Mowson retired from a 25-year career in engineering in 2001 to reside in the Finger Lakes region of New York to become a full-time painter. Mowson will demonstrate his unique painting techniques during the open reception
“In my many years of travel, I have never found a more beautiful or diverse landscape than this area,” Mowson said. “One could spend a lifetime documenting these hidden treasures.”
