Collectors Say:

I just wanted to let you know that my aunt and uncle absolutely loved the painting which was a gift for their 50th wedding anniversary. I saw it in person to give it to them  and was also amazed by how gorgeous it is. Thank you again! It has found a good home.


Educated at Dartmouth College and Northwestern University, Marvin Soroos is a retired professor of international relations and global environmental politics at North Carolina State University. He divides his time between Raleigh, North Carolina, and his childhood home in Missoula, Montana. The subjects of his paintings are drawn from the Big Sky country of Montana and rural North Carolina, and from his extensive travels both within the United States and abroad. His international travels have taken him through much of Western Europe, including the British Isles and Scandinavia, Russia and eastern Europe, Central and South America, southern and eastern Asia, the Persian Gulf region, and Australia. He has been a visiting professor at universities in Finland and Bulgaria, and at Williams College in western Massachusetts. 
Marvin's paintings have been displayed in juried shows and solo and group exhibitions in North Carolina, Montana, Wyoming, and Kansas.  They have also been displayed in galleries in Raleigh, Missoula, Omaha, and Cody, Wyoming. His scenes of rural North Carolina have won several awards in the combined amateur painting division at the North Carolina State Fair, including an Agricultural Commissioner’s Purchase Award.
 His paintings were featured in an article, “Global Palette:  the Art of Marvin Soroos,” in the spring 2015 issue of the magazine Distinctly Montana.   His most recent exhibition was at Bernice's Bakery in Missoula during August 2018 (see photo below).
