We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r By Marilyn Brown

Springville residents, Mr. and Mrs. Bill and Marilyn Brown, have collected their paintings for a special showing at the gallery of the Health and Justice Building (100 South University Ave. in Provo) all during the month of September. Marilyn, author of almost twenty Western historical novels, (plus Atlanta Georgia’s publication of Images of America: Provo, and honored by recent Whitney Lifetime Achievement Award) and Bill Brown, Utah County realtor, thespian and past manager of Springville’s Villa Playhouse, have both won awards for their work. They will be honored with a reception for their display on Friday, September 1, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The couple took up painting in their senior years and have been honored with prizes from both St. George and local shows, including the Covey Center. They are excited to share some of their best pieces in this art gallery.

Bill’s early experience with painting was in a scene painting class from the BYU degree in theatre he received in 2002. He adapted his large work for smaller canvases, and has done very well—mainly painting landscapes in Zion National Park and in Hobble Creek Canyon, where they live. Marilyn, who took some art classes in BYU in 1962, mentions that after raising a family of six and publishing so many books, she is thrilled to concentrate on the visual arts again. “It’s a good activity for us to do together. We take trips with our paint supplies and paint outdoors plein air. On each trip we’ve sold some of our paintings.”

One of Marilyn’s paintings was adopted by a national book company, “Goodreads” for one of their medallions. “I felt honored,” Marilyn says. “I hope our Provo and Springville friends will come to see this painting and the others in our show.”
