Woman finds 2nd careerin art

Sandra Marson is showcasing her artwork in a One Woman Art Exhibition at the Fairfield Bay Library. The exhibit is sponsored by the North Central Arkansas Artist League in collaboration with the library. This NCAAL show will feature larger than life flowers and abstractions in colors of the flowers.

Marson lives in Jacksonville. She has a BA from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She has always been interested in the arts. After retiring from First Electric Cooperative Corp. five years ago, she has strived to make art her second career. Marson has taken workshops from several noted artists including Frank Webb, Doug Walton, Don Andrews, Mark Mehaffey, Owen Hunt and Birget O’Connor. Marson is a member of North Central Artist League, Arkansas League of Artists, Mid-Southern Watercolorists and Missouri Watercolor Society. Also, as a member of the Arkansas Artist Registry, Marson’s paintings are online.

In May 2013, Marson had her first solo at Christ Church in Little Rock. Marson states that she tries to evoke an emotion through the use of hot colors or a cooler palette of blues to find a calming experience. She prefers to paint from memory or create from the imagination.

Marson has a painting hanging in the MSW Juried Show at the Butler in Little Rock. She also just received ALA’s first place award in the Abstract Class of the 4th Annual Juried Show sponsored by ALA and the Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock.

Library patrons may view the exhibition through January 2014 during regular hours: 1 to 4 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Friday and 10 a.m to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays.
