Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, Features Works by Pat Mariano

The Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, will present an exhibit of works by Pat Mariano, on view in the Seacoast Artists Gallery, in The Market Common in Myrtle Beach, from Aug. 1 - 31, 2013. A reception will be held on Aug. 3, from 1-4pm.

A native of Erie, PA, Mariano has traveled and lived all over the world with her husband who worked for the Dept. of State in the US Diplomatic Corp. She worked as a computer graphic artist between diplomatic postings. One day, seeking shelter from a rain storm, Mariano visited a quilt show and her artistic endeavors took another direction. She began her journey into fabric art: collaging, adding paper and digital images, then adding stitching, acrylic paint, ink and oil pastels.

Mariano’ works have been juried into many quilt and fine art shows, most recently ArtFields in Lake City, SC, the Waccamaw and the Seacoast Artists Guild shows, winning awards in both of the Guild shows.

The Seacoast Artists Gallery exhibits the original artwork of over 70 local artists. Oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, fiber art, photography, engraved silver and pottery is just some of the media that can be viewed and purchased at the gallery.

The Seacoast Artists Guild is a 501(c)(3) non-profit visual arts organization dedicated to promoting and advancing excellence in the visual arts through teaching, exhibits, workshops and special events. It is focused on developing and nurturing young artists-to-be through training programs, sponsorship of art scholarships and art shows.
