We delve into the world of Eastport Artist Margie Guyot in an exhibition brimming with creative inspirations in a range of flamboyant still lives based on found items of interest. Margie loves working with highly patterned and saturated colored  paintings, challenge herself to represent the textures and colors that draw her eye. From molded glass objects, plants, shells, feathers, highly patterned table cloths and more, Margie's work  is of the highest caliber and the springing board for rich conversations.
