Betty J. Mulholland is the June Artist at the Stratford Library

And it's a "A Colorful World"
The collection of original acrylic and watercolor paintings by Stratford artist Betty J. Mulholland, will be the June exhibit at the Stratford library.  The exhibit is free and open to the public and one of many art displays offered on an annual basis at the library.
After a 26-year career of teaching elementary school in Fairfield, Mulholland retired in 1996.  In 2002 she and her husband spent their winters in Stuart, Florida and it was here that Mulholland started painting in acrylic.  After several workshops, she became a member of the Art Association of Martin County in Florida.  She is also a member of the Stratford Art Guild and has participated in arts shows at the Shakespeare Festival and Boothe Park.  Two of her paintings have won ribbons at the Bethlehem Fair.  This past season Mulholland took a workshop in mixed media and abstract painting with Lisa Young and will soon experiment with oils, charcoal and watercolor on Yupo paper.
Viewing hours for the "A Colorful World" are Monday-Thursday: 10-8 and Friday-Saturday: 10-5.  The art exhibit will continue through June 30 and is located in the Main Lobby of the Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford, Connecticut.  For more information, call the Public Relations & Programming Office of the Stratford Library at 203.385.4162 or visit:
