Art at the Garden

Current Exhibits

Lucy Thomas | Painting

Heritage Hall

March 1, 2021 – May 7, 2021

Lucy Thomas didn’t start painting until she was 47 years old. It really happened by chance and then quickly became the driving force in her life. Being self-taught, she developed her own unique style that lies somewhere in the realm of representational but with a “kick” of the unexpected. Lucy’s paintings include a variety of still lifes and landscapes with vibrant colors and striking detail. There is no escaping the joy shown in each piece thanks to her brave color choices. Lucy is married with one son and three step sons and as many rescued animals she can sneak in when no one is looking.
