CREATED. CURATED. COLLECTED.
DARLENE MARWITZ travels with a sketchbook and journal, and continues to be influenced by graduate degrees in historic preservation studies and architecture. Her passion for preserving old buildings (and for honoring the natural environment) is reflected in her current work—inspired by the desert landscape and abandoned adobe structures in Marfa and Far West Texas.
“Recognizing the importance of adobe as an indigenous building material with an ecological footprint is critical in promoting their preservation and restoration. I’ve painted in watercolor most of my life, but only recently started carving and printing designs of local adobes with the goal of fostering an awareness for adobe protection.”
DAVID A. MARWITZ, a hidden poet for more than twenty years, holds the self-declared title of El Poete, the result of many years of communicating with one of his nieces living in Spain. David is a reader and communicator above all else, but also an avid follower of traditional country and western music.
His degree in gerontology and studies in human services prompted interest in multiple social issues at an early age. David has raised funds for the building of a library in Vietnam for the organization, Room to Read. He is a former board member of Lobby for Hope and is an advocate for the plight of the homeless, and of gun safety.
CARLY is their three-legged coonhound rescue with a beautiful “paint job.” She’s still trying to figure out what to do with all the tumble weeds in Far West Texas.
