Pensacola is a vibrant, creative, artistic and ever changing city that loves to celebrate. With spring just around the corner, new life and creativity is abundant. Wesley Haven Villa is excited to have two gifted artists living among us: Gary Adamson and Marian Guthrie.
Marian Guthrie grew up in Pensacola then moved away after she married, and later on returned to her hometown. Marian inherited her mother’s love of art early on and still speaks of it with love and reverence. Some of the mediums that she used in her work were oil, acrylic and watercolors. She has been featured in magazines and a local art gallery (Quayside Art Gallery). One of her paintings was purchased by Wesley Haven long before she became a resident and is displayed in our Theater room for all to enjoy.
Marion has an adopted son and has one biological daughter, and is also proud of her two adult grandchildren, Caleb, a percussionist living in Georgia, and Matthew, a safety engineer living in Texas.
Gary Adamson was born and raised in Springfield, MO. He has been interested in art all of his life as he is constantly creating and sketching.
He has been featured at the art museum in Springfield, MO, as well as various galleries in St. Louis, MO, Albuquerque, NM, and Eureka Springs, AR. In addition to painting and cartooning, he has also done sculpture pieces. Gary is also a proud member of the National Cartoonist’s Society.
He graduated from Drury College in Springfield, MO, and worked as a journalist at the Springfield News-Leader newspaper. He was the magazine editor for Falstaff Brewing Company and Optimist International, based in St. Louis, MO.
It is a pleasure knowing that two of the finest artists Pensacola has to offer are treasures residing at Wesley Haven Villa! If you would like to make Wesley Haven Villa your home for assisted living or independent living in Pensacola, contact us today for pricing and availability.
