Gloucester Daily Times, Mass.

May 29--Marilyn Swift, a veteran plein air artist, currently has an exhibition of 19 new watercolor paintings depicting Cape Ann scenes on display at the North Shore Arts Association.

Swift, who has resided and painted on Cape Ann for the past four decades, continues to be inspired by her island surroundings. Among her works created this spring are two Wingaersheek Beach watercolors.

The public is invited to a free artist reception on the closing day of the show on Sunday, June 1, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the association's galleries at 1 Pirates Lane in Gloucester.

"I paint because that's the way I communicate. I can't find words as easily as I can find colors and shapes," said the East Gloucester artist.

She wants to share her vivid visual experiences with others.

"Through the spontaneity that the watercolor medium provides, the artist likes to share visually her joyful response to reflected light from a boat moored at Lane's Cove, or the chill of a cold breeze blowing over windswept rocks along the Back Shore," according to a press release.
