  • Exit Through the Gift Shop
    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    When British stencil artist Banksy traveled to Los Angeles to work, he came across obscure French filmmaker Thierry Guetta and his badly organized collection of videotapes involving the activities of graffiti artists. Inspired, Banksy assembled them with new footage to create this talked-about documentary, and the result is a mind-boggling and odd film (so strange as to be thought a hoax by some) about outsider artists and the definition of art itself.

Featured Artist Friday: Marlene Delugish

Marlene Delugish“I studied art part-time at Santa Monica College while working full-time in a law office in Century City, taking as many art classes as my work schedule allowed. My first art class was an introduction to drawing using dry pastels.  I fell in love with the luxurious colors of this medium, which enabled me to change the interplay and intensity of colors on a variety of surfaces. After retiring in 1995 and moving to the South Bay area, I became interested in painting as more than a hobby,  and continued my art education by studying with regional artists and attending painting seminars and workshops. I now paint in pastels, mixed media and acrylics, depending on the tone, mood and subject matter of my paintings.

Marlene Delugish - “Foxy” - Mixed Media on Canvas - 12x16 in.In 2002, my artistic interests expanded into the three dimensional art form of fused and dichroic glass, and I now divide my art endeavors  between painting and creating dichroic jewelry and unique fused glass plates and bowls.

Marlene Delugish - ”Relish Dish” - 9 1/2 in. - Black iridescent glass with dichroric glass accents (Fused)

I am a member of the Palos Verdes Art Center (PVAC), currently Membership Chair and Malaga Cove Chair of the Peninsula Artists Group at PVAC, past President of PVAC Artists (PVACA), and currently Treasurer of PVACA.  I am past Membership Chair of the Southern California Pastel Society. I have exhibited at (and have been represented by) the Masters Marketplace in San Juan Capistrano, CA. For seven years, I was a juried member of The Artists Studio Gallery at PVAC. I currently exhibit at the Malaga Cove lawn shows and at other outdoor art shows throughout Los Angeles County.  I work out of my home studio in Rolling Hills Estates, CA, where I shares space with my dogs.

Marlene Delugish - “Preening Parrot” - Pastels on Paper - 11x14 in.My art reflects my appreciation for the love I receive from the animals who are my friends, and for those animals I can only admire from afar. My enthusiasm for all the beauties and bounties of nature are also an important part of my oeuvre. I paint realistic life forms, as well as whimsical ones. My fascination with color and creation have taken me to new artistic heights.”
