Sparks paints in her studio in Cumming, GA., and happily sheds her fashion image for a painter’s smock. She has had several one-woman shows in Atlanta and in Highlands, NC and has participated in group shows in Charlotte, NC, Jacksonville, FL, Greenville, Columbia, and Charleston, SC. We especially love her barns, and still life flowers. Marilyn even has a couple bright, whimsical paintings that are meant to be hung outside on a covered deck or screened porch!
We have two original oil paintings on linen she just brought in. One is a painting of the pink apple blossoms that she painted after she enjoyed this recent season at Mercier Apple Orchard, the other is Lake Blue Ridge both are absolutely beautiful.
Pollard believes the meaning of painting to be "The true freedom of your self-expression, meaning having the ability to express yourself. Through a dedicated study, we seek knowledge of the craft. As we grow, develop, and practice the skills and principles, our own unique expression and our signature comes forth."
Getty’s left the medical world in 2005 and moved to Georgia to change careers. She started painting in July 2005 and fell in love with oil paint. Katherine’s work deals with the loving bonds between humans and animals and with the healing power of the natural world.
This weekend only we will take 10% off of their work as part of our Art in the Park celebration. See you soon!
