Artist in Action Series Offers Live Demonstration This Friday

Do you ever wonder what artists do in their studios? How do they make their artwork? Why did they do this instead of that? What is their inspiration? If you answered yes to any of these questions, come to the library this Friday for our Artist in Action Series!

From 6 – 7:30 PM on Friday, October 27, join us and artist Claudia Mirzaali for an evening of art, snacks and conversation. Claudia will be discussing her artwork in terms of influence, process, style and more. Additionally, Claudia will be giving us a behind the scenes look on how she creates her artwork with a live artist demo! Are you unfamiliar with her artwork? Don’t worry. She’ll have finished pieces on exhibit for the duration of the demo!
