Please join Bella Casa Real Estate Group this Friday June 3rd at our Newberg location for Art Walk. This month we are absolutely thrilled to be featuring local photographer and artist, Marilyn Affolter. We think you’ll agree that her photographs are amazing! Here is a bit about Marilyn, borrowed from her website True Image Photography.
“I came to it later in life; finding out it is never too late to do what you really want to do, what you were meant to do. It seems as if all the years have led to this, taking pictures. There is something magical in making an instant stand still with the press of a button. For a moment, time stops, and you can really see what it there…that life is beautiful.” -Marilyn Affolter
A self taught artist, Marilyn has received numerous awards, including publication in Popular Photography, 2006; finalist in the Smithsonian Photo Contest, 2006; and finalist in the National Geographic International Photo Contest, 2007. Her image “Oregon Storm” was on display in the Smithsonian Institute, July 2007.
On the first Friday of every month the very best of local art is on display – all in one centralized location! You’ll see talent that has been encouraged and developed by our very own landscape – the vineyards, the mountains, the buildings, the people… It’s nothing short of inspiring. And although the art is the reason we gather, it gives an opportunity for tasting fantastic local wines and engaging with others our community. You won’t be disappointed if you do come out for a few hours. You’ll be surprised by how much fun it is and impressed by everything that Yamhill County has to offer. We look forward to meeting you at Bella Casa Real Estate Group!
