Marjorie Dean Andruk at the Hermitage

November 16, 2018 – March 9, 2019

The Morean and Hermitage Apartment Homes are partnering to bring recognition to our local artists by way of exhibition space. The first floor lobby of the  Hermitage, located two blocks from the Morean, is a beautiful, airy, contemporary space–perfect for showcasing artwork. See Marjorie Dean Andruk’s vibrant paintings at the Hermitage Apartment Homes lobby, located at 151 7th Street S in St. Petersburg.

Marjorie Dean Andruk (1922-2010) was a gifted artist and extraordinary teacher. Her vivid paintings reflect a lively spirit and a passion for her craft. Her work never fails to evoke a response from the viewer, whether by a glimpse of a figure or an object, or through the sheer expression of color and form. For nearly fifteen years, Marge Andruk was a vital member of the Morean family as a longtime member and teacher of the Visual Explorations painting class. Don’t miss this opportunity to view nearly 20 works of art by this Florida treasure.
