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.

Currently on display, are Darrow’s vintage inspired front window installation “Vintage Circus,” Featuring lowbrow style of the “Tattoo Lady” and “Vintage Apothecary” Visitors can enjoy and amuse in the installation, or find interest in Darrow’s recreation of an 1800’s traveling
apothecary case.
