Natural Transitions 
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.
