Cisco Willison: Coastal Charm

Painting of palm trees on a coastline

In the Cloister Gallery in April, artist Frances “Cisco” Willison will present “Coastal Charm,” a unique collection of watercolors depicting nature’s coastal treasures. An opening reception will be held in the gallery on Friday, April 1, from 6–8 p.m.

Willison, a native of Port Lavaca, has had a lifelong love of art, and studied drawing and painting in her youth. Following a 30-plus-year career in engineering, she returned to art, studying ceramics, drawing, and painting at Houston’s Glassell School of Art. She and her husband live part-time in Rockport, and “Coastal Charm” depicts the allure of the Texas Gulf Coast, its relaxing beaches, colorful palm trees, majestic wading birds and spoonbills, exciting fish, seashells, and native plants.
