The Museum Welcomes Marjorie Mankin to the Artist's Corner
The Lakewood History Museum is pleased to announce that local renowned artist Marjorie Mankin will display her artwork in the Lakewood History Museum in the Artist's Corner through early November.
A reception is being planned for later this fall. The exhibit can be viewed during regular Museum hours, Wed-Sat, 12 noon-4 pm in the historic Colonial Center, 6211 Mt Tacoma Dr SW, across from Columbia Bank.
Marjorie has had a love of art since early childhood. Being blessed with an acute awareness of the beauty of creation, the colors, textures and shapes beckon her to interpret nature in her own style.
Marjorie has studied both commercial and fine art with many local and nationally renowned art instructors. These studies have strengthened her personal philosophy that one never stops growing in the knowledge of self expression in the visual arts. Marjorie has been featured in many exhibits including the Carnegie Institute, Handforth Gallery, Allied Arts and the Frye Museum. She also exhibits extensively in juried and invitational shows and her works have received numerous awards and honors.
Marjorie shares her experience by offering numerous classes to adults and children throughout the South Puget Sound. She will be demonstrating her techniques at the Washington State Fair in the Pavilion on Sat, September 22nd, 2018. Her artwork is also on display at Gallery Row, 3102 Harborview Dr in Gig Harbor, WA.
Her philosophy can best be understood by this statement she recently made: "Art is what pumps up your 'tire' so you can keep on rolling." In spite of life's challenges, she continues to rely on her gifts to see her through.
