The following is for a series of profiles of notable Fullertonians (past and present) that I am writing for the Fullerton College Centennial exhibit.  To share your story, visit

Marjorie Kerr took art classes at Fullerton College starting in the 1960s, and began doing abstract paintings.  Along with Florence Arnold, she helped start the first Night in Fullerton Celebration.   Since then, she has been actively involved in the Fullerton art scene, showing her works at Common Ground and Edge galleries in the 1980s, and more recently at The Muckenthaler Cultural Center and Hibbleton Gallery.  Marjorie has also done public art commissions in Fullerton for the Fullerton Museum Center and the Public Library.  In the late 1980s and early 1990s, she participated in the International Cartoon Symposium.  She is still an active artist, and sometimes exhibits with a group of friends called The Bloody Marys.  

This is an interview I did with Marjorie in her Fullerton studio.
