Carter is an associate member of Oil Painters of America and the Portrait Society of America. She is an award-winning, signature member of Associated Creative Artists, a signature member and President of the Pastel Society of the Southwest, and a signature member of the Pastel Society of America.

“There is such great joy in transforming what many view as ordinary objects or elements into beautiful works of art, through skillful use of form, light and color. It is my goal to create paintings that draw the viewer in, so I may share my personal vision, experience and emotion. My hope is that the experience will be rich enough and compelling enough that the viewer, for a moment, becomes part of the story.” – Lucille Carter, PSA, ACA, PSSW.

Lucille Carter will also present a Special 1 day Workshop – January 16th – $65.00 at the Farmers Branch Rec Center
