The Coastal Arts Guild welcomes Marion Moir to the guild’s October 2nd, 2014 luncheon held the first Thursday of each month for members and guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Newport Visual Arts Center’s 2nd floor classroom/meeting room. All those interested are invited to attend.
Marion Moir is a 40-year resident of the Newport area. Her background is one of depth and began while taking watercolor lessons from noted watercolorist Harry Neimela. She continued her studies through Oregon State University and thereafter studied privately with West Coast artists and abroad. Her background as a designer, teacher and book illustrator can be seen in her wide array of finished pieces from paintings of boats, fishermen, local scenes, ranch life, puffins and other sea birds, flowers, shell printing, to “gyotaku” (fish rubbing,) Asian art and collage pieces.
Moir grew up on a ranch in Northern California and still returns each year for branding. Her energy is kinetic and that is apparent in her work as well as the joy she feels in volunteering her time for many local charities including the ‘Arts Care” program at Good Samaritan hospital and her love of ‘hula hoop!’
Please join CAG for this luncheon and guest speaker who will undoubtedly be inspiring and educational.
