Did you know that Marion’s Council on Aging & Community Center at 465 Mill Street has an art gallery? The idea for an art gallery grew out of the statewide “Arts Week” in 2018. The goal is to provide professional and amateur artists with the opportunity to display their work in a non-juried or judged manner. Each month has a theme assigned to it and has included senior shows, all-age shows, and even children’s shows. Specific art groups such as the Wareham/Bourne Art Association and the Canal Side Artists have been invited to showcase their work. The Art Gallery welcomes new exhibitors and viewers!
During the month of July, six local artists are featured in a Mixed Medium exhibit: Anthi Frangiadis, Deborah Kuhlman-Hussey, Darla Parsons, Diana Parsons, Mary Ross, and Alice Shire. Mediums include paper collage, fiber art, pastels, photography, and watercolors. This show runs from July 5through August 12. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, July 11 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm and your attendance is welcomed!
Rounding out the year, a Children’s Show will be featuredAugust 14-September 2, Canal Side Artists from September 4-October 30, Art for All Ages from November 1-December 2and Anything Goes-Whimsy, Abstract, Fun & Fantastic from December 4 -January 2.
