Wayne County Council for the Arts is pleased to present in our Main Gallery, Paintings by “MARJORIE MARCANO and CHERYL LEONARD VANDENBURG”.

Marjorie Marcano was very fortunate to have the attention and encouragement of an excellent high school art teacher, Richard Hawver.  She spent a year studying fine art at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and worked for a few years in a textile design studio for Warmsetta Mills, also located in New York City.  After many years of doodling on everything and some serious drawing, she finally became motivated and took the first step and joined Wayne County Council for the Arts.  She has participated in workshops for oil painting, watercolor, sculpture and figure drawing offered by awarded and professional artists – Wayne Williams, Dr. Hwang Chang and Roland “Chip” Stevens.  Marjorie resides in Wayne County and continues to enjoy all types of art.

Cheryl Leonard VanDenBurg has lived on Canandaigua Lake and drawn inspiration from the Finger Lakes for over 30 years.  She was born in Providence, Rhode Island.  She summered there through her early 20’s and a love of the sea and water in general has been a strong influence to her work.  She began painting seriously at a very early age.  “Draws constantly when should be working”, was a familiar comment from school.

She lived and painted in Chicago, Illinois.  Cheryl studied at the Chicago Art Institute, Triton College and College of DuPage during her 14 years there.  Painting has always been her closest friend.  Travel and a “Wanderlust” for far places has taken her to Germany where she lived for a year and traveled middle Europe painting.  Painting trips abroad to France and Italy provided influence.

Cheryl’s theory is that a photograph can provide a better picture, but she can give you her opinion.  Comfortable in both watercolor and oil, her work is characterized by movement and mood.  There is a sculptured quality which shows up and may relate to seven years studying bronze sculpture with Wayne Williams at F.L.C.C in Canandaigua, New York.  Cheryl has her own identifiable style which weaves its pattern through the ever changing metamorphosis of her work.

In the Chris Fayad Members’ Gallery, we are happy to present artist Victoria E. Gibson.  Victoria attended Massachusetts College of Art and has taken various art classes and workshops over the years and managed to utilize her artistic talents in different career paths.  She worked as a floral designer in a Flower shop; ran  a Floral Department with artificial flowers  and made arrangements and decorations with dried flowers for craft shows.  She also worked as a Retail Advertising Representative for a daily newspaper.  Many of the newspaper’s clients were small or sole owner business so she designed and wrote the advertisements for them.

Her enjoyment of color and making up places to express a fleeting moment of time or feeling and attempting to store that for time in a solid form is her artwork.

These exhibits are on view from June 11 – July 3, 2015.  An opening reception, which is free to the public, with the artists will be held Friday, June 19, 5:30 to 7:30 pm.  

Wayne Art Gallery hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12:00 to 3:00 pm and by appointment.  Admission is free.  Visit these exciting exhibits and stop by our great Gallery Gift Store.  Gift certificates are available for classes and gift store items.  Wayne County Council for the Arts is located at 108 W.
