Artist of the Month - December

The Saginaw Charter Township Art In Public Places is proud to present Merry Feith of Saginaw, Michigan, for the featured Artist of the Month for December.

Merry Feith
Merry Feith pronounced (Faith); has been an admirer of the arts ever since she was a little girl in Kindergarten learning to finger paint. For as long as she can remember, her parents encouraged her talent beginning with her first easel at age 5, handcrafted by her father, and later selling colorfully painted homegrown pumpkins at her father’s locally owned flower shop. Merry continued to develop her artistic talents throughout her education and found a passion for using color pencils and acrylics to describe the wonderful colors and themes she imagined as a child.

Every picture Merry draws or paints, evokes her imagination of a simpler time. Each glance tells a different story with elements having significant and special meaning. If you look closely at her paintings, most will have either a couple, a dog, a cat, a lamb, a church, a gazebo, or woodland creatures.

Merry’s artwork has been on display at the following places: Studio 23 in Bay City, Art at The Anderson, established by the Saginaw Arts and Enrichment Commission, Downtown Saginaw Farmer’s Market, New Hope, Wellspring, Wescourt, and a number of local holiday art shows, along with various fundraisers including Can Council, The Eye Ball (S.A.F.E.), The Home Builder’s Association, Mustard Seed, Travis Mills fundraiser, and other various medical and church fundraisers.  Merry’s painting “The Grand Tea Garden” was the cover page to “Addicted To Mackinac Island” facebook page cover as their featured artist of the month. Her work has been featured in the Saginaw News, M-Live and the Bay City Times. She currently sells her work which also includes hand painted Christmas bulbs on Mackinac Island and at the Andersen Enrichment Center in Saginaw, MI. She is currently proud to add Artist of the month at the Saginaw Charter Township Art in Public Places to her accomplishments.

Merry's art exhibit will be shown at the Saginaw Charter Township Hall, 4980 Shattuck Road, Saginaw, Michigan, Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., thru December 29, 2021.  The Township offices will be closed December 23rd & 24th.
