About the Artist: Marisa Yow



marisayow_editMarisa Yow is another contributor to the 2015 Cummer Ball Silent Auction,  which will feature 9 reinterpretations  of a section from the treasured piece in the Museum’s permanent collection, Winslow Homer’s The White Rowboat, St. Johns River.

Ms. Yow is a young visual artist and instructor from Jacksonville, Florida. Two years ago she made the decision to come back home after spending several years in Philadelphia, where she taught and received her MFA at The Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts. Currently Marisa instructs at Bartram Trial and keeps a studio practice at CoRK Arts District, in the historic Riverside area. “My intention with anything that I make is to communicate with a type of universal language. The ability to have a connection with another on a level that is further felt than something that can be verbally communicated within the seconds of a meeting. That is what I strive for in my work.”

In Marisa’s painting (seen at the left), the soft brush strokes and blended colors evoke feelings of serenity, while sitting on the banks of the St. Johns staring at a distant tree dripping with Spanish Moss.  We truly appreciate Yow’s contribution, not only to this project but for all she contributes to the artistic movement in this city.
