Watercolor Demo Tonight With Artist Marla Greenfield
Lynnfield Art Guild's October demonstration features award-winning painter Marla Greenfield.
The following is an announcement from the Lynnfield Art Guild:
The Lynnfield Art Guild invites the public and its members to attend a watercolor painting demonstration by Marla Greenfield of Wayland in its October demonstration on Thursday, the 18th at 7 p.m. at the Lynnfield Senior Center.
The American Watercolorist Magazine described her painting process in a 2010 article entitled on “Patient Layering Leading to Vibrant Light”. While Ms. Greenfield has been involved in art since she was a girl, she also received a B.A. from Tufts University in Economics and a Masters from B.U. in Business Administration and worked for over two decades in the investment and high tech area concurrent with her art. Her art education includes studies at the DeCordova Museum School, with artist Ray Doyle, and at the New England Watercolor Society. Since retiring in 1998 to spend more time with her family, Marla has been able to more fully pursue her art career. The artist has won many awards for her art, including in the past three years: 1st Place for watercolor in the Duxbury Art Association’s Winter Juried Show; 2nd Place in the R.I. Watercolor Society Association’s National Watermedia Competition; and a Bronze Medal in the New England Watercolor Society Member Show. You can see her work at Florentine Frames in Weston, Powers Gallery in Acton and both the Hoadley Gallery and Canyon Ranch in Lenox. Residing in Wayland with her husband and two children, Ms. Greenfield does commission work and teaches private watercolor lessons. A member of many prestigious art societies, she is the past President/Vice President of the New England Watercolor Society.
The public is invited to attend this and all monthly LAG demonstrations, which include refreshments and the opportunity to meet area artists. The Guild is pleased to announce that its 2012 -13 Board includes president Carol MacKendrick and Vice President Jane Booras, both of Lynnfield. The event is free to members; non-members are requested to donate $3. Doors open at 6:45 PM.
The LAG is a non-profit organization established in 1964. LAG's mission statement is to encourage and inspires individuals of all ages who have an appreciation, interest and love of art to express their talent while striving to achieve the highest level of their artistic ability. The Guild provides a platform for artists of all ages, working in the areas of painting, drawing, fine crafts, photography and sculpture, to network with fellow artisans, display their work and stimulate a cultural awareness and appreciation for fine art in the community. Each year LAG gives a scholarship to a deserving student graduating from LHS, who has shown an interest in the study of art. The 200 members come from over 25 area communities. Membership includes the privilege of participating in both the winter show and spring judged show.
