Marianna Ross - "Luminous Spring!" Exhibit

On Sunday March14th, Marianna Ross, one of ALOC's beloved artist and member, held a reception at her Solo Exhibit "Luminous Spring" at the University Club of Winter Park, FL. What a treat to admire her beautiful Silk Paintings adorning the walls of the large gallery space!
At 3pm Marianna put her painting apron on and demonstrated the art of Silk Painting.
 Marianna explained the technical aspects of Silk Painting, and invited all guests to participate and discover fabric painting on silk.
Many people enjoyed the process and painted in groups. It was an interesting and creative afternoon. Bravo, Marianna!
