|North Platte artist displaying in July|
North Platte artist Sue Perez is displaying her work at Meadowlark Gallery in Grant during the month of July.
Perez is a self taught artist, learning through hundreds of paintings and drawing over the past decade. This creative journey began about 10 years ago, after a devastating tornado left her to ponder man’s fleeting time on earth and how her art could leave an impression for future generations.
Currently her work can be seen at the North Platte Art Gallery in Nebraska. A member of the North Platte Art Guild, she has served as president since 2006.
Perez teaches drawing classes, holds workshops and 4-H seminars, and looks forward to expanding her teaching efforts, while exploring new venues to share her art with an expanding audience.
Perez has held showings at the Noyes gallery in Lincoln, Thedford Art Gallery, Comstock Art Gallery and Ptarmigan Arts in Homer, Alaska. Her art is displayed on several on-line sites, which have led to numerous awards and inclusion in several world wide publications, featuring her miniature drawings.
The art of Sue Taylor Perez has found homes in 49 states and 29 different countries.
Perez works in a variety media with her favorites being color pencil, pastels, and acrylic. Animals and still life are preferred subjects, but her varied lifetime experiences are often reflected.
She is working on a series of paintings and color pencil drawings depicting historical themes, the homeless population (invisible society)and a lighthearted series on the imagination of children, “Through the Eyes of a Child.” Look for these in the upcoming year.
Visit Meadowlark Gallery on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-8 p.m. and check the arts council website at perkinscountycreators.com for past shows and a current gallery schedule.
The gallery is operated by the Perkins County Area Arts Council, who meets the second Thursday of each month, 7 p.m. at the gallery. The meetings are open to the public.
