October Art Gallery
The Centerville Arts Commission is pleased to announce Lucy McAdams as the October feature in the Art Gallery at the Centerville Police Department, 155 West Spring Valley Road. The exhibit may be viewed 24 hours a day.
The artist will hold a reception on Saturday, October 5 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Lucy McAdams may be legally blind, but her ability to see the bright spots in life is inspiring. Lucy began painting in oils and opened a folk art painting business in the late 70s until she went to work full time. Then Lucy met Olive Boyd, who invited her to paint with a weekly group at the Hotel Gallery in Tipp City. It was in this group that Lucy was introduced to watercolors. Following her husband’s death and the decline of her vision, she has reconstructed her life. With her enhanced vision and magnifying device, she continues to paint and share her painting talents and positive outlook on life. Using the name “Lucy Belle Limited,” she also designs and paints greeting cards on sale at We Care Arts at Town and Country and other local shops.
The Centerville Arts Commission was created by Centerville City Council to involve citizens in the visual and performing arts. For more information, please call 937- 433-7151.
