Marlene Schwalm is the featured artist for the March and April, showing at The Muskogee Art Guild Gallery.
Schwalm lives in Wagoner and originally is from Midland, Mich. She moved to Oklahoma 30 years ago. Her work can also be seen on the wall of paintings on Main Street in Wagoner.
She has been on the board of directors of the Art Guild for several years, served as president in 2010, and is active in the day to day operation.
Schwalm has been painting most of her life, she said in a media release.
“I enjoy working in oils and acrylics,” Schwalm said in the release. “I took art classes in high school and have attended many work shops and classes through the years.”
Schwalm said she enters the two art shows and sales put on annually by the Muskogee Art Guild, and enters other art shows in Green Country.
“This week I am preparing paintings to enter into the judged art show at the Arrowhead Mall the first week of April,” she said in the release.
