OLD SAYBROOK — Marshview Gallery will hosts works by the October Artist of the Month, Marilyn Malcarne through Oct. 31.
Malcarne spent 39 years of her career in the classroom teaching art education. Her experience teaching different levels gave her a multimedia platform for her own art work.
She is a certified Milliner having studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in N.Y. She creates her millinery with handmade felts, using the wet felting method. She is also a polymer clay artist. Her main focus in this medium is jewelry making. Painting, clothing design, glass fusing, murals, cement and mosaics are but a few of the mediums that she has worked with. She is on a constant quest to experiment and create with all types of materials.
In her spare time, Marilyn is a mother of three, grandmother of two, Public Relations Officer and photographer for the Deep River Fire Department, marching instructor for the Deep River Junior Ancient Fife and Drum Corps and when time permits, gives classes at her studio.
