Art Exhibit – Dee Brua

The Friends of the Paul Smith Library of Southern York County (formerly known as the Southern York County Library) announces the third of six Artist Exhibits of the 2007-08 program year.

Works by local artist Dee Brua will be displayed at the Library through February 9, 2008. Commissions from the sale of art work will benefit the Library. The event is free and open to the public during regular library hours.

Drawn to watercolors all her life, Dee Brua imagined she would have lots of time to devote to learning to paint after retirement. However, when she was laid off after 25 years, a friend coaxed her into taking watercolor classes while she looked for another job. Hooked after the first class with Pat Thorn in 1999, she has continued her studies to learn new techniques and stay connected to other artists. She found another job, but couldn’t stop painting.
In 2007, her work Red Morning, received an Honorable Mention at the York Art Association’s Fall Member Show. Dee Brua lives in New Freedom with her husband, and works in Timonium.

All sales from the Art Exhibit will be available for pick-up on Saturday, February 9, 2008, and gallery commissions will benefit the Paul Smith Library.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Southern York County Library.
