December 17, 2013 through January 30, 2014 -- Malletts Creek Branch: Exhibits
The paintings in Marcelle Gray's exhibit focus on simple objects of the home as a way of exploring the effects of light on color and form. Sometimes there are figures in the paintings, but the focus is always on the light and how it transforms everyday objects. The paintings of this exhibit are done in watercolor, oil, and pastel.
Marcelle Gray grew up in Southern California and graduated from UCLA. After moving to Ann Arbor, she received a second B.A. from Eastern Michigan University in Art. Marcelle has taught at the Ann Arbor “Y”, the Art Center and other community organizations. She has exhibited her work locally with Ann Arbor Women Artists and Ann Arbor Area Pastelists.

Much of Marcelle’s work has been an exploration of people and places encountered while traveling, especially in Guatemala.
