May 2018 Resident On Display: Marjorie Anderson

Marjorie Terburg Anderson is a signature member of the Utah Watercolor Society, has served on the board, and exhibited in juried shows as well as state and county fairs and the Murray City Juried Art Exhibit. She has studied with many local and national professionals, and graduated from BYU with a BS in Education.

Marjorie’s interest in art began by watching her mother, a ‘fine china’ artist and instructor. However, she didn’t begin painting in earnest until most of her children were grown. In 1980, Marjorie created, produced, and sold a children’s game, “Choose a Way to Happiness”. Connie Neiman was the artist for the game board. This adventure triggered Marjorie’s further interest in art, which led to creating other children’s products. In 1989, she began painting watercolors exclusively, which she loves for all the wonderful and exciting reasons every watercolorist knows.

In 1994, her painting “House on Cherry Street” was selected by Murray City to be presented by Mayor Lynn Pett to Dr. Po-Ya Chang, Mayor of Murray’s sister city, Chia-Yi, Taiwan.
