Mountain Studio Tour Features Art in Natural Settings

Cheshes

Marlyn Cheshes began her art career late, but once she began in earnest at age 40, she put heart and soul into her newfound passion. Having dabbled in art all her life, Marlyn went back to art school when her children started college, having been a nurse for 20 years while her husband was an ambassador around the world. Today, Marlyn has pieces in several museums and is highly regarded for her sculpture, painting and photography.

 

After following her husband in his exotic postings in far-flung places, Marlyn says she selected where they retired, and she chose Nederland. Their home includes a spacious, sunlit studio that spills into the yard, and a Japanese garden. The effect of sculpture in the woods is something Marlyn longed to create in her travels. Her subjects include dance photography, the Holocaust, Ground Zero, Alice in Wonderland, Nudes, and Europe.

On Sunday, July 31, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, Marlyn opens her studio to the community she has come to call home. Marlyn, Martin and their therapy dog Mei Ling can frequently be found attending cultural arts events at the Boulder JCC, and the Boulder Jewish Film Festival.
