Artist of the Month: Muriel Musarra

I’ve always enjoyed art, art shows and museums, and have always wanted to paint. After moving to the Three Village area over 40 years ago – it inspired me to paint by being surrounded by this beautiful picturesque area.  So, about 30 years ago I began painting by taking an adult education watercolor class at Ward Melville HS, then went on to take classes at Suffolk County Community College, Stony Brook University, Huntington Art League and Islip Art Museum and have taken many other art classes and workshops.

I’ve painted and studied for many years with Harriet Christman and the North Shore Watercolor Society and spent many years studying and painting in oil and doing mono prints with Ann Tuttle. I paint in watercolor, oil and acrylic and I also enjoy doing mono prints.  Presently, I belong to the South Bay Art Association and PALS (a plein air painting group).  I’ve been in the Neighborhood House art show for over 30 years and have shown at the Gallery North outdoor show for 20 years.  I’ve had my paintings at Christopher Gallery for many years and have been in the Joe Reboli Wet Paint show for the past 12 years.  I’ve been in many juried art shows and have won over 50 awards.
