Williamson County Parks and Recreation invites the public to attend an Artist Reception for Shari Lacy on Sunday, Jan. 26 from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Williamson County Enrichment Center, 110 Everbright Ave, in Franklin.

The reception is being held in conjunction with a Celebration of the Arts, an opportunity to meet WCPR art instructors and see their work and upcoming class schedule. A few of the art instructors at the event will be: Len Smith, cartooning; Amanda Harrison, watercolors; Suzanne Beaumar, mixed media; Kim Vair, bead loom weaving; and Tara Allen, glass painting.

Exhibiting artist Shari Lacy is described as a forever dreamer with big art dreams. With a lifelong desire to bring joy through creating, her hope has always been that her art would be something one can see, feel, touch, and experience, bringing people enjoyment and hope.

Her home studio/creative sanctuary is in Franklin, TN. A graduate of Miami University/Oxford, Ohio’s Fine Arts program, Shari is a life-long creative yet primarily a self-taught painter. Inspired by what’s around her, she experiments with natural tones, colors, sketches, and textures.

Her work has appeared on HGTV, THE DIY Network, Nashville Flipped, in Nashville Lifestyles AT HOME Magazine, The Tennessean, Southern Exposure Magazine and more. She is a licensed artist with Kirkland’s Home Stores and Hobby Lobby nationally, as well as exhibiting her art in galleries and shops throughout the Southeastern US. The Enrichment Center exhibit of Ms. Lacy’s work will be on display through Feb.26.
