Marilyn Ostrich was a student and friend of Henry
Gasser in NJ. She attended Gasser's art classes, and was awarded
and a member of the American Pastel Society. This artist has
been exhibited in galleries owned by New Jersey's major corporations.
Her last exhibit prior to her death was at Schering Plough Gallery in
Kennelworth, NJ. Ostrich saw this group of Chinese children
waiting for a school bus, and hurried to paint it. Like her mentor,
Ostrich took her scenes from everyday life, such as people on the
streets of New York City, on beaches and in parks.
