Via Umbria Hosts Eileen Lyons' Art
“The quality of the light, those vibrant colors in A Coruña, a province in northern Spain were my inspiration,” says fourth generation artist, Eileen Lyons about her paintings and lithographs, on display Thursday evening at a party hosted by Via Umbria.
Working as an artist and art educator in the Washington, D.C. area for more than 20 years, Lyons studied lithography and painting with a group from the Corcoran College of Art + Design along with several artists from Madrid in the summer of 2008.
There she was enchanted with the small town’s beauty and the warmth of its people.
Lyons mingled with friends, art lovers and Via Umbria owners Suzy and Bill Menard.
Guests were treated to a Prosecco tasting by Brian Forsgren from Downey Selections and light hors d’oeuvres by Executive Chef Johanna Hellrigl.
