Opening Reception: Sunday, September 17 from 11-2pm
In her “History Adorned” series, artist Maremi Andreozzi has created a remarkable and sensitive group of portraits of women throughout history. While some of the subjects are already famous, others have only recently begun to have their fascinating stories told. The women range from doctors to natural healers, aristocracy to activists, artists to writers. Each is painted in silhouette, ageless and beautiful, to emphasize their obscurity from history. Their adornments, brooches, lace, earrings, hats and dresses, give them each an exquisite uniqueness. With simple details decorating the backgrounds of these faceless figures, we can learn so much about the rich lives these women lived, imagining them looking at us in the future.
Maremi was born and currently lives in Alexandria, Virginia. She earned a BFA from Cornell University and a MFA from Clemson University. She was an artist in residence at the International Artist Residency in La Macina di San Cresci in Chianti, Italy. She has exhibited at the Tephra Institute for Contemporary Art, the Smith Center, the Rachel Schlesinger Art Center/NOVA, the Torpedo Factory, Radford University, Glenview Mansion and the Howard County Council for the Arts. Her work is in many private and public collections including Marriott Corporation, Rutgers University and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. This is Maremi’s second solo show with Adah Rose Gallery.
Adah Rose Gallery is located at 3770 Howard Ave., Kensington, MD.
