About Verna Friedman
FRIEDMAN, VERNA - Marlborough MA I paint from life - it can be outside or inside. I look long and hard at relationships before I settle into painting. I'm interested in lines, colors, shapes and their relationships. Then I let the setting and the mood of the day take hold. My emotional state and art experiences dictate the work. This is my joy in painting. Born on a farm in Luxemburg Iowa, Verna earned her BA in Art from Clarke College in Dubuque Iowa; then pursued graduate studies in Painting at Catholic University of America in Washington DC and Mills College in CA. She spent the next ten years teaching Studio Art in prep schools in Maine, New York and Alabama. After teaching, Verna moved to Cardiff Wales UK which later evolved into an import retail/wholesale business based in New York and Vermont. Upon moving to Salem MA in 1996, Verna re-immersed herself in painting and became an artist member of the Marblehead Arts Association, Marblehead MA (serving as President for two years). She moved to Marlborough MA in 2006; became one of the original members of BlueSkies Studios in Hudson and then in 2010 one of the original members of White Rabbit Studios in Marlborough. Verna has been a member of Concord Art since 2007. She was a docent at Danforth Art/Museum and School in Framingham MA for ten years. “Art has always been a passion in my life. Studying art early in life with good teachers awakened sensitivities in all aspects of seeing and observing throughout my years. It has made my life richer and carries me through good times as well as bad times.” email: vfriedman18@gmail.com
