BMS, HPU faculty member Julie Mize honored as Brownwood Art Association’s Artist of the Year

BROWNWOOD – November 11, 2020 – Julie Mize, art teacher at Brownwood Middle School and adjunct instructor of art at Howard Payne University, was recently recognized as the Brownwood Art Association’s Artist of the Year at a reception held in conjunction with an exhibit of her artwork. The work will be on display at the Brownwood Art Center through Saturday, November 21.

“Being recognized by my friends in the Art Association is an honor,” Mize said. “I appreciate their kind thoughts in presenting this award to me.”

The related exhibit features photographs, watercolor paintings and mixed-media pieces with subject matter from nature as well as architectural forms.

“As an art educator, I must have familiarity with numerous art media and processes,” Mize said. “For my own work I especially enjoy photography. Through the years, I’ve also practiced with watercolors and various drawing materials, and I’ve enjoyed finding ways to combine them. This exhibit shows artworks from all these interests.”

The Brownwood Art Center is located at 215 Fisk Avenue. There is no charge for admission, but masks and social distancing are required for attendees.

The exhibit is open to the public Wednesdays, November 11 and 18, and Thursdays, November 12 and 19, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., as well as Saturdays, November 14 and 21, from noon to 3 p.m. Mize will be in attendance during the Wednesday evening times.
