Local artist Zeinab Ghais puts finishing touches on one of her works for her "Chart Maps" series. The mermaid's tail is highlighted with gold leafing and will join the other artwork at the Art League Gallery, 1921 5th Street. "Chart Maps" are on display to the public for the month of August and the panels are for sale as well.

The Art League of Bay City and Matagorda County is showcasing the series “Chart Maps” by Zeinab Ghais all month long.
   The event is free and open to the public on Sunday, Aug. 9 from 3 – 5p.m. at the Art League Gallery, 1921 5th Street in Bay City.
   Refreshments will be served for all attendees.
   All of the art on display is for sale and Ghais is open to taking some commissions as well.
   For this series, Ghais drew inspiration from oceanic flora and sea creatures along with art nouveau designs.
   “I’ve always been drawn to Art Nouveau and I wanted ‘Chart Maps’ to be in that vein,” said Ghais.
   At the same time, they are lose and playful, maybe a little primitive and folk, she added.
   “Chart Maps” is a mixed media series that includes acrylic paints, paper and some gold leafing, depending on the subject.
