Marla Morrison is a mixed media artist residing in Texas. For her, exploration of the myriad of art materials and techniques is a major source of inspiration. In her work, she seeks to show beauty through the colors, design, and behaviors of the materials. Marla is a teaching artist for The Fine Art Collective and has been for 20 plus years. Through this opportunity she’s learned scads about art materials and loves sharing that information with others. Her work is in collections throughout the US and in Canada.

The demo will cover some pigment history, color mixing, brush tips and techniques, and watercolor paper. See more of her work via Instagram @marlamorrisonart or her website

Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRIC) is home to the birthplace of the first personal computer and was where a young Bill Gates secured a licensing deal with IBM for Microsoft’s operating system, “Project Chess”. Today, BRIC is a 1.7 million square foot office park with amenities such as cafes, event space, STEM lab, and a wellness center.


It is also the home of some of our PBWS members’ studios! In an ongoing effort to merge technology, innovation and the arts, BRIC has allocated permanent exhibit space to PBWS in one of their many buildings. Our exhibits will hang for a period of 6 months. Therefore, we will have 2 exhibits there per year.
