Birch Grove, By Marcia Crumley

Marcia Crumley is a Boston-based artist known for infusing bold and unexpected colors into her colorful, contemporary landscapes. She works primarily in acrylics, exploiting their saturated hues to full advantage. Her landscapes capture the spirit and mood of New England scenery through a lush palette and rich textures.

She says of her work: My paintings honor nature’s “sacred spaces,” celebrating the beauty we all stand to lose. I paint unspoiled places, with no human presence, and draw the viewer’s attention to the vital energy that surrounds tree and plant life and that emanates from the water and air needed to support life on earth.

Marcia studied painting at Massachusetts College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She was named one of “five standout artists to keep your eye on” by Maine Home + Design in September of 2017.  She is a member of the SoWa Artists Guild and the Newton Art Association, and has participated in numerous local, regional, and national juried exhibitions.
