MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (November 24, 2015) - Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page and the Mount Pleasant Culture, Arts & Pride Commission continue to promote awareness of local artists and community pride through an innovative program called Art in the Mayor’s Office.
“Mount Pleasant has a rich cultural and artistic heritage and the Mayor’s Office is a natural place to display local art to visitors and residents,” said Mayor Page. “We have had some great art displayed in my office and I currently enjoy ‘Hoo’ a wonderful work by Miriam Lucas, a gifted oil painter influenced by the beauty of childhood, her grandchildren, fairytales and the many books she has read.”
This is the first public display for Lucas who has lived in the Lowcountry most of her life and recently moved to Mount Pleasant. She is self-taught and began painting three years ago. “Hoo” is inspired by her love of animals and storybook characters. Miriam said, “I paint to get my feelings across. People don’t believe they have many feelings but they do. It’s important to express them.”
