Art in the Lobby: Marty Plevel

Join us Saturday, January 13th from 6-8pm to welcome Marty Plevel and her artwork in the Hotel Congress Lobby!

From the artist:

Painting, drawing, and other art forms have become a passion; a way for me to be transformed, to express myself, to feel productive, and to keep my creative juices flowing. Most importantly, it feels good to do it – my way. It is more than what meets the eye. 

While most of my visual artwork is in watercolor, most notable my “Garage Series”, I also paint other subjects and do rub-out oil painting and pencil portraits. I paint rugs for homes and offices, teach rug painting to adults, and most recently have been making earrings with repurposed materials. Additionally, I have been a certified feng shui practitioner since 2001.

After retiring from teaching, I have had time and energy to pursue my find art interests. I also became a certified feng shui practitioner to facilitate improvement in the quality and harmony in the lives of others. I use this knowledge to keep working on my own quality of life. Life is good.
