Art League History

A called meeting of interested persons met in 1964 for the purpose of organizing an Art League in Marlin.  Frances Burks and Virginia Walters served as Chairperson and Secretary respectively.

In December of that same year, a survey was made of local talent.  With the help of Rev. H.B. Streater, an Art Show was sponsored by the 12 charter members of the Marlin Art League.  Arrangements for the show were made by Norma Scheiblich and Frances Burks.  Approximately 120 paintings and drawings were placed on display in the Presbyterian Educational Building.
