Wildlife Artist, Laura Mark-Finberg, to display at QVL

The next art show in the C. X. Carlson Gallery at the Quarryville Library will open with a reception for the artist on Saturday, April 1 from 1:00 until 3:00 PM.  The artist for this show is Laura Mark-Finberg, a noted wildlife painter.  Laura’s wildlife paintings have been described as “windows unto the soul” of the animals that she paints.  She does amazing things with the acrylic paints she uses, giving them a depth more common in oil painting.  Refreshments will be served and all are invited to meet the artist.  Welcome to the wilderness!

Please check out Laura’s other artwork at her website
