3/22/2016 - Carolyn Bucha, an Award-winning Watercolor Artist

MEDIA RELEASE, March 22, 2016, Southbury, CT


The Southbury Public library is hosting Carolyn Bucha, an award-winning watercolor artist who specializes in book and greeting card illustration on Tuesday, April 19th at 2:00pm in the library’s Kingsley Room. She will do a PowerPoint presentation about how she became an illustrator and show samples of her work. Born in England, her artistic style was influenced by the years she spent in Paris and the Middle East. She is keenly interested in the interaction between color and design, especially in flowers, gardens, pottery and architecture. In conjunction with this program, her work will be on display in the Gloria Cachion Art Gallery from April 1 – April 27th.

Born in England, Ms. Bucha has painted for H. George Caspari cards for the last 27 years and for Hallmark Cards in Kansas City. In addition, she has freelanced for various publishers, including Readers Digest, Friedman/Fairfax Publishing and Storey Publications. Her work can be seen in many books, on tins, trays, floor coverings as well as a successful line of prints.

Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library. To register, please call the Reference Desk at 203-262-0626 x 130 or stop by the Reference Desk.
