Whitehouse To Host Glen Freimark Watercolors
Local artist Glen Freimark is currently exhibiting his paintings at the Whitehouse Village Hall. He works mostly in watercolor and likes its freshness and spontaneity.
Glen was born and raised on a farm in rural Graytown, Ohio, and he tends to gravitate to landscape subjects. “It’s not easy to get the farm boy out of me,” he has said.
He attended Bowling Green State University on a football scholarship while pursuing his degree in business administration with a major in advertising. After receiving his degree, he joined the former DeVilbiss Company, where he held several marketing positions, the most recent as advertising manager. Later, he worked in the printing industry until his retirement.
Glen currently resides in Monclova Township with his wife of 61 years, Marna. They are the parents of three grown children, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
The paintings will be on display until Monday, April 3 during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
