Welcome to the version 2.0 of this website. The catalog numbering has been revised to include a more comprehensive listing of works. Viewing of the work has been divided into the Gallery and the Catalogue Raisonné. The gallery is intended to highlight specific works for your enjoyment and will be changed from time to time. The catalog is intended to show all of Marion’s life work in major categories. Please feel free to post comments and use the Contact page to ask any questions. Thank you.
Published in American Artist, August 1985, Vol. 49 Issue 517, p44 by Georgina Challis, the article describes Marion’s artistic journey. She studied for two summers with teaching master Hans Hofmann where she discovered aesthetics. She became interested in photography which opened up the possibilities of realism as she began to paint nature’s shapes and forms. In 1981, she started painting landscapes. During her travels along the West Coast, Marion became fascinated by seacoasts. As of 1985, she had exhibited in more than 40 group shows and 14 solo shows since 1967.
Version 1.0 of this website was created in June 2014 and will be updated throughout the year. Most of the uploading of the catalog is complete and the inventory of paintings is partially available.
This website was first created in January, 2014, by Paul Ranyak and is being developed by James Ranyak.
Also, a special thanks to Dr. Andrew Hottle, who scanned the archive of Marion’s slides and created the initial catalog from her notes. Dr. Hottle is an art historian and an Associate Professor at Rowan University.
