Urbandale Public Library/Art UP Close 2019

Meet the Artist:  Marcia Leeper

Marcia Leeper will serve as the Urbandale Public Library’s resident artist from September 1 – November 30, and will lead a variety of workshops and presentations for all ages.

Artist Statement

My careers and life experiences have been rich and varied. Each portion of my life has been connected by creativity and teaching. These experiences have included being a professional Girl Scout, a coordinator of staff training at a home for children with disabilities, working at a garden magazine for 20 years, and planning and facilitating presentations in horticulture in many locations in Iowa and around the country.

Now I am recycled and composting beautifully, working in gardens and at a greenhouse in the spring. I can’t wait to see what will be next in this world of art that is emerging for me.

 

Gallery Exhibition

Leeper’s work will be on display in the Urbandale Public Library Art Gallery September 15 – October 31.   Watch the Art Gallery website for more details about a reception with the artist this fall.
