Residing in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, artist Marjorie Ball is particularly drawn to scenes that depict the light and forms of New England. "My painting subjects are the afternoon sun as it warms up the side of a white home, the lights of a city, the feeling of the swoop of the highway curving past homes lined up along its edge. A quiet place like a marsh at midday becomes meditation on our connection to nature. The goal of my landscapes is to share the spark of recognition of and connection to familiar places. They are universal" says Ball of her work.
With a BFA from Syracuse University, Ms. Balls work has won numerous awards and is in collections across the country.
