CRAFTSBURY COMMON: Artist talk, by colored pencil painter Corrina Thurston

Corrina Thurston is hosting an artist talk on Friday October 5, 2012 at the Art House on the Common in Craftsbury Common, VT. The talk starts at 7pm, but feel free to come early and view the solo exhibit she has on display at the Art House, which will be up through the month of October.

Corrina Thurston started drawing in 2010 after she was diagnosed with a chronic illness, from which she still suffers. Her work has already been in many galleries, cafes, and was part of a display in Times Square. This talk is a rare opportunity to meet this unique artist and hear how her illness transformed her life and changed her path from one of science, to one of art. She’ll describe how she discovered colored pencil to be the optimum medium for her and what it takes to create colored pencil drawings as rich and vibrant as paintings. She will also let you have a look at her very first work, and at the piece she is currently in the process of drawing. She would love to answer your questions and meet you, so stop by the Art House on the Common to say hi! 
Prints, greeting cards, necklaces, and keychains of her work will also be available at the talk.
