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.
