Mother-daughter artist duo to showcase work in exhibit

LAWRENCEVILLE - "People and Places," an exhibit of art by the mother-daughter duo of Judy Mizell and Karen Orellana will be on display at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse in downtown Lawrenceville through Nov. 17.

Mizell, who began her professional career in 1975, is a naturalist whose watercolors capture wildlife and animals in their natural settings. She and her husband have traveled extensively to research subjects for her paintings.

Mizell's daughter has taken to a different subject for her watercolors: the human face, particularly eyes and expressions. Like her mother, Orellana has used her experiences traveling as a source for her work.

"People and Places" opened Friday and an artists' reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday and is open to the public.

For more information about the exhibit, call the Historic Courthouse at 770-822-5450.
