A Traveling Exhibit of 114 Art Quilts – The strong visual impact of this exhibit is due to the limited color palette (lime and black), and interesting theme (WICKED). Some entrants were influenced by the Broadway hit musical, some by the Wizard of Oz, and some are personal interpretations of the word “wicked”. The quilts are made entirely from 100% hand dyed suede-look cotton from Cherrywood Fabrics, excluding embellishments. Select quilts were displayed at The Gershwin Theater in NYC – home of “WICKED™”.

by Maggie Bice & Anna Marie DeMio Dowen
A new show of acrylic and pastel paintings celebrating the art of two women who happen to be long-time friends. Maggie Bice and Anna Marie DeMio Dowen first met twenty-four years ago, and have forged over time a full appreciation, support and exploration of the complexities of artistic development, along with their own personal artistic endeavors. Many works of art have been created over the years, with recent pieces in this upcoming exhibit representing the natural flow of time, and the commitment to art that has run through, and enriched, each of their lives. The pieces to be exhibited are landscapes, nature studies and figurative work interpreting the passage of time in captured moments.
