Vintage Framed MARJORIE SHARPE Original Signed Oil Painting Art FRUIT Still Life

The painting features a fruit still life with bananas, grapes, apples, and a guava over a green background.

Later, attending La Jolla High School, the University of Washington and Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo), Marjorie won various awards, a scholarship in painting and obtained a California State Teacher's Credential for both art and music. Travel in Europe and two years with the Army Special Services in Northern Bavaria helped to polish her art techniques and understanding to a fine point.

She studied with such internationally-known artists as Leon Franks and Bennett Bradbury..." according to the now-closed Pomeroy Art Gallery in Cypress, California. - Info courtesy of Claudette's Vintage on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/claudettesvintage)

The owl is partially glazed in an off-white color on the head and face. The glaze goes all the way down the back side.

Fergus was a known artist and sculptor in Southern California during the 1960s and taught classes in clay figure sculpture for the public. From the Arcadia Tribune, February 2, 1967: "The assemblage of wheel-thrown pots into imaginative figures— a fascinating extension of the pottery media — will be presented by Ellen Fergus. Time permitting, she will also demonstrate clay figure sculpture. A graduate of Chouinard, Mrs. Fergus maintains a studio in Sierra Madre and is an active participant in the annual Sierra Madre Art Fair."

The Chouinard Art Institute of Los Angeles was founded in 1921 by Nelbert Murphy Chouinard, and later with the help of Roy and Walt Disney merged with The Los Angeles Conservatory of Music to become what is now the California Institute of the Arts or CALARTS. Famous alumni of Chouinard include designer Bob Mackie, sculptors Ken Shutt and Noah Purifoy, and painter Millard Sheets. (Wikipedia)
