Faculty Profile: Marjorie Glick, Watercolor
If you’ve picked up our fall catalog, you’ve no doubt already been drawn into the inspiring beauty of Marjorie Glick’s watercolors. Her “Marsh Radiance” graces the cover of our fall catalog and is generating a lot of “oooohs” and “aahhhs,” even from those not quite yet willing to admit that autumn is on its way.
Marjorie Glick is known for her large scale and vivid realism watercolors that are inspired by New England’s places of antiquity and by the beauty found in nature. We couldn’t be more delighted to offer her classes and workshops here at ACA.
Now starting her second year as a teacher at the Arlington Center for the Arts, Marjorie is a warm, inspiring and challenging teacher who helps beginning and advanced students alike take their watercolor skills to the next level.
“I absolutely LOVE Marjorie Glick,” said one of her students. “She was so insightful, and inspiring. She always did a great lengthy demonstration each week, to help us understand how watercolors work, wet, dry, etc.”
This fall, Marjorie is offering Watercolor Foundations, Intermediate Watercolor, and a one-day Plein Air Workshop at Menotomy Rocks Park in Arlington.
Marjorie has been painting for 30 years and has exhibited at several regional museums and galleries including the DeCordova Museum, Berkshire Art Museum, Brockton Art Museum, Beth Urdang Gallery, Boston, and the Forum Gallery in New York.
She has served as Adjunct Faculty for The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University and has been a member of the faculty of the DeCordova Museum School, in Lincoln, MA since 1986. She leads plein air workshops each summer in Maine and in 2009, she led a painting workshop in Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France.
Marjorie’s work is in over 40 corporate and private collections including The Federal Reserve Bank, Fidelity Investments, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Tufts-New England Medical Center, all in Boston; Friends Hospital, in Philadelphia. She is the recipient of grants from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation (Artist’s Resource Trust Grant) and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
