The Joy Art Can Bring: A Memorial Tribute to Donna Marsh 

Cortland Arts Connect invites the community to view a Memorial Tribute to Donna Marsh "The Joy Art Can Bring."  The exhibit will be held in the first floor Art Gallery of the McNeil Building, 19 Main Street, Cortland, April 1st through May 31st. The McNeil Gallery is open to the public during regular business hours.

The Groton Art Class in conjunction with the Picture House is sponsoring the exhibit of Donna Marsh’s watercolors and accompanying paintings along with photos by her extended family of fellow artists at the McNeil Gallery. The exhibit can be viewed through the months of April and May.  A reception will be held from 5 pm to 6:30 pm on First Friday, May 6.  Donna passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, February 5, 2022.

Donna had been a student of local artist David Beale for around twenty years and participated in many of his classes and workshops.  In recent years she had been a member of the Groton Art Class taught by Beale. Her paintings lovingly reflect her interests – family, local scenes, flowers and travel. 

In her honor, the Groton Art Class artists have painted a series of paintings of Haiti that will be displayed along with 15 of Donna’s watercolors.  Donna supported the efforts of Caring Hearts for Central Haiti with donations to help Haitian children.  For anyone wishing to donate in her memory, the address is  P.O. box 5348, Cortland, NY 13045.
