Marilyn Peretti

Calm for 2020
2020: Gimme Plain Plains

Marilyn Peretti of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, has been artistic since childhood, but seriously painting since 1992. She has taken botanical illustration classes at the Morton Arboretum over the years, and exhibited with the Nature Artists Guild there for 26 years. Her art interests have broadened and she paints in oil with cold wax (is an exhibiting member of Encaustic Art Institute in Santa Fe), as well as acrylic on canvas. In this show she has painted two in the style of the artist, Etel Adnan, a very simplified style, which Marilyn feels expresses what she envisions for this cluttered 2020! These paintings are “Calm for 2020”, and “2020: Gimme Plain Plains”
