Meyer Najem Showcase: Marianne Glick’s “Layers & Patterns”

Meyer Najem Showcase: Marianne Glick’s “Layers & Patterns”

Marianne Glick is taking her paintings beyond the usual materials. Her upcoming showcase will display the “Layers and Patterns” she’s been excitedly exploring. 

After retiring in 2005, Marianne became an avid art buyer through eBay. She gravitated towards abstract expressionist pieces and soon amassed an impressive collection. It was her husband who suggested she start painting her own pieces instead of buying. That winter, when the natural world turned bleak and gray, Marianne signed up for her first art class. She started with watercolor but quickly found that acrylic suited her vibrant and bustling style better.  

This past winter, Marianne began experimenting with different supplies. She started painting on wood panels instead of canvas and sticking layers of collage and other mixed media on top. Once dry, an orbital sander thins the collage down and creates “rich, deep layers”. Her bold abstract expressionist style has remained consistent with older works. Expect to see vivid hues, lively subject matter, and highly textured surfaces!

Meet Marianne at her free public reception on Friday, July 29 from 5-8 p.m. in the 2nd Floor Gallery at Meyer Najem, 11787 Lantern Road in Fishers. You can visit the 2nd Floor Gallery Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. You can also purchase her artwork online – click here!
