Noted Palm Beach artist, Edna Hibel, has been selected by the National Women's History Project of Santa Rosa, California, as one of this year's twelve National Women's History Month Honorees.
She was selected due to her originality, imagination, and beauty of her paintings, stone lithography, etchings, and porcelain art created over more than eight decades. Hibel and her fellow recipients will be honored on March 28th at the Puck Building in New York City.
Hibel was informed of this high honor just prior to January 13th, her 91st birthday, which she celebrated with family and friends at the Hibel Museum of Art in Jupiter, Florida, by showing how she draws on a Bavarian limestone, the first step in creating an original stone lithograph. The renowned artist, the only U.S. woman to win the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts, has created more multi-color stone lithographs than any other artist since the invention of the medium in 1795.
