Exquisite watercolor pieces by artist and 40-year Marathon resident Lynn Voit will be on display in the gallery of Marathon Community Theatre throughout its current main-stage run of “Sunset Village.” Beginning Thursday, Jan. 13, more than 100 pieces, including originals and giclees on watercolor paper and gallery wrapped canvas, will be available for viewing and purchase by MCT patrons.

As an ex-diver and pilot, Voit’s watercolor work captures her love of Keys waters and skies. Her work currently hangs in the Florida Keys Steak and Lobster House, the new Fishermen’s Hospital, and many private collections.

Through Voit’s generous offer, 100% of the artwork sales throughout the show will go directly to benefit the nonprofit theatre. In addition, Voit will host a Meet the Artist event on Monday, Jan. 17 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. More information about Voit’s background and work is at www.lynnvoit.com.
