Marsha Nelson is the Leeds Arts Council’s featured artist in July. The public is invited to the opening reception on July 2, 2017, 1:30-3:30 pm, to view her delightful paintings. Admission is free.
As a self-taught artist, Marsha has always enjoyed art. In the past thirteen years, she has pursued her art with new dedication and passion, taking eleven art courses at Jacksonville State University. Since 2011, she has been privileged to be a student in the Birmingham atelier of master oil painter John Lonergan.
Marsha is a representational painter whose favorite mediums are oil and watercolor. In 2016, she achieved Signature Bronze Membership in the Watercolor Society of Alabama. She is gratified to have received recognition for several of her paintings which were juried into WSA exhibits. Nunnally’s Noble Street Frame and Gallery in Anniston represents her as a member of East Alabama Artists, Inc.
“I am so grateful God has blessed me with a measure of artistic talent, as well as the incredible gift of my wonderful husband, who loves sharing my artistic journey.”
Ms. Nelson’s paintings will be on exhibit through August 4, 2017. You may view examples of her work at: http://www.marshanelsonart.com/
