Women Defining Themselves – Exhibition

Marion’s works will be included in the art exhibition at Rowan University, showcasing the works of the founding artist-members of the SOHO 20 gallery in New York. The exhibition which runs from May 4 through July 27 commemorates the 45th anniversary of this historically significant women’s cooperative art gallery.

The Passing of An Artist

Marion Ranyak died peacefully on August 22, 2018. I had just visited with her a few days prior and she was in good spirits, although her health had greatly declined. Many thanks are due to the health aides who assisted her in her last days; they so kindly took care of her basic needs. Also, thanks to the visitors who came and spent time with her in the past few months.

Marion’s artwork will live on, adorning the walls of so many homes and other locations. For those who only have visited this site, I wish you could experience her works in person. They have an affect on the viewer that does not come with the small digital imagery on this site.
