Marjorie is an active member and past president of the Valley Art Association. She is also a certified member of The Maryland Society of Portrait Painters and the CIVA. She is a juried member of The Oil Painters of America and has been invited to join the prestigious Charcoal Club of Baltimore, Maryland.
