sarah's work will be on display at the Arts Council M-F, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., through December. The reception is open to the public and free of charge. Light refreshments will be served.
