A closing reception for artist Sharon York will be at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Goddard Center's Art Studios facility.

York has been a painter for many years, but once children came along her priorities changed; she returned to school and received a degree in elementary education.

However, her desire to paint was still there.

"I strive to capture the essence of my subject using contrast, composition, color and the way the light plays with the subject," York said. "The moment I first started painting, I knew I was home, even though it has taken years for me to fulfill my artistic destiny."

The Goddard Center Art Studios are located at 425 1st Ave. SW.
