OSWEGO, NY – Carol Tihy Burghart is the featured artist for December at the Oswego Public Library Art Gallery.
Flowers and landscapes are the subject of her water color works.
Formerly a hairdresser for 25 years, she started a second career as an artist by taking adult education courses, and becoming a student of Norman Roth in color theory, and using oil paints.
Her instruction from Judith Ann Benedict led to her concentration on water colors.
Douglas H. Teller, a professor of Art at George Washington University, taught her the finer points of that medium.
Currently, she teaches watercolor, and is a member of the Lakeside Artisans Co-op at Canal Commons.
Carol is a member of the Fulton Art Association, and in Florida a, member of the Suncoast Watercolor Society.
Married for 48 years to Charles Burghart, Carol is the mother of two daughters and grandmother to five children.
