Introducing Chris Osborne, Merryall Center's 2023 Artist in Residence. Chris's wonderfully detailed and narrative filled piece will be on view at all of this season's events.
Using paint and brushes as her tools, Chris Osborne is a visual storyteller. Her unique style of portraiture depicts the bond between luminary and automobile. Within each painting Chris lovingly applies the smallest of details to her canvas, imagining the classic relationship between personality and auto that has inspired our culture for more than a century.
Danielle Mailer received her BA from Bowdoin College and studied at both the New York Studio School and the School of Visual Arts. In the last half a decade she has completed three site specific public artworks in Torrington and Salisbury Connecticut thanks to grants from Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism , National Endowment for the Arts and Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
Mailer has shown in galleries and museums throughout North America. She was honored with a retrospective at the Mattatuck Museum with over 40 of her works on display. She was also part of a traveling retrospective of Provincetown artists titled "The Tides of Provincetown" at the New Britain Museum of American Art. She is represented by the Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown Mass., and The White Gallery in Lakeville Connecticut.
Merryall is proud and honored to share this fine artist’s work as part of its public art series.
