May Art In The Afternoon

The Art of Found Objects
with Marge Clancy

Marge_Clancy_Poster 01

MargeDiscover how simple items from nature can become works of art. Driftwood or leaves can become her canvas. Since the ’70’s Marge has created the costumes for High School, Community Theater and Riverside Theater productions. The plays include Guys & Dolls, Bus Stop, Naughty Marietta and many more. A backdrop she made for the band, Dogs On Skis, is in Okoboji Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now, her talents have turned toward her natural art.
