Monthly OPEN Studio! January 11th 2014
ITS 2014! Lets see some ART!
The working art studio / gallery of Margie Darrow is a studio that offers a unique gallery presentation of artwork in various stages of completion by the artist. Visitors are privy to art and ideas in process as well as finished pieces.
Darrow has a unique ability to intersect the real with the abstract with pieces that showcase a phenomenal eye for color. Her wide range of work: paintings, woodwork, drawing, and installation makes for an inviting and interesting gallery walk that provides a creative, eclectic and educational environment in which to explore.
NEW THIS MONTH AND Never display is a selection of collaborative artwork by the now disbanded Fallopian Artopians. The Fallopian Artopians 2007-2009 were a Live Collaborative Female Painting Troupe (Yvonne Sanders, Justine Serebrin and Margie Darrow).

Ending the painting process when the paintings were complete or a 2 1/2 hour performance was complete.
