Marsha Winsryg graduated from
Bennington College in 1972, where she studied sculpture with Isaac
Whitkin and earned a B.A. in art. She has lived on Martha’s Vineyard
for over 25 years, and in that time she has developed her own approach
towards depicting the Vineyard landscape in pastel, gouache and egg
tempera. Traveling in Africa and living in Florence, Italy have opened
new ways of working and provided new subjects.
She has shown at
various Vineyard galleries including the Field Gallery and Etherington
Fine Arts, and currently has work at the Sculpin Gallery.
In addition to her art,
Ms. Winsryg has raised three daughters, taught extensively, and is the
Director of a non profit that raises money for an orphanage and center
for disabled children in Zambia. She is part of the puppet troupe
Spindrift Marionettes and directs the West Tisbury Bell Choir.
