New Art Exhibit featuring Regina Lee Parkinson

Beginning May 5th at 6pm, Friendswood Public Library’s featured artist will be Regina Lee Parkinson.  This art exhibit will run through the end of June in the Friendswood Public Library Activity Room.  Come meet the artist during an Opening Reception on Monday, May 5th from 6 – 8pm.  

Regina Lee Parkinson creates unique art that springs straight from her imagination.  The natural world and current events also inspire her work.  Bold color, texture and high contrast elements are common, but ethereal, dream-like landscapes also appear.  She works mostly in acrylic, but loves nothing more than experimenting with new materials and techniques.  Found objects, as well as original photographs and poems sometimes enter the mix.

Her work is in more than 20 states across the U.S. and has found its way to several international locations such as Hong Kong, Canada, and Australia. She’s received awards for both painting and mixed media work in Houston area juried competitions.
