I’m January’s Featured Artist at the Dunedin Fine Art Center

Here is the invitation to the Dunedin Fine Art Center‘s monthly Coffee and Conversation series. I’ll be posting the YouTube video of my zoom presentation here soon.

Coffee & Conversation with Rose Marie Prins is at NOON on Tues., Jan. 11th (Virtually!)

Hanging out, drinking delicious coffee, talking about art… ahhhh, that’s the life! Well, that WAS the life at least for an hour or so each month at the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Coffee and Conversation series, sponsored by DFAC’s Sterling Society.

Times change and so do our pleasures. So many of them have become virtual. That doesn’t need to lessen the joy in connecting with artists you may know or have always wanted to meet! You can still enjoy the insights as each month’s invited guest holds forth on their own area of expertise…

You’ll just have to pour your own coffee!

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022 at 12 noon, the series welcomes artist Rose Marie Prins. Rose Marie’s presentation will focus on her art-making practice since 1980, when, after completing her MA at the Woman’s Building in Los Angeles, she moved to Santa Fe where she developed her “mature style.” During subsequent moves to Virginia and Florida her work evolved and changed as she explored a variety of media in paintings, printmaking, artist’s books, drawing and sculpture, including conceptual site specific installations. In 2020 she published a book, A Leaf in the Wind: Poems by Jaro Majer, Artwork by Rose Marie Prins.

Rose Marie Prins’ mixed-media paintings and sculptures have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums, cultural centers and galleries throughout the United States, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Jonson Gallery at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, the Bayly Art Museum at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville; the Polk Museum of Art in Lakeland, Florida; the Gulf Coast Museum in Largo, Florida; the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe; the Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art in New Orleans; Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art in Newark, New Jersey; the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Sweet Briar and at Moulin à Nef, Auvillar, France; the Erector Square Gallery in New Haven, Connecticut; the Bridge Street Gallery in Big Fork Montana; the Courtyard Gallery in Alameda, California; the Merlin Gallery in San Francisco; the Woman’s Building in Los Angeles and the Johannesburg Art Gallery in South Africa.
