Dr. Carl Price and Dr. Arthur Hawes of The Center for Plastic Surgery, located in Suite 500 at the Bone and Joint Center, 3555 S. National, will host a public reception for a exhibition of artwork by local artist Elizabeth Chapman on Tuesday, December 7 at 6 p.m. An abstract expressionist painter, Chapman's artwork captures the essence of the subject in a blended style of impressionism and realism. Chapman was born in Caracas, Venezuela, the beautiful country to which she attributes her love for color. She is now a professional teaching artist who also exhibits and sells her work in the Springfield area. The Center for Plastic Surgery partnered with the Springfield Regional Arts Council for this exhibit.
