Exhibit May 20-June 29, 2018
Reception May 20 from 4-6 p.m.
An exhibit of paintings, drawings, and art journals by renowned artist Carol Light will be on view in the Georgetown Public Library May 20-June 29. The exhibit will be curated by Nick Ramos.
Carol Light’s contributions to arts and culture in Georgetown were recognized Nov. 8, 2016 in a proclamation at a City Council meeting that acknowledged her career and lifetime of service to the arts.
Mayor Dale Ross remarked on Light’s contribution as an artist, saying, “Carol Light is a very talented artist and a wonderful representative for Georgetown’s strong arts community. She has helped to build the art community here over the decades through her teaching and encouragement of other artists, and she has enriched life in Georgetown by sharing the inspiring body of work she has created in her 45+ years in Georgetown as a professional artist. She is a person who inspires creativity and joy through the arts.”
In 2015, Ms. Light was selected as one of just a handful of local artists commissioned to create artwork to be exhibited in the Sheraton Georgetown Hotel and Conference Center, which opened in July. Light collaborated with Sue Bishop Spahn on a 14-foot-long painting called “Grazing the Fault” that hangs now behind the reception desk in the upscale hotel. (Page B1 of the July 31, 2016 Williamson County Sun included a profile of Ms. Light and a picture of “Grazing the Fault.”)
Carol Light’s art has been exhibited internationally, and has won awards in a number of juried shows. Her work was carried by Spicewood Gallery and Design Studio in Austin, and by Hill Design + Gallery in Georgetown. She works primarily in watercolor and mixed media.
