Exhibitions by Margaret Rizzio, Warren Seelig and Anna B. McCoy

Dowling Walsh Gallery will host three exhibitions in the month of September by Margaret Rizzio, Warren Seelig and Anna B. McCoy.

Margaret Rizzio: Bird’s Eye View
Rizzio received her Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts from Bennington College in Vermont and her Master of Fine Arts from Purchase College, New York. Through her multi-layered collage works, Rizzio presents a new vision of 1950’s American life. In viewing her pieces one is thrown into an imagined environment of domesticity, confronting the viewer with themes of femininity, advertising, and excess from an overly idealized time period. With a heavy focus on materiality, Rizzio breathes new life into everything from wallpaper and postcards to matchbooks and food packaging.

Warren Seelig: Shadowfields
Seelig lives and works in Rockland. He is a sculptor and distinguished visiting professor in the Fibers/Mixed Media program at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he teaches, curates, and writes on various subjects related to textile, fiber, and material studies. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science and an Master of Fine Arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has received multiple fellowships from both the National Endowment for the Arts and Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. His work has been included in more than 30 major museum exhibitions in the US, Europe, Japan and Korea, with many solo and group shows worldwide. Seelig’s Shadowfield works use light as a material to engage plexiglass, stone, and metal with the space around them, blurring the lines of where the work begins and ends. “Shadow has a substance, in a way, but it’s there and then it’s gone.”

Anna B. McCoy
McCoy is devoted to portraying her subjects through a lens that is personal, introspective, and exquisitely evocative of time passing. McCoy’s works have a unique painterly style, creating everyday scenes with emotional depth. She studied painting and drawing with her aunt, Carolyn Wyeth, and later at Bennett College in Millbrook, New York.

Dowling Walsh Gallery is located at 365 Main St., in Rockland, directly across from the Farnsworth Art Museum. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and by appointment on Sunday and Monday.
