“This exemplary presentation of works exudes a cohesive flow and connects viewers to the emotions and experiences expressed by the artists’ fabulous demonstration of texture and color,” said Hooper Capozzi, exhibition curator and Gallery Committee Chair of MartinArts.  



This vibrantly expressive show, curated by Ken Hooper Capozzi and Maria Miele, presents a stunning showcase of singular expression, by three remarkable female artists. Sharing a moving stage of individual works, and an exciting variety of mediums and works, exhibiting Artists Cheryl Cote′, Danuta Rothschild, and Kirsten Stingle seamlessly invoke thought and conversation about the nuances of life. The exhibition is comprised of inspiring works that tell the story of challenges, struggles, and celebrated joys encountered along the way.






“Be True To Your Roots” by Cheryl Cote′


“We invite the community to enjoy experiencing “Humanity through the Artist Eye – A 3 Woman Perspective, in voice and celebration of the stories shared through the works of these three unique artists,” said Nancy Turrell, Executive Director, MartinArts.


Over her career, Cheryl Cote′s style has evolved from a very ‘fine-detail’ artist, to a broader spectrum of color and light. A visually impaired artist, her collection conveys life, with the intention to encourage people to overcome. With limited sight, and challenges faced when painting, Cote’s developed and unique style relays image on canvas, in a bold and signature display of great light, shadow and color. Through her eyes, viewers ‘see’ the souls of each figure she paints.





“Retirement” by Danuta Rothschild



Internationally respected and award-winning artist, Danuta Rothschild captures the scope of human experience from the ominous to the magically affirming. Her sculptures, globally exhibited in the United States, Poland, Bosnia, and France, are a brilliant showcase of humanity and poverty. Bold color and texture reveal the stories and struggles of her characters as they move through life. Placing figures into an endless space and vast nature, she gives the viewer a sense of dreamlike or vast perspective of the human experience. Rothchild’s vast and endless depiction of nature, reveals that ‘we’ are but a small part of the story she tells.






“The Shepherd” by Kirsten Stingle




Kirsten Stingle’s work is both bold and expressive. Her amazing images in mixed media combine unique textures, fabric, clay, and construction to give emotion to her figures. Her color palette, often dominated by sepia tones, show a somber, yet emotional character. The expressions she gives her figures are often wondrous and so detailed you feel as if they will spring to life, with details of facial expression and clothing dictating a time and place. Positioning her figures on or in unique situations, each work tells a story. Layering each sculpture with a delicate balance of technique, lends to vivid imagery, while strengthening the complexity of her expression.
