2012 Center for Maine Contemporary Art Biennial

October 17, 2012

The 2012 CMCA Biennial includes work by seventeen artists, seven of whom were invited and ten selected by juried submission.  I am very pleased to have been included among the group of ten selected artists, out of approximately 450 applications submitted.  My contribution to this exhibition includes five of my graphite on paper bag sculptures ranging in size from small -desktop sized- to a full standing piece approximately six feet tall, and one diptych flat wall piece. The show will run through the beginning of December, 2012, and is well worth a visit to CMCA in Rockport, ME, if you are in the vicinity.  @ Center for Maine Contemporary Art

“Continuance” at Coleman Burke Gallery, Portland, Maine, May-June 2012

April 22, 2012

Update: Continuance has been extended at Coleman Burke Gallery in Portland, Me, through July.


I’m excited to be showing my sculpture, “Continuance,” an installation piece, at the Coleman Burke Gallery, in Portland, Maine, during the months of May and June, 2012.  The opening reception coincides with First Friday Art-walk in Portland; May 4th between 5-7 pm.

Below is text from the press release for this exhibition.

Titled “Continuance,” the piece is one of an ongoing series of sculptures that has its origins in simple, common materials—graphite and paper. “Central to this body of work is the theme of transformative process and accumulative cultural content,” says Marshall. “In much the same way that a beloved personal object accumulates meaning for its owner through possession, time and extended use, my desire is that these sculptures will resonate a shared cultural history, while also challenging assumptions about materials, objects, and the emotive sources of art.”

The Coleman Burke Gallery in Portland is located in the window of Port City Music at 504 Congress
Street. Learn more about Coleman Burke Gallery at and about First Friday Arts Walk in Portland at

Summer 2010 – Fryeburg Academy, Fryeburg, Maine

June 21, 2010

Five large drawings and six sculptures were included in the Summer 2010 exhibition at the Stephen & Palmina Pace Galleries at Fryeburg Academy, in Fryeburg, Maine.  This was special for me since Stephen Pace was both a friend and an important early influence on my desire and decision to be an artist.  I studied with Steve for two years when he first arrived at American University in Washington, DC, in the nineteen-seventies.  I was also fortunate to visit and spend time with he and his wife, Pam, during their last five summers in Stonington, Maine.
