Glen Cove, NY–Hersh Fine Art is pleased to announce Awakenings, a solo exhibition of paintings by Long Island artist Marjorie van de Stouwe. Awakenings will be on view from May 13 until June 17, 2017. The artist will be present for an opening reception on Saturday, May 13, from 6 to 8pm.
Dr. Marjorie van de Stouwe is woman devoted to nurturing and preserving life. Both a successful physician and a highly skilled artist, her artistic work naturally comes from a deep love and respect of life in its depiction of living flower arrangements and their accoutrements. “I would like my work to soften the edges on our minds,” Dr. van de Stouwe explains, “to create a sense of peace, and at times, possibly humor.” Her subject matter is primarily still life with an emphasis on nature, frequently featuring flowers picked straight from her garden.
