Colonial Beach Art Walk

Posted on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 1:28 pm

Eclectic is the best way to describe the various artists in Colonial Beach’s May Second Friday Art Walk. At the opening reception on Friday, May 10, the downtown area was full of art fans enjoying the beautiful weather and the art of multiple, talented artists.

From the vivacious Vicki Marckel at Artists’ Alliance at the JarrettThor Gallery to the soft spoken, yet amazing Andrea Clement at the Potomac River Fisheries Commission, you could not ask for a more well rounded show. Also showcased were Sharon Morris’ hugely popular Chubby Chicks and Joyce Reid’s delightful glass art pieces.

Marckel presented her show, Left Behind, based on a painting that started as a photograph her brother took of boats that were left behind. This led to her exploring other articles left behind whether on purpose or by accident and their interplay with their surroundings.

One particular piece of an abandoned bicycle in Amsterdam shows off Marckel’s work with light and depth as you can practically feel the water lapping behind the bicycle.
