From early on Layne Marholin knew that making art would be a path she would follow. Layne is a graduate of the Hartford Art School of the University of Hartford and has been practicing the canvas ever since. Her subjects vary and she has been told that they depict a dialogue. All things encountered in her life are absorbed, stored and will often surface in a painting. Feeling for her subject is foremost or it is simply paint on a surface.
Layne holds memberships in the following, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, Connecticut Watercolor Society, New Haven Paint & Clay, Essex Art Association, Guilford Art League and Mystic Museum of Art.
Layne’s work has been included in numerous museum and art institution exhibits including, The Wadsworth Art Museum, Hartford, Ct., The Berkshire Art Museum, Pittsfield, Ma., The Slater Museum, Norwich, Ct., Fairfield University, Fairfield Ct., The New Britain Museum, New Britain, Ct., The John Slade Ely House New Haven, Ct., George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, Springfield Ma., and Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, CT.
