                  Marcia Molnar is best known for work representing her life in Arizona, where she has lived for the past 30 years. Not limited to any one subject matter, her first paintings were portraits influenced by the Wyeth family and Mary Cassatt. In 2000 she began to experiment with other subjects as grand as a sunset in Sedona to the simplicity of pears on a shelf, influenced by Ed Mell, George O’Keffee and Maynard Dixon.

                  Marcia says of her style-
                  “It’s important that my work reflect who I am and what I love. I will always be sitting firmly on the fence between contemporary and traditional realism. It would be nice if I could just settle into a box where people knew what to expect from me and it probably would make things easier for my husband, but what fun would that be? I love the rythm of paint on a canvas too much to give in to tight realism and when I simplify things I begin to miss the beautiful details I find in the world around me.”

                  Marcia’s father, Jay Schmidt, was an artist and a gallery owner. He started a small gallery in Carmel, CA, The New Masters Gallery, which Bill Hill took over and made it into what it is today. Her brothers, Tim Schmidt and Brad Schmidt are artists as is her husband, George Molnar.

                          To our Valued Customers

                           

                          During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty.  We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family.  We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times.  We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time.  Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.

                          Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public.  We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend.  Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts.  Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate.  If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out.  Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
