Local artist Jenny Lawrence is the featured artist presenting her “Art in City Hall” and I encourage all residents to visit and view her excellent display. I feel it highlights her variety of artistic talents and her love of the subject. She primarily specializes in pastel, colored pencil and pen and ink.
She is a resident of Lakeland and is a lifelong artist. Her art reflects her love of horses and animals. In addition to being an artist, she also owns and manages a boarding stable in Lakeland, and competes nationally in horse dressage.
Jenny Lawrence has a wealth of experience and interests which combine for a unique artistic presentation. She obtained a BFA from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, has years of experience as a commercial graphic designer and notes that “I’ve been drawing horses since I could pick up a pencil. There is no animal more beautiful to me”. Her love of both horses and art present a special character to her art that I enjoy every day!
City Hall is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on regular business days. Persons wishing to purchase any of the works may contact the artist directly. I encourage you to stop by and see this excellent display. I am always pleased to find a local artist of this caliber, especially when she agrees to display her art in City Hall!
