Art is a vital part of life, so we are fortunate in South Texas to be among a community which is always creating and displaying their work. This Thursday, South Texas has the chance to celebrate a porcelain painter. The McAllen Creative Incubator is proud to host Miriam Smith’s studio and present her annual exhibit Thursday, August 4, 2016.
“Porcelain painting is a beautiful way of displaying art in your home or office. A personally created art piece can be passed on from generation to generation, adding invaluable worth to it as the years go by,” says Smith.
Smith is part of the International Porcelain Artists and Teacher Incorporation. Miriam has also studied art in California alongside distinguished artists like Barbara Jensen, Jene Harpor, Celee Evans and Birget Porter, a porcelain painter who studied at the Royal Palace in Germany.
Smith has has created an array of art pieces for display this Thursday. In addition to creating her own work, Smith offers classes at her studio on a flexible schedule to a small number of students.
“People should consider taking the classes I offer, because the uncommon practice of this art is slowly disappearing, eventually making the porcelain painting technique nonexistent,” explained Smith. For more information contact Miriam Smith at 559-381-8094.
The Incubator is located at 601 N. Main Street in McAllen, Texas. Entrance to the Incubator is free. All art on display is available for sale. For more information or to learn how you can exhibit your art, contact Laura Robles at 956-687-2787.
