Internationally known artist, author and educator, Marilyn Sholin creates a show about the best parts of Asheville, NC. The people, the mountains, the arts, the food.
All that makes it:
Marilyn moved to Asheville from Miami, Florida and has never looked back. Her incredible twenty five years as an award winning portrait photographer took a turn to painting ten years ago and she pursued painting with a passion and a twist. Her original paintings involved a long process of starting with photo references that are combined on the computer and after painting them digitally they are then printed on canvas and again painted with acrylics and other mediums giving the paintings a depth and layers that bring them to life.. All her paintings are originals and involve a great deal of color and vibrancy capturing moods and moments and some are whimsical collages.
Marilyn’s paintings have won Best of Show at the juried Grace Gallery and has also hung in the Asheville Airport Gallery. She has been working on “Aah Asheville” to show her joy in living here, but will also include award winning pieces from New Orleans, Miami Beach and a variety of other pieces from her City Art collection.
The show will be open through the holidays and more information can be found by stopping by Ananda and picking up a card after seeing the show live and in person.
Marilyn is also one of Larks authors and a contributor on the popular www.pixiq.com site.
