The Essex Water Color Club, now in the 81st year of continuous activity in the watercolor painting community, is pleased to announce that New Jersey's own Marilyn Rose will conduct a watercolor painting demonstration of her award winning techniques on Sunday, November 11, 2012 from 2-4 PM at the Livingston Senior Community Center, 204 Hillside Avenue, Livingston, NJ. Marilyn will be doing a fast and loose watercolor demonstration, working from sketches and photos to create an original watercolor interpretation. The demonstration is open to the public and is free to members and $5 for non-members and guests. Refreshments will be served.
Marilyn is a signature member of the Northeast Watercolor Society, New Jersey Watercolor Society (Membership Chair), and the Baltimore Watercolor Society. Her paintings have won numerous awards in statewide and national exhibitions, and are in private collections across the country. Her illustrations have appeared in national magazines. She frequently demos and gives workshops for state and regional organizations. Marilyn grew up in Chicago, and earned her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis as a Fred Conway Fine Arts Fellow, & continued her studies at New York’s School of Visual Arts.
This has been a busy summer for Marilyn as she has been doing many juried Plein Air events, having won second prize in the recent Vermont Plein Air event, an honorable mention at the Wayne, Pennsylvania event, and the Grand Prize at the Billsboro Winery Event in Geneva NY. She has had work juried into the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Arts Club (at the National Arts Club in NY), The Northeast Watercolor Society at the Kent Art Gallery and was invited to be part of a group show entitled “Fresh” at the Traillworks Gallery in Newton, New Jersey. Her work will also be hanging in the gallery at Congregation Shomrei Emunah this fall.
This fall, she will be teaching a series of classes, on Wednesday nights, in Montclair at the Art Garage (formerly known as art@the studio.) For more information, contact her at (973) 403-1483 , visit her at Marilynroseart.com and “like” her page at https://www.facebook.com/MarilynRoseArt.
