SANTA ANA, Calif. - From now through October 15, John Wayne Airport (JWA) is featuring a collection of Sherry Marger's landscape paintings entitled 'Destination Art' as part of JWA's Community Focus Space Program. The paintings can be viewed on the Departure (upper) Level near the security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

As a studio artist, Marger uses acrylic paints in an impressionistic style to interpret the photographs she has taken on her many travels. While there are many locations depicted in these paintings, the recurrent theme shows how architectural beauty is set in nature. The exhibit is intended to inspire travel and encourage an appreciation of the intriguing and awe-inspiring world we live in.

"What a perfect venue to show Destination Art!" said Sherry Marger. "Imagine yourself at any one of these locations, and then book the trip and hop on a plane."

Born in New York City and raised in New Jersey, Marger received her Bachelor's degree in Art Education and began her career as a junior high school teacher. It wasn't until later in life that she began traveling and painting more seriously. Traveling soon became her inspiration and 'Destination Art' her passion. She currently resides in Newport Beach, and is affiliated with Orange County Fine Arts and Huntington Beach Art League.

Upcoming Community Focus Space Program artists include Carl Lind (October 16 – November 16) and Dori Murnieks (November 17 – December 16). To learn more about JWA's Art Programs, visit
