For this artist’s first ever solo exhibition in a public gallery, we’d say it’s pretty impressive. Your thoughts?

The Art Gallery at the Old Town Hall in in Waterford, Ontario, Canada, is the proud host of Marsha Deans Edgar’s first ever solo exhibition in a public gallery. Seems hard to believe, given the beauty of her skillfully rendered plein air paintings.

Edgars is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, and the paintings exhibited were produced during her travels around the world to places such as Arizona, England, Portugal, and Nova Scotia. “One of my favorite things to do is to paint on location,” she remarks. “You never really understand a place until you get out of your car and walk around.”

There can be little doubt that Edgar’s art career is on an upward trajectory, as she was recently awarded the International Plein Air Painters Award for excellence in watercolor. Her solo exhibition is currently on view through July 20. Let’s show her some love!
