Herts Visual Arts brings artist Mitzie Green to the stage!  On Wednesday 23rd November, in Room A161 of the Lindop Building at The University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield - doors open at 7.30pm.

Mitzie Green tells her story ‘From Rust to Riches’, this is the story of Mitzie’s experiences as an artist. She began her artistic career as a potter, before developing a love for textiles and gaining a diploma in stitched textiles at Windsor College. Her focus then moved to painting and printmaking as she studied for her degree at Hatfield University (later to become The University of Hertfordshire), the student returns as a fully fledged artist.

Mitzie explains how she evolved a painting style which brings together her love of textures and painting. She will be  discussing her techniques and how she experiments on a wide range of surfaces and materials. She will also be talking about how her life experiences have impacted on her art, and especially how she managed to shed an over-developed sense of accuracy to paint in a more fluid and vibrant style.

After hearing Mitzie’s interesting story you will have a chance to talk with her, mingle with other like minded artists and have a chat over a glass of wine, whilst viewing some of Mitzie’s original art work that will be on display. You will find a selection of work ranging from watercolours, pastels, and oils on canvas.

This lecture is open to all HVA members and is free to enjoy.  For non-members there is a small fee of £3 payable on the door, this allows you to enjoy an interesting and insightful lecture by one of the counties leading artists. The evening also includes light refreshments – what better way could there be to enjoy a cultural evening?

Don’t forget the lecture starts at 7.30pm sharp.
