Marie Hines Cowan is a figurative oil painter who marries mythology with colloquial culture. Her work is narrative, life-sized and representational, though unconstrained by realism. Willing to push color further than the average eyes sees, Hines Cowan’s work is bold, colorful and painterly, but also graphic and illustrative.
Jumping feet first into the exhibition world in 1979, Hines Cowan has been exhibiting in the tri-state area and Europe ever since. Each fall she participates in the New Rochelle’s Artsfest and Open Studios. During the fall of 2017 she also flew to London, England to participate in Parallax Art Fair. She frequently exhibits in group exhibitions, and this past February had a solo exhibition at the Lord and Andra Gallery. Hines Cowan has two more solo exhibitions planned for 2018, a second solo exhibit at Lord and Andra Gallery in July and August, and an exhibition at the Barrons Art Center in New Jersey in October. In April of 2019 she has a solo exhibit at the Crary Art Gallery in Pennsylvania. Hines Cowan is also involved in local and national art groups such as the National Association of Women Artists, the Portrait Society of America and Katonah Museum of Art Artist Association. She has recently gained representation with Art Productions NYC.
