Mara Torres González, the founder of M A R A Art Studio + Gallery, says that the exhibit is a celebration of women in honor of Women’s History Month. The contemporary artists who were invited and selected for this exhibit include Grace Howl, Midge Johnson, Craig T. Marks, Jana Millstone, Pamela Olin, Ashley Rivers, Diana Rubí, Jack Shapiro and Mara Torres González.
“March is Women’s History Month, and what better way to celebrate them than to have an exhibition where artists honor women through creativity.” The exhibit includes two- and three-dimensional mixed media artwork, from small to large scale. “The pieces are all fascinating, from paintings to sculptures, the exhibition includes a wide variety of work reflecting movement, history, voices and stories told.”
M A R A Art Studio + Gallery showcases a powerful range of homegrown talents, including Torres González’s own mixed-media works, which have been shown in galleries and are part of private collections in Puerto Rico, México, London and the United States. The artist explains that her gallery is also a home for discovering the talents of other area-based artists. “I strongly believe in the power of community,” says Torres González. “During this coming year, we will be focusing on collaborating with area artists groups and organizations, including Ringling College and New College of Florida.”
