Lunch and Learn Series with Deseret Book Artists and Authors

Every Friday, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Downtown Deseret Book Store, SLC, Utah

Mar. 22: Mary Summerhays

Mary studied art at BYU and later apprenticed with J. Kirk Richards. Her watercolors often depict an Edenic garden, but are often infused with personality traits of her loved ones. But their spectrum is broad enough to include the Lord’s generosity to his children. She has received awards from Museums and competitions, and illustrated for documentaries on BYUTV, but she says, "nowhere is my art more meaningful than hanging in our home." Come hear her insights on art and religion at her lecture this month.

She is most well known for her oil paintings of tulips. Each year, she visits the Thanksgiving point tulip gardens to receive inspiration for her artwork.
