Willie Marlowe is best known for her small, intimate acrylic and mixed
media work on paper. These luminous, brilliantly colored pieces
are reminiscent of looking through a microscope at an entirely new,
miniscule living world. Marlowe makes playful use of geometric
and organic shapes and symbols, all of which reflect her interest in
botany, marine life, Celtic culture and the archaeology of Europe, the
Yucaton and Russia. She was an artist-in-residence in Barbados,
West Indies; Cortona, Italy; Wexford, Ireland; the Millay Colony for
the Arts in Austerlitz, New York; and at the Cill Rialaig Project in
Ballinskelligs, Ireland. These extensive travels and experiences have
each added to her unique and growing iconography.
For over twenty years, Marlowe has taught painting and drawing classes
at the Sage College of Albany in Albany, New York. She also
taught watercolor classes in two of the Sage Colleges' international
studies programs, as well as in Scotland and Ireland. Willie Marlowe has an extensive national and international exhibition
record, including a 10-year Retrospective Exhibition at the Wexford
Arts Center in Wexford, Ireland. Her work can be found in numerous
museum, corporate and private collections throughout the United States
including those of The Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte; The Boston Public
Library; The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; The Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Museum, The National Association of Women Artists Collection, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ; The Albany Institute of History and Art, Albany, NY; The University Art Museum, State University of New York at Albany, Albany, NY
