Gaslight Art Colony is dedicated to broadening an appreciation of the Arts by providing opportunities that promote awareness, participation and understanding through fine arts exhibitions, classes and workshops.

Doris J. Murphy

Gaslight Art Colony invites you to attend our next gallery opening which features a tribute to Doris Murphy, one of the original members of the Marshall Art League. We will be exhibiting several of her paintings along with artwork from other original members. The exhibit starts Saturday, April 16th with a reception from 6:00-9:00. Doris J. Murphy grew up in Bloomington, IN. She made Marshall her hometown in 1954. Her creativity began at a young age. She often mentioned how much she enjoyed coloring and drawing in grade school. She had a flair for interior decorating and fashion but her love of oil painting became a lifelong passion.
