Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, Offers Works by Willie Marlowe

Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Willie Marlowe: Paintings from Venice: 2006 - 2011, on view through Oct. 26, 2011.

Marlowe is an international artist and teacher of North Carolinian origin. She is primarily known for her small, intimate acrylic and mixed media work on paper. Marlowe often uses geometric and organic shapes and symbols, all of which reflect her interest in botany, marine life, Celtic culture and the archaeology of Europe, the Yucaton and Russia. She has been invited to show in Ireland, Canada, England, Croatia, and Germany, to name but a few.

Marlowe was born in 1943 in Whiteville, NC. She received her BS from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC, followed by an MFA from the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID. During the summer of 1964, while still an undergraduate, she continued her art studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia under the tutelage of renowned artists Francis Speight and Roswell Weidner. For over twenty years, Marlowe has taught painting and drawing classes at the Sage Colleges of Albany in Albany, NY. She also taught watercolor classes in two of the Sage Colleges’ international studies programs, as well as in Scotland and Ireland

This exhibition represents a variety of works by this international artist. This retrospective was launched at the Opalka Gallery, The Sage Colleges in Albany, New York. Selections from the show have toured in three locations in New York, including the Arkell Museum. A beautiful 32 page full color catalog accompanies the show and will be given with each purchase.
