Paper Mache for sculpture and mixed medium, such as watercolor mixed with glitter, metallic watercolor, acrylic paint, markers and pen are the materials Clarks Summit artist Marnie Granville incorporates in her art.

Granville, 10, the featured artist at the Clarks Summit Second Friday Art Walk, April 12; said, I feel really excited and proud, because my dad said a lot of artists aren’t famous, so I feel lucky to be able to share my artwork with a lot of people.”

The artist plans to continue creating art in the future. She said, “I want to be a marine biologist and an artist,” and cited her mom as her inspiration. “My mom inspired me to do art and what I should paint or draw. I do think you are born being creative, because my mom is creative and I think I get it from her.”

Granville is one of 10 artists to exhibit at Sole to Soul, 535 South State Street, throughout the month of April to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the business.

Artists to display their wares are Laura Orvieto, clay; Jim Cook, photography; Curtis Salonick, photography; Paul Bracey, photography; Tim Hill, pen and ink; Deb Hamby, oil on canvas; Jen Brandon, oil on canvas; Kristie Miller McMahon, jewelry and Judith Youshock, watercolor and batik.

Art walk hours are 5 to 9 p.m. and an “After Art Walk” party will be held . For more information, email Charlie Charlesworth at ffnepa@epix.net.
