The unique art of Diana Pratt Dice and Lucy Brady are on display in the City Hall Art Gallery (Community room) now through Aug. 4. In describing her work, Dice said, “I gave myself permission from creating traditional paintings to more daring and provocative work. The brighter, the bolder … the better! This choice would change my life forever. People enter my Norcross studio and tell me I am every bit as colorful as my paintings. Oh, I hope so!”
Brady has had work shown in juried exhibits in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and here in Georgia. A member of the Georgia Watercolor Society, Southern Colours and North Gwinnett Artist’s Association, her paintings are in acrylic, watercolor or pen and ink. She has studied widely with many well-known art instructors, earning a degree in graphic design and working as an art director. Brady has taught adult and children drawing classes. A current project is a series of paintings of Georgia state and national parks. “Traveling around the country to see all the parks is great fun and very educational,” she said.
The gallery, made possible by the Snellville Arts Commission, is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at City Hall, 2342 Oak Road, Snellville, GA 30078.
