Marla won the Bronze Medal in the New England Watercolor Society Member Show for her piece “Laura’s Quilt”. About her piece, Larry Powers, the show’s juror and owner of the Powers Gallery in Acton, MA, said “Skillful handling of a seemingly simple subject with complex detail and dramatic light. Raking light creates dramatic shapes drawing the viewer to inspect more closely as he is moved through the soft quilt to the crisp detail of the jewel above”. The show, at the Emmanuel Church on Newbury Street, is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until April 26th. View the complete image of “Laura’s Quilt” in Still Lifes section of the gallery.
