Joan Cobb Marsh returns to Miami Beach with a new collection of oil paintings at the Williams McCall Gallery South of Fifth. Kicking off with an artist reception that is open to the public on Saturday, February 13th at 6 pm, the exhibit will run until March 9th.
Marsh shares “To observe and explore small familiar objects and then interpret their uniqueness in a large oil format interested me this past year. Miami Beach offered many motifs which l have tried to explore, especially walkways, water views, and recreational activities. My mixed media collages are lighthearted explorations using graphite, canvas, silk, wood, thread, and found objects. Stimulation for the mixed media collages are grounded in observed emotional states which I have tried to represent in color and form.”
Joan Cobb Marsh is a known and globally collected artist who specializes in oil paintings. Marsh perfected her sensitivity to color as a young student of Henry Henche who was a protégé of Charles Hawthorne, the great American painter and founder of the renowned Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
During New England’s cold winter months, Marsh paints in South Beach. Her time in South Beach has inspired her brilliant and popular Port of Miami, South Pointe Park, Florida View, South Beach, and Everglades series.
