The City of Lee’s Summit is hosting a “Meet the Artist” event featuring the work of local artist Eric Doucette. This unique opportunity to engage with a local artist will be held on Thursday, Jan. 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the lobby of City Hall, 220 SE Green St., Lee’s Summit.

Doucette’s focus is providing clients with creative finishes unique for their home or business. His painted finishes include murals, faux finishes, wood graining, glazing and custom hand-drawn designs. Other applications he provides are metallic leaf and metal patina finishes, antiquing and distressed finishes, concrete staining, plaster finishes and faux stone.

Doucette’s work was recognized locally at the Summit Art Festival where he was selected “Best of Show” winner in 2016.

“It’s art through the ages. I work primarily with ornamental design and my medium is tinted plaster,” says Doucette. “When you look at these pieces you may want to think they’re painted pieces but when you get a little bit closer you see the depth in these pieces, you see the character of these pieces and the old world effects.”

The “Meet the Artist” reception is an informal opportunity to view Doucette’s extraordinary artwork and learn firsthand about his inspiration and process. Light hors d’oeuvres and wine sampling available, compliments of Third Street Social. The public is invited to this free event.

Doucette’s artwork will be on public display at City Hall during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, until mid-April 2018.
