My fear of flying developed during several flights to Colorado. Electrical problems, fuel leaking out of an airline before take-off, auxiliary engine failure before flying into a blizzard, and many other “turbulent” experiences escalated my fear.

In early September 2001, there was a terrible thunderstorm when my airplane was about to land at BWI, Baltimore. The airport radar was struck by lightning (more…)

You are Invited

Marian Osher’s mixed-media painting and printmaking on canvas celebrates a broad spectrum of colors, textures and dimensions that stimulate her personal vision. Floral gifts from friends and family are reinterpreted in paintings and monotype printmaking on sculpted canvas. An avid beachcomber, Osher combines paintings of shells, real shells and sand, extending the composition onto the sides of small deep canvases. Additionally, she explores compositions with shells in monotype printmaking, building multiple levels on canvas. She hopes that viewers will feel tactile and sensory connections to their own experiences.

What does a painting inspired by the John Lennon Imagine Memorial have in common with an abstract aerial landscape and a mandala?  Marian Osher finds inspiration for her artwork from a diverse range of internal and external sources.  ART MATTERS includes new artwork and a retrospective selection of paintings and prints created over a 10 year period to combat fear, promote connection and mindfulness, and raise awareness of the importance of living in harmony with the environment.

“Over the last decade, my art has allowed me to share the insights and realizations that have changed me as a person,” says Marian Osher. “I hope that the viewer will find connections between this exhibition and their own life-shaping experiences.” Marian Osher

ART MATTERS celebrates the artist’s continuing commitment to creating eco-spiritual art. “Fearless Flying,” a solo exhibition created by the artist to combat her fear of flying, was shown in New York and in Washington, DC in 2010.  “Seen Unseen,” March 2010, NY, synthesized her fascination with the urban world of NYC and her experiences as an eco artist.  Osher’s 2007, 2008 and 2009 solo shows in Washington, DC and NY focused on environmental issues and mindfulness.  Multiple volunteer experiences in Montana for the Buffalo Field Campaign inspired artwork to raise awareness of the plight of the Yellowstone Buffalo.  In 2007, Environmental Defense selected Osher’s artwork for the cover of their Pocket Seafood Selector, that helps consumers to make environmentally sound seafood choices.  Previous solo shows have explored spirituality and universal connections between diverse cultures and the natural world.
