“It took me forever to find my Quetzal” Monoprints by Marcy Greene
Due to the July 4th holiday we will be postponing our artist reception to Friday July 12th from 5-7 pm but the art will be on display through all of July.
Marcy Greene’s process of creating art is a mysterious journey. She has come to revel in the wonder of listening in different ways – waiting for an image to reveal itself. Getting it “right” or “beautiful” is never the goal. The Muse is put off by artificial judgments. Creating art is a leap of faith.

Marcy Greene has been living, writing and painting in the Rogue Valley since 1981. Over time, she has come to revel in the wonder of seeing and listening in different ways–waiting for who or what shows up on the page, canvas or boards, to play. “Getting it right”, or “Making it Beautiful” shuts her down. She resorts to trickery; turning an artwork upside down; cutting a poem in half; fooling the ego to get it out of the way. Marcy will use anything at her fingertips; adding layers and layers of color to be scraped off, sanded and repainted. Her goal is to embrace a spirit of playfulness; a space expansiveness, no judgement, a place of no mistakes. You can find more of her artwork and studio space at The Ashland Art Center.
