Local Artist to Read New Book, Lead Demonstration

On November 22nd, Black Creek Arts Council invites everyone to attend a book reading by Patz Fowle at the Darlington Library. The event will last from 11:00am to noon. Patz will be reading her new book, Remember When. Admission to the reading is free.

Following the book reading, Fowle will demonstrate how she illustrates humorous animals and attendees will create their own fun drawings, which they will be able to take home. This event is appropriate for all ages and fun for the whole family. Supplies will be provided.

Patz Fowle is the quintessential artist; a true creator and character. Fowle is a Darlington County resident and an internationally-known artist. She developed the Patz Process, a ceramic hand-building technique, in 1970. Since then, she has shown at Madison Square Garden, been the focus of a documentary, had residencies across the United States and overseas, and, most recently, studied at the Art Institute of Chicago.

The Darlington Library is located at 204 North Main Street in Darlington.
