Junior Artist Opening – Marlaina MacDonald
June 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us this Saturday, June 26th from 1pm-3pm for a Junior Artist Opening in the Greenhouse! Regular admission prices apply, tickets can be purchased on our website. Meet our newest Junior Artist, Marlaina MacDonald and be the first to purchase one of her stunning works of art! RWPBC will be reselling some works we have purchased and Marlaina will be bringing additional works to display/sell.
Marlaina MacDonald is 16 years old, lives in Providence, and attends Classical High School.
Her love of art was born out of her first box of 64 Crayola Crayons Fun Box with Built-in Sharpener and grew from many hours of driveway chalk masterpieces. Today she works in watercolor, acrylic, and ink. Her artwork is an outlet for her feelings and perspectives, and she draws inspiration from fantasy.
