Marilyn Turtz feels a strong kinship with trees and is inspired by the conditions of light that reveal  them. Painting en plein air, she responds to the natural world with nimble spontaneity. Forms emerge and recede in continuous layers of light and atmosphere, crisply articulated by sun or veiled by fog. Turtz loosely orchestrates the movement of colors, textures and shapes to evoke the immediacy of perception, a sense of awe and a connection to the world around her.  

Marilyn Turtz received her MFA from Brooklyn College in 1985, where she studied with such notable artists as Lois Dodd, Phillip Pearlstein and Lennart Anderson. Her BFA, from Pratt Institute was awarded in 1978. Her paintings have been shown in New York City, Long Island, Maine and California. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Heckscher Museum in Huntington and the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook. Turtz has been an Artist in Residence at The Heliker-LaHotan Foundation on Great Cranberry Island, Maine, Weir Farm Trust in Wilton, Ct. and Cummington Community for the Arts in Cummington, Ma. She has received public and corporate commissions from such organizations as Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, the City of Glen Cove and the New York City Arts for Transit, Metropolitan Transit Authority. Turtz lives and works in Glen Cove, New York where she teaches painting.
