March 2018 Artist of the Month:
Mary Elizabeth Sharp was selected as Artist of the Month for March, at Buchanan Arts & Crafts. Mary grew up loving art and learned to paint in several mediums while attending Odessa High School. After graduating, she started her career with Continental Airlines, followed by 25 years as a travel agent, which gave her many opportunities to travel the world, gathering artistic images. Also during that time, she and husband, Don, raised their children.
Now, they are retired and living in Tow, TX. Both became members of Buchanan Arts & Crafts.
Don creates artistic gourds and Mary is currently focused on learning to paint flowers in oil on canvas during a class Carla Sanchez teaches every Friday at BAC. Mary's work is on display at 17534 E. SH 29, Wed. - Sat. 10:00-4:00 and Sunday 1:00-5:00.
