Virginia Mack—Guest Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for February 2015: “Splash: Images of Morro Bay”

A Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, February 13th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Virginia Mack
Virginia Mack is a native Californian. She grew up in the Bay Area. She has been exploring and savoring the wild lands of the state throughout her life and has been living on the Central Coast for over 12 years. She is a part-time instructor at both Allan Hancock College and Cuesta College in the Fine Arts departments.

Virginia works primarily in watercolors and mixed media and is a colorist at heart. She builds most of her pieces in a wet-on-wet process (wet watercolor paints on wet watercolor paper) resolving the pieces as the paper slowly dries. She creates the forms with rich colors playing those against contrasting colors thereby subduing them while preserving their presence in layers of color. She often mixes the watercolor process with the use of colored pencils, pastel, charcoal, and pencil. Virginia lives in Atascadero, California and shows her work statewide.
