Guest Speaker: Marjolyn Van Der Hart
Marjolyn is the daughter of an artist, whose passion for the ability to be free from the constraints of a corporate path inspired Marjolyn to follow a similar career. She completed a B.A.(Honours), studying Mass Communications at Carleton University, followed by a B.F.A. at Ringling School of Art and Design in Florida. As well, she studied in New York City at the New York Studio Residency Program, which was affiliated with the Parson’s School of Art in the 90’s.
Marjolyn has exhibited for over 20 years in Florida, New York City, Washington D.C., Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Connecticut, in Ontario at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition and the McMichael Art Gallery and has participated in various one person and juried group shows in both Canada and US. Her paintings are part of the collections of Cantox Health Services, CN Rail Ltd, Hurley Corporation, Lederer Leader Services, Rogers Communications, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Ernst and Young, IBM, Merrill Lynch, Bell Canada, as well as private collections throughout Europe and North America.
Marjolyn currently lives in Toronto with her husband and children and travels extensively throughout the USA showing her work at highly competitive juried art fairs. Her narrative impressionistic paintings mark a moment of time through the use of texture, colour, and contrasts of light. She is represented by Petroff Gallery and Wall Space Gallery in Toronto. Her work has won several awards and has been shown at Affordable Art Fairs in New York City and Los Angeles.
