Wellington Art Society artist Marilyn “Bobbin” Salisbury is the current exhibitor at Whole Foods Market in Wellington. The exhibit will be up until the end of December. A reception in her honor will be hosted by Whole Foods Market on Friday, Nov. 30 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. with small bites, wine, live music and door prizes. A $5 donation is requested with all proceeds going to the Wellington Art Society Scholarship Fund.
Originally from New York, Salisbury has a degree in art from Nassau Community College and also studied art at Mallory University. She has attended classes and workshops in New York and Florida. She has painted all her life, first in oil and now in watercolor and acrylics. She loves painting nature, such as flowers, oceans and trees. She enjoys realistic painting but continues to evolve into her style.
Salisbury is a signature member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society. She is also a member of the Sketchbook Project of the Brooklyn Art Museum. One of her sketchbooks led to her creation of “Silly Selma,” a children’s picture book series.
“I frequently use watercolor and am guided by the spontaneity of creating beautiful new color mixes and shapes on the wet paper,” Salisbury said.
