Abstract Artistry by Marianne Glick at A to Z Cafe July 1

Get ready to be energized and inspired. From 5:30pm until 6:30pm on Thursday, July 1, 2010 art lovers will gather at the A2Z Café on 96th Street to behold the beautifully abstract, mixed-media paintings of Indianapolis artist, philanthropist and business person, Marianne Glick. With an exhilarating blend of color and texture, Glick’s work is a vivid and personal exploration of the abstract nature of life.

Glick began painting in 2004 in an attempt to fill the cold Winter months with productivity and positivity. Though her green thumb keeps her busy Spring, Summer and Fall, Marianne’s inability to connect with nature during the icy Winter motivated her to create beauty in an entirely new realm. Since then, her paintings have blossomed into brilliant abstract works in water color and acrylic. Each piece exudes both vibrancy and confidence as colors intermingle and the concept of line is challenged. With compositional technique that draws your eye naturally across the canvas, its easy to peer into the cheery heart of this artist as she shares her self through her work.

A philanthropist at heart, Marianne Glick believes strongly in giving back to the community. She has donated paintings and profits from paintings to various Indianapolis nonprofit organizations like the Children’s Bureau of Indiana, Dress For Success, Girls Inc., Habitat for Humanity, Haiti Earthquake Relief, Joy’s House, Make a Wish Fund, Peyton Manning’s Children’s Hospital, Planned Parenthood and more. Her work even hangs in the halls of Ball State University.

In her six years of experience painting, Glick has been accepted into an impressive number of juried competitions sponsored by groups like the Hoosier Salon, California Art Day, Indianapolis Art Center, International Society of Acrylic Painters, Midwest Abstract National Exhibit, Watercolor Society of Indiana and Women’s Works 2010. In addition, Glick has exhibited throughout Indianapolis art galleries like the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis Monthly’s Art House and the Indiana State Museum. Her work is even in high demand out of state, traveling to the Sarasota Art Center, PGA National Members Club, the Coral Springs Museum of Art in Florida, the Old Courthouse Gallery in Woodstock, Illinois and the Learning Art Expo in Pasadena.

A leader in the Indianapolis community, Marianne Glick’s work as philanthropist plays an important role in her art. Her dedication to the Marilyn K. Glick School of Art, an Indianapolis art school and exhibition space located in the outdoor halls of the ARTSPARK of the Indianapolis Art Center in Broad Ripple Village, has been noted. In only a few short years, Marianne Glick has managed to become an integral part of the Indianapolis art community.
