Mourning The Loss of Our Friend
August 19, 2020, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of our friend, colleague and master painter Lynn Maderich. Though she has passed on, her works still live on to inspire and amaze us at her ability to capture and transform her chosen subjects into images that were truly visionary. Images that transport us to a place of her choosing; her ability to capture light and combine the elements of the story, and a superior vision of composition, all come together to bring her paintings to life. Lynn was also a valued member of The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art. She will be missed as an instructor and mentor to young and upcoming artists as well as those wishing to learn The Atelier method of creating fine art pieces, and they are many in number. She helped guide the growth and direction of The Atelier as a productive member and secretary on The Atelier Board of Directors.
We mourn the loss of our friend and the world has grown a bit dimmer with her passing, for she was truly a light that shone within the forest.
As a result of Lynn’s generous contribution and at her request, The Atelier has set up a scholarship in her name. If you would like to make a donation, please go to: “The Lynn Maderich Scholarship For Women Artists Overcoming Adversity.” Here is a link to Lynn’s In Memoriam on The Atelier’s website.
