HONEOYE FALLS – Michelle Garlock, an art teacher at Lima Christian School, is the featured artist at the Mendon Public Library, 22 North Main St, in September.
Customers will appreciate its variety of animal art offerings. Falcons, buffaloes, horses and whales are just some of the animals featured in this small exhibit called ‘Creatures Great and Small’.
“I am inspired by the opportunity to look at the beauty of Creation and the privilege of creating a reflection of it,” said Garlock.
Garlock creates in a variety of mediums ranging from charcoal to pen and ink to oils.
“It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you give them a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. It’s almost a magical experience to see lines, strokes and squiggles become a buffalo, a bird or a horse and I want others to have that experience too,” Garlock said. “I am passionate about teaching others that they too can draw. I firmly believe that if you have a passion for learning to draw, then you can draw. You just need a good teacher to show you the techniques .
Garlock even has gem and wire necklaces that she offers for sale during the show. The necklaces, which cost $15 each, are being sold to benefit the Friends of the Mendon Public Library.
