An acrylic painting on canvas titled Ace of Club by New New painter Marjorie Minkin, executed in 1986. Iridescent colors smear down the canvas in a free-from and fluid manner. The shapes and shadows form themselves and the interplay of color remains subtle yet noticeable.
Marjorie received her B.A. in Philosophy and Minor in Studio Art from Skidmore College in New York. She also has received an M.A. in Philosophy from Boston University, an Ed. M. in Counseling at Boston University. Returning to her love of painting, she attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts receiving her diploma & Fifth Year Certificate. In 1982 Minkin attended the inaugural workshop of the Triangle Arts Association founded by sculptor Sir Anthony Caro, and has served on the Triangle advisory board for many years.
