Steubenville Art Association Artist Marilyn McCain artwork at Fort Steuben Visitor Center

The artwork of Marilyn McCain,  featured artist from The Steubenville Art Association for the month of October, is now on display at the Steubenville/Fort Steuben Visitor Center.

Marilyn started drawing when she was 3 years old and has never stopped.

With 70 years of experience making art work, she spent nearly three decades in the public school system at the elementary level teaching children art.  She still does mixed media artwork daily – primarily drawing and sculptures.  

Marilyn is a lifelong horse lover, and has many pieces depicting this subject.  She has studied equine form and personality for many years, making it a specialty.  She says she will always cherish the memory of her big Palomino who she trained and who carried her faithfully for twenty years.

Her artwork is lovely.  The display is open the same hours as the Visitor Center, Monday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm, and Sundays 11am to 4pm.  Be sure to stop by and view this display, you will not regret it!

Below are two of Marilyn’s works: “Horse Heaven” an 18×24 pen and colored pencil drawing of two black Friesian Stallions. And, “A Drinker of the Wind and his Master”, a 16×20 drawing done in a dot-by-dot style in pen, overlaid with a variety of colored pencil tones.
