Fishing Gear is Art to Gloucester Artist
January 14, 2015
Gloucester Times: In the hands of artist Jeffrey Marshall, the twisted flotsam of a historic seaport becomes works of art. Marshall’s creations have caught the attention of Cape Ann Museum, which will present “Knots,” a selection of grease pencil drawings and oil paintings by the artist who now calls Gloucester home. The series will be on view in the museum’s lobby Thursday, Jan. 15, through March 15.
Raised in Manhattan, Marshall left the city to attend Cornell University in Ithica, NY, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts ibn painting in 1991. He earned a Master of Fine Arts in painting and printmaking in 2000 from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Marshall also worked for seven years in New Orleans’ public school, as part of Teach For America.
