May 6- June 16"A New/Old Place" Paintings by Marilyn Cvitanic
Although the artist has lived in New York for the better part of the past 25 years or so, her California roots run deep. As she acknowledges, "No matter where, or how far I travel or how long I have been gone, the colors of home are indelibly ingrained in memory." This colorful series of abstract images draws heavily on the light, air and foliage of her native California.
She has recently returned to San Marino where her family has lived for over 40 years. She is a graduate of San Marino High School.
