Marjorie’s natural talents (painting and music) were carefully tutored from her earliest years by her famous artist mother Marian Barnett; at the age of eleven she was advanced enough to study at the San Diego Fine Arts Gallery. Concurrently, she was becoming an accomplished pianist. Later, attending La Jolla High School, the University of Washington and Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo), Marjorie won various awards, a scholarship in painting and obtained a California State Teacher’s Credential for both art and music. Travel in Europe and two years with the Army Special Services in Northern Bavaria helped to polish her art techniques and understanding to a fine point. In recent years, she has assumed a triple role in oil paintings: supplementary studying with such internationally known artists as Leon Franks and Bennett Bradbury; as a distinguished practicing painter, and as a successful art instructor in collaboration with her mother. Their classes have been eagerly attended by students young and elderly, from all over California and their Morro Bay Art Gallery-Studio has become a Mecca of attraction for collectors and connoisseurs far and wide. The latter are a dependable barometer of excellence plus investments value in paintings, and realize that in Marjorie Shape they are witnessing the emergence of one of the truly outstanding women artists of our century. Join them in a visit to the Morrow Bay Gallery at Beach Street and Embarcadero and see for yourself….enchantment is contagious. (From Marjorie Sharpe Brochure)
