The Marcus Dawson Art Exhibit


Marcus Dawson, Leland, NC



Marcus Dawson, a local collage artist that resides in Leland,  is  having his  1st Solo Art Exhibit at the Leland Cultural Arts Center at 1212 Magnolia Village Way. The opening reception and show will be held June 8th from    6:00pm-8:00pm.

Mr. Dawson said, “This event is so incredibly special to me for a couple of reasons. During the pandemic to help cope with all that was going on in the world I began to make hand cut collage art at my kitchen table as a self-care practice. I used old books and magazines that I collected throughout the years to make art that brought me so much joy. After some time, I began to share my collage art online via social media. So many people began to reach out and explain how my art brought them so much happiness.   I specifically use bright and bold colors in my work to evoke feelings of peace and light. We all have experienced heavy times and I wanted the art that I make to be an escape (Even if it’s for a moment) from those times.”

Stop in to the Leland Cultural Arts Center on June 8 and enjoy his work.
