The Sunderland artist grew up performing with her household on the tobacco farm exactly where she now paints. Her representational functions which have addressed both equally the likes of social commentary and farming have been exhibited regionally and nationally, but under no circumstances domestically – right until now.
Talking about her art this very well respected artist and educator says: “The making of Art for me is a actual physical, religious, intellectual and psychological method which can be concurrently humbling and elating. If I have a lofty target it would be that the will work lead in some way to the shaping of a a lot more tolerable existence.”
Dowell’s solo present will be held in MCAC’s entrance gallery. In the back gallery Dowell is joined by Frederick photographer Donald Dunsmore for “Addiction and Art” – an exhibition that utilizes artwork to encourage dialogue about substance abuse and recovery.
