    Artists
    Jeanne Marie Blongiewicz
    Ann Morrill

    One common thread of this exhibit is the artists have all been students of Margo Pullman. They have studied painting in her West Newbury studio, working in the medium of their choice.

    Another common thread is the hours of effort each artist has made to develop their techniques, color palette and expressive brush strokes. Their individual style radiates with each pie
    ce.


    (If you are interested in purchasing a piece or have a question, please contact Margo Pullman at the number provided in the introductory note to the exhibit)
