A transplanted Canadian woman has been sharing her artistic talent with Atenas residents, and now the result is an art show.
The woman is Mary Park, a South African native who lived for years in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she was involved in music and art. She and her husband, Graham, moved to Atenas a year and a half ago, friends said.
Her students gather at a local café each Monday for instruction and enjoy each other’s company while creating their own masterpieces as watercolors or in oils.
The art show is Dec. 4 and 5 at the local Catholic church, and organizers hope to make it an annual event. A release said that 10 percent of the sales will be donated for leatherback turtle conservation.
