Margie Prim

Margie Prim began her art career in the 1960s in Oklahoma by taking painting lessons. She laid her brushes down until the early 1990s when she again took lessons from Walt Lewis and at the Stan Nossett Art School. Margie continued her studies through her memberships in the Minnetrista Art Guild and the Indiana Plein Air Painters. Where many artists work from sketches or photographs in the comfort of their studio, plein air painters specifically work outside, on location, to create their paintings Prim is adept in both methods.

Margie began entering juried exhibitions, and has shown in the Minnetrista Annual, the Richmond Art Museum Annual, Indiana State Fair, the Women’s Commission Art Exhibit, Redtail Conservancy Open Spaces Exhibit, and the Hoosier Salon. She has won awards at several exhibits and held several one woman exhibits in the region. Her plein air work was included in the Indiana Waterways Project in 2002.
