Roberts Street Chapel No. 8, 2015, 6 feet by 55 feet, acrylic on canvas.

Artist Statement

I fed and soothed my 7 children in grandma’s old rocking chair in full view of my easel.  Seeking adult company studying the artistic languages and works of the masters.  Undecipherable drawings hinting at vistas and personages appear in my own art. I watch them with fascination today as they emerge mysteriously in color and line.

Thank you for visiting my site.  I want to show you and tell a bit of the story of my career as an artist.  There’s some news here about art that I’ve worked on recently, some news that I have about art and the artists around me, and I am especially featuring some of the public art that I’ve completed and have in process.  If you have questions, you can give me a call, or an email message.  I’m never too far from my computer or phone.



Plain Art - a documentary by Mary Trunk about the Roberts Street Chaplet Project

Mary Trunk, creator of “Plain Art”, a documentary about the Roberts Street Chaplet project, released the movie online on the Culture Unplugged website.  This will open in it’s own window.  The movie is a bit more than 77 minutes and contains a wealth of commentary and tremendous footage detailing the project.

November Work

Working through a few more of these large canvasses, I’ve had to start placing some of them on the floor in order to reach some of the uppermost parts of the canvas, especially on “Yellow... read more

Roberts Street Chapel No. 8 – video

I wanted to represent the latest Chapel painting, and you can imagine the difficulty – the proportions are wildly wide – 6 feet high by 55 feet wide.  Trying out a video to give a better feel.  We’ll be using this on some of my online profiles,... read more

Blast from the 90s

  The other day I came across a Kodak CD dated 1997.  After some conversion work, I am able to use these on my site.  The CD contained over 100 images, all work that I’ve done with acrylic on paper.  Many of these are no longer in my possession, so its nice to see.   MarjorieSchlossman1997-1 MarjorieSchlossman1997-10 MarjorieSchlossman1997-8 MarjorieSchlossman1997-9 MarjorieSchlossman1997-7 MarjorieSchlossman1997-6 MarjorieSchlossman1997-5 MarjorieSchlossman1997-4 MarjorieSchlossman1997-3... read more

Watercolors always close at hand

Recent Pen and Watercolors Often if I’m traveling, or I’m just at home, I’ll pick up a brush and work through a watercolor.  These are a few of my latest.  “Every medium changes the expression of my work.  The drama, the style, the work; it changes.  Watercolors are an important part of my artistic endeavor, filling the interstices of my life.” untitled, watercolor and pen on paper, 6″x6″, May 2015, 400214 Page 2 from A Lament without Words, pen and watercolor on paper, 6″x6″, 2012, 400221 untitled, pen and watercolor on paper, 6″x6″, May 2015,400217 Page 1 from A Lament Without Words, pen and watercolor on paper, 6″x6″, 2012, 400220 untitled, pen and watercolor on paper, 6″x6″, May 2015, 400216 untitled, pen and watercolor on paper, 6″x8″, May 2015, 400215 untitled, pen and watercolor on paper, 6″x8″, May 2015, 400219... read more
Newvember show at Ecce Gallery in Fargo

Newvember show at Ecce Gallery in Fargo

Hello Ecce Gallery! For the first time in a very long time, I have several pieces for sale in a gallery, specifically Ecce Gallery in Fargo.  Mark Weiler, owner of the gallery, spent hours pouring over my recent and some of my earlier work and came up with two pieces that he thought would compliment the “Newvember” show at the gallery.  The opening was a roaring success, and I’m happy to be included alongside some great pieces at...
Off to Chianciano

Off to Chianciano

  Just sent a recent watercolor, pen, and ink work to the Biennale in Chianciano, Italy.  Accustomed to scale, this must be one of the smaller pieces I’ve ever put on exhibition, even though I have many of them.  The logistics of moving an 8 X 6 foot work through Italian customs, I think, will be too...
Pleased and Honored to be at the Plains

Pleased and Honored to be at the Plains

Happened to be in the museum yesterday and visited the 1st floor gallery and I’m extremely humbled and honored to be one of the artists featured in the “40 Greatests Hits: Celebrating the Museum’s Permanent Collection.”  Ironically, I was in the gallery examining sculpture with the sculpture class.  This is a 4 component painting, called “Quartet in Lime” and meant to be viewed as a single piece.  There’s truly some fabulous art in this gallery; I feel truly humbled to be...

Monoprint travels to Paris Carrousel du Louvre

Pleased to see one of my monotypes on display in Paris at the 2015 Effeto Arte exhibition at the Paris Caroussel du Louvre.  It’s one of my older (April 2000) yet favorite pieces that I made at my print studio in the Black Building in downtown Fargo.  Mine is green with a frame.

London Biennale 2015

  Proud to be among such great work at the London Biennale 2015 Visited my piece last evening – had a great time – speaking with other artists and viewing other artworks.  I’m particularly happy with the frame that the Gagliardi put on my piece.  I had delivered it without a frame, and frankly wasn’t sure if it needed or should have one.  The black frame in wood complements the painting nicely, and I may have to reconsider framing others!
