Bruce Parlier’s work has benefited Mount Aviat and Oblate Sisters, who helped him in time of need

 

CHILDS, Md. — The atmosphere around Mount Aviat Academy has been made cheerier thanks to the talents of Elkton artist Bruce Parlier, who also happens to be the school’s part-time maintenance man.

Parlier, 57, has been working in art since he was a kid in Claymont, Del. He specializes in wall murals, having done them on buildings, a lot of restaurants and on the inside and outside walls of people’s homes. He likes to do religious images and donates pieces of his work each year to the Oblate Sisters of St. Francis de Sales, who operate Mount Aviat, for their auction and Christmas bazaar. Read more »
