Maricopa Center for Entrepreneurship opens its June exhibit of local art tonight with an artist’s reception for Samantha Hawksworth.

A stay-at-home mom, Hawksworth took private art lessons in high school, eventually shifting from colored pencils to painting. She now calls herself a self-taught abstract painter.

“My artwork is inspired from within,” said Hawksworth, whose husband works for the City of Maricopa. “Each piece flows from the ideas that the Spirit of God gives me. Some have specific stories; others create their own story as they come to life on the canvas. I find that the best pieces of art are created when my heart takes over and my thoughts are silenced.”

Tonight’s reception starts at 6 p.m. at MCE, 20800 John Wayne Parkway, Suite 108. Hawksworth’s art will be on display all month. For more information, call 520-510-5535
