The Collierville Burch Library is pleased to welcome back Mary DeBenedictis as our featured artist for the month of January. Mary’s love for painting was renewed several years ago after almost twenty years raising her five children and working. Mary has studied with such notables as Lynda Tate, Frank Shear, Peggy Pipkin and Fred Rawlinson. She began to work in abstract after seeing some of the current work of a talented friend, Little Rock artist Tonya McNair.
Her work reflects an interest in the expressive use of color against color. She has found the joy of combining color and pattern for a finished piece that is as exciting each and every time you look at it as it was the first day it was completed. Mary's art will be on display throughout the month of January at the Library.
