Blue Ridge Mountains Artist in Residence
Marsha Hamby Savage is the "Artist in Residence" for the fourth quarter of 2012 ... the show will run through January 4, 2013. The Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association (BRMAA) is located at 420 West Main Street, Blue Ridge, GA 30513. The Art Center is open Tuesday thru Sunday from 10AM to 6PM.
Marsha has 45 paintings in this show downtown in the Historic Courthouse now known as "The Art Center." Her paintings are created in the studio and plein air (outdoors from life) and are in pastel, acrylic or oil. Well known for her paintings of nature, Marsha wants viewers of her artwork to feel like they can just step into the painting. Her favorite saying, "It's not the destination, but the journey," represents what she hopes the viewer will see ... and feel ... a journey of the mind as well as the feet! The paintings in this show represent the beautiful area of North Georgia and the coast of Georgia, along with paintings created from journeys to Tennessee, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Ireland.
