Marion artists to be featured in MAC exhibit

Sep 3, 2021

MARION — A new exhibit featuring pastels, watercolors, and oils by Marion residents Sarah Brown and Judy Carver is coming to the Marion Art Center.

Brown has been painting the landscape and seascape of the South Coast and Cape for years, first in watercolor and then pastel. Brown was so excited by the luscious colors and textures of the medium that all her work is now in pastel. She loves painting the sea, streams, and bogs. Brown teaches pastel classes at her home studio on Cove Street in Marion.

Judy Carver retired early from real estate investment and management, and has since pursued her interest in drawing and painting. Carver has taken watercolor classes at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Marion Art Center, the Rhode Island School of Design, and with several professional New England watercolorists. She is inspired by strong color contrasts, particularly the way light and shadow play over objects or building structures and across the landscape.

The exhibit runs Sept. 10 through Oct. 8, with an opening reception on Friday, September 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the art center. All visitors must wear a mask while inside the Marion Art Center.
