In her vintage room...

Art Night Schenectady’s Mission

Art Night aims to introduce a wider audience to the unique vitality of the Arts, restaurants, and businesses that Schenectady has to offer. “Art Night” promotes interest in the arts by making it accessible, thereby strengthening the arts and business communities in Schenectady.

My friend, collage artist Marilyn Rock, was one of the participating artists at last Friday's Art Night Schenectady, and I was so excited to see her incredible collage art on display along with so many other talented artists in our area. Above are some amazing fabric and mixed media greeting cards that I purchased from Marilyn that night. After I had left, I wished I had taken a photo of her work on display. Among her many altered art pieces, Marilyn makes the most amazing altered birdhouses, and I would have liked to show one here.

In addition to being one of the most talented collage artists I know, she also teaches classes, and I've never met a more nurturing and inspiring soul. She has an amazing talent for helping new artists find their creative voices.

Her website --, is new, so I encourage you to stop there periodically as she adds artistic inspiration!

Kerri! You are the BEST! I just had some time,here, at home to treat myself to your Blog! It really nurtures and inspires me! I am overwhelmed and so moved by you putting pictures of my cards and your lovely words of support! Thank you SO much! It was wonderful to see you at Art Night and if I didn't sell a thing, it wouldn't have mattered. I have a friend in you; and that makes me one rich woman! Thank you!
