“THE MARBLING GROUP” – PAPER ART EXHIBITION – TALK & DEMO – MHS

Milton Historical Society, in collaboration with 205 Lavinia, announces a teacher-student art exhibition, The Marbling Group. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, June 26. Accomplished musician Jimmy Keane will be playing instrumental finger-style guitar for entertainment during the reception.

Diane Maurer will give a talk and demonstration on fancy watercoloring marbling and a book signing from 7 to 8 p.m., Thursday, June 25, for her republished book, “Ultimate Marbling Handbook.” Both events will be held at the Milton Historical Society, 210 Union St. in Milton.

In November, Maurer offered two workshops: Traditional Watercoloring Marbling and Drawing Designs in Color Paste. The enthusiasm of the 11 participants inspired Jeanie Greenhaugh to turn her antiquated photographic darkroom into a marbling studio to incorporate the pieces from the workshop in an exhibition.

For the last few months the group has been creating art pieces from paper, which include a faux collage of one of the stained glass windows at the Milton Historical Society, marbling on silk scarves, collages on boxes, doilies, greeting cards, marbling on wood, slate, framing and reproducing the marbling, and paste paper on canvases. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind design.

The exhibit will also display Maurer’s beautiful, exclusive line of creations which marbling, paste paper notecards, silk scarves, original framed marbling and paper paste collages.

Maurer’s marbling art has been exhibited throughout the world. Her work is represented in many museums and libraries. Commissions include designs for Godiva Chocolates, The White House and numerous book publishers. She has taught marbling throughout the United States and made guest appearances on several television shows including “Martha Stewart Living.” She is the author of 13 books about paper art and collage.

Many of these items will be available for purchase. The exhibit will run through July 24. For more information, go to http://www.205lavinia.com
