FIRST FRIDAYS in Skippack Village: Artist Mairin Egge / Gallery Opening Reception / June 6th, 2014

Artist Mairin Egge

Biography
Painting mostly in oil and acrylic, Mairin captures beauty in the ordinary through bold, colorful expression. Her style involves noticeable brush strokes and texture. The artist's intention is to delight the viewer with images that are aesthetically pleasing and to create duende, which comes from inside as a physical and/or emotional response to the art.Mairin’s love for painting began the moment she first held a paint brush, and her interest as an adult became a passion and career.

first friday in skippack village montgomery county pennsylvania 19474Growing up in Hudson, Ohio, her parents encouraged and exposed her to various avenues and mediums through after school art programs and activities. Special individuals shaped her love for art, especially Gretchen Bierbaum (President and founder of the National Collage Society). Gretchen is considered family, as well as a role model and mentor for Mairin. Gretchen always encouraged Mairin to commit to her passion and she can do anything she puts her mind to.

Rather than discouraging her from pursuing an art career, like many parents do, Mairin’s parents invigorated her passion, encouraging her to major in art. While attending Miami University, Mairin was very active in the art community, serving as the Secretary and President of the National Art Education Association. She was on the Dean’s list junior and senior year and received the Outstanding Senior Award in Art Education at graduation. Mairin received her BS in Art Education from Miami University, and currently works in the greater Philadelphia area as a professional artist and art instructor.

Two of Mairin’s biggest accomplishments while living and working in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, were guest speaker and exhibitor at the Susquehanna Art Museum, and working with at-risk youth, mentoring them through the art process. Since moving to the Philadelphia area in August 2013, Mairin dove into the art scene head first and is actively involved in many art organizations and galleries. She is a member and art instructor with both the North Penn Art Alliance (NPAA) in Lansdale, Pennsylvania and Art Nouveau Galleries in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Since becoming an associate of the Twenty-Two Gallery in Philadelphia, Mairin has explored the surrounding Philadelphia art scene and exhibited at the Plastic Club and Einstein Braemer Medical Arts Building. Her first honor in this new territory was from NPAA’s 26th Anniversary Art Show, receiving the “People’s Choice” Award. Mairin is branching out and has representation at the Mac Worthington Gallery in Columbus Ohio starting in April. Looking forward, she also has numerous art festivals, exhibits, and solo shows confirmed.

Not limiting herself to canvas or paper surfaces, she also enjoys painting glass, furniture and both indoor and outdoor murals. Having created many commission pieces of artwork, Mairin has a flair for capturing essential subject elements, personality features or other aspects important to the client. She has a unique gift in understanding the needs and desires of her clients through this ability. "Mairin is a talented artist that has the rare ability to take a client's vision and put it on the desired medium. While this sounds simple, it is not common. She does not try to change their vision or criticize their vision -- as many artists do -- she simply gives them what they want," Chad’s (client) testimonial. Collections of her work can be found in both public and corporate locations, such as the Booker T. Washington Community Center in Hamilton Ohio, Ciocca Dealerships in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, Lebanon VA Medical Center in Lebanon Pennsylvania, Miami University Police Department in Oxford Ohio, and the YWCA in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Private creations are located in Brazil, England, and various homes and offices around North and Central America.

Opening Reception:   June 6, 2014, 5 – 10pm (First Friday)
Show Dates:  June 2 – 29, 2014
