Arline Murphy

As both of my parents were artists, the whole family was busy painting at an early age and they are busy painting and entering shows and competitions even to this day. Our children discovered the joy of creating art too and have entered their creations of artistic photography, silver jewelry and painting in many shows.

After I ended my teaching career in science and chemistry and the children grew up and began careers of their own I had time to take more art and art history courses, work as a museum docent and enter juried shows. I also researched pre-Columbian art and wrote a book about this art and the people who produced it that has been published as a manual for the museum and students in high school and college.

My art, mainly in water media has been accepted in juried shows in Texas, Florida, South Carolina and Virginia. I was juried into a gallery in Columbia South Carolina that included a studio, and a gallery-shop in Charleston South Carolina. I have been juried into shows in Charlottesville and the Virginia Watercolor Society and am a juried member of the Bon Air Artists Association and the Uptown Gallery.
