Artfolios: Trunk Show with artists Marsha Thrift Marion and Patricia Dixon

May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Trunk Show will take place as part of the May Art Crush in the Arts District. Hors d’oeuvre will be served. All are welcome.

Marsha Thrift MarionArtfolios Artist, has always loved to draw and paint. Being honored with a green ribbon for a colored chalk drawing in the fourth-grade lead to her pursuing art as a career. After working as both an Interior Designer and a Graphic Artist, she returned to her passion of painting and teaching art to both children and adults. Teaching encourages Marsha to experiment with almost every medium. Her favorite medium is soft pastels: the direct contact with the paper and the explosion of color and texture is exhilarating! Yet, she also loves to work in oil and mixed media. Marsha considers her somewhat impressionistic style as “painterly realism” with a fascinating touch of abstraction to provide a little mystery for the viewer. Texture and color are dominant in her work as Marsha attempts to portray the beauty of the world around her.

Since she was young Patricia DixonArtfolios Artist, knew that she would spend her life creating art and making music. Originally from Chile, Patricia has mainly lived and worked in North Carolina. A classically trained guitarist, she taught for 38-years as Assistant Professor of Practice at Wake Forest University. Even while teaching and performing, she continued to purse and exhibit her artwork. Nature is Patricia’s guide: she explores ways to convey beauty while experimenting with different topics and mediums that bring coherence to her creations. Each artwork celebrates the richness and mysteries of this magnificent planet. Patricia feels blessed to have both art and music adding meaning to her life.
