Description

If you have missed getting out and about to art shows and festivals, the Studios of Cocoa Beach invites you to visit their gallery where you can comfortably and safely view the work of 30 local artists.  In October their Artist of the Month is Marsha Q. Houck of Cocoa Beach. Her award winning paintings will be on display all month and one of her art works will be the prize in the monthly free art giveaway.

Following a busy career in nursing, Marsha finally had time to pursue a love of art.  She made the most of opportunities to take lessons with established artists as well as studying via instructional tapes.  She joined the Studios of Cocoa Beach as a volunteer hoping to learn more from access to the resident artists. They convinced her to join them and share her talent with the public.  Her paintings in acrylics, oils, and mixed media are often inspired by photos taken on the beach or from family property in the Low Country of South Carolina.

Marsha says that she has found two things to be constant as she learns and grows as an artist.  “The first is the joy I experience when creating a new work of art.  The second is the friendships formed when meeting and working with other artists who share that joy.”

A gift pack of note cards featuring Marsha’s  painting “”Day is Done” will be the prize in the Studio’s October Art Giveaway.  You can enter this free drawing in person or click on the QR code displayed in the Studios window.  At this time, the Studios of Cocoa Beach is open for limited hours, Wednesday and Thursday 10:30 am to 3:30 pm and Friday and Saturday 10:30am to 8:00 pm and by appointment.  Hours are subject to change.  Call 321-613-3480 for updated hours or to schedule an appointment.  You can view profiles of the Studios artists, see more views of Marsha’s work, and learn about this non-profit gallery at www.studiosofcocoabeach.org.
