Local Summer Camp Visits LongHouse Sculpture

It brings me such joy to see the children of a local East Hampton summer camp interacting with my piece “Almost Like The Blues” at LongHouse Reserve

To see how much the kids enjoy playing with the transparency of the piece, how the light dances around them as they explore the nuances of the sculpture, is just wonderful. This is everything I could have hoped for when making this piece.

The ongoing, collaborative project seeks to find a spatial cross-section between disciplines: painting, architecture, and video-as it rethinks the place of the artist’s studio and its relation with site, the public, and various frames and positions. Learn more

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS at Driscoll Babcock

November 17 – January 26, 2013

Opening Reception Saturday November 17, 4-7PM

Driscoll Babcock Galleries is pleased to present DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, the latest body of work by Marylyn Dintenfass, whose brilliant chromatic abstractions evolve to evoke a representational narrative about nature’s fatally duplicitous markers. Dintenfass’ work has always embodied the unease of “nothing is ever what is seems” in life, and her newest canvases draw their inspiration from some of nature’s most beautiful, but dangerous plants. A focus of the show is the Angel’s Trumpet flower, a ravishing and singular beauty of nature whose exquisite deadliness is iconic. Dintenfass’ vibrant abstractions of the Angel Trumpet’s shapes and forms conjure the plant’s stunning looks, its siren-like allure, and its toxicity.

We only wish Fort Myers did have such a thriving arts scene that it could support a large, five-story structure devoted entirely to art.”

Ms. Dintenfass’ massive project Parallel Park was recently completed and installed on the exterior walls of the five-story Lee County Justice Center parking garage. This exhibition gives viewers an opportunity to see some of the original monotypes created for Parallel Park, as well as some of the artist’s most recent work.

“It was standing room only last night at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery on the Lee campus of Edison State College as more than 300 people turned out to meet and greet the artist who converted a five-story downtown parking garage into an experiential work of fine art. In spite of the throng, New York artist Marylyn Dintenfass transformed the event into an intimate evening with the artist.
