Artist to display works at City Hall Sept. 3

SNELLVILLE – Artist Ingrid Bolton will have her art displayed in City Hall beginning Sept. 3.

A reception for the area artist will take place from 1:30 to 4 p.m. in the Community Room in City Hall, 2342 Oak Road. 

“My works are my artistic interpretation of a visual and emotional memory,” she said. “They are representative of the very moment of inspiration and encompass many subject matters may these be landscapes, flowers, animals or architecture as they resonate in me. I strive to convey my memories with bold and rich colors. To me, colors express vitality, vibrancy and life.”

Bolton said she paints mostly with oil paints because she said they allow her to express harmony through their rich and deep satin-like properties.
