ERATH COUNTY (April 26, 2017) – Meet Maci Ellen Reyna , 7, a second grader at Comanche Elementary School. While she’s looking forward to summer time so she can enjoy her favorite hobbies – shopping, swimming, traveling, fishing and hunting, she is currently the featured artist at the Stephenville Public Library.
Reyna’s exhibit will run from May 5 through June 30 at the Stephenville Public Library, located at 174 North Columbia Street. Their hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.; Thursday 12 p.m. until 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
In addition to loving animals, she is shown in one photo below with two of her dogs – Trigger and Bullet – and she has two other faithful companions – Rageous and Spike, Reyna is a regular at Kids Paint the Town, Art Camps and private classes at the Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council.
CTFAC Executive Director Julie Crouch Smith said, “Maci is an amazing young artist and an absolute joy to be around. Her love of animals is evident in her artwork, and she is already an advocate for animals. Maci is such an impressive young lady and we can’t wait to see where her interests take her next.”
Reyna said she loves being creative and admits she does have a bit of an artistic flare, which is why she enjoys the events and camps that are hosted by the Cross Timbers Fine Art Council. She volunteers for CAPA at the Comanche Animal Shelter. She helped out at their annual Bark Bake sale in February and this past Christmas, she donated food and treats for all the dogs and cats using her own allowance money.
