Virtual Artist Talk: Be a Child / Carol Totten

For the first exhibit in the Mabee Library’s rotating art gallery for the 20-21 academic year, Carol Totten will display a series of her original paintings. Carol’s paintings will be displayed during the month of September. The artist talk will consist of a brief talk by the artist, followed by a reception and viewing of the art collection. Refreshments will be provided.

Artist Talk Description: “Jesus said we come to Him like little children. When I approach art with wonder and excitement about all the possibilities, all the colors, all the imaginative topics, then it takes my fear of failure away. I am not schooled in art. I see other artists who have far better techniques, a greater imagination, an ability to paint what they see in their head. I am a copycat artist and get ideas from others...but oh, I have fun!”

Directions: ZOOM link coming soon
