Groton resident, Sue Marion is well known for her work as a muralist and painter of faux finishes. Examples can be seen in numerous homes and businesses throughout the region, as well as several in Groton itself. As if dividing time between her mural work and home life as a mother were not enough, Sue offers art classes, color consulting, and a new venture hosting painting parties called “Wet Your Palette.”

For our show, in addition to a selection of recent paintings, Sue has done a large landscape study, reminiscent of her mural style, painted on the surface of a door.

Sue was kind enough to introduce me to her friend and painting pal, Lisa Kamens of Acton. After raising three children, Lisa set her focus on art training, studying with Jeanne Zephir and taking many classes at the De Cordova Museum and Worcester Art Museum. Multiple sclerosis now puts limits on her mobility, but frees her to devote herself to perfecting her craft, in a home studio accompanied by her dog Ruben. I believe this exhibit will be Lisa’s first public showing.

A reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, April 25, from 2:00-4:00 pm. All are welcome.

This exhibit is made possible by the Groton Public Library Endowment Trust.
