Maggie is featured artist at Artexpo New York
Maggie has just exhibited at ArtExpo New York ( February 28th-March 3rd ). She was delighted to be selected as one of seven artists to be featured for the show by Artexpo on their website. With over 600 artists exhibiting at the show it was a real accolade and achievement for her work.

This follows on the back of Artexpo using one of Maggie’s paintings “Liquid Light”, as the featured painting in Artexpo’s promotional e-mail, which went out to 1,000's of potential visitors across the US and around the world. She has already had several inquires about the painting from galleries in the US.

Maggie exhibits by invitation of the British Consulate

Emerging British abstract artist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts Maggie C (FRSA) has just been selected by the British Consulate to be the only artist featured at the U.K./U.S. Excellence in Creative Industries Reception. The event, hosted by the British Consulate and in the presence of His Royal Highness Prince Andrew and also attended by Digby, Lord Jones of Birmingham, Minster for Trade and Investment will be held in the Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Plaza, New York City, on February 15, 2008. The reception is a celebration of creative talent in both the U.K. and U.S. with a guest list that reads like a who's who, including celebrities from the art, film, music, TV, fashion, design, publishing and business worlds.

"This is such an exciting and unique opportunity to showcase my work as well as an honor and with the Manhattan skyline as a back drop to it all" said Maggie. 

Maggie's striking use of color texture and subject matter will be featured as a modern display of unabashed color, organic form, and dimension bending uses of dark and light.  Her art, which she describes as “abstract landscapes”, is inspired by her fascination with volcanic activity and her deep concern for the environment.  ‘Liquid Light’ and selected others will be displayed on the Rainbow Room’s walls, enhancing the event and inviting all present to take in the raw power and energy of her unique art.

Maggie Cousins is represented by galleries in the U.K, New York and California

Maggie receives grant funding from the British Government to exhibit at Artexpo Las Vegas
Maggie, who is currently located in New York for 6 months, received funding from the U.K. government, Trade and Investment to exhibit at  the first Artexpo in Las Vegas. Not surprisingly, Maggie's first exhibit in the U.S. was recognized as an “emerging artist to note” by the Consulate in New York and at the Artexpo as her abstract landscapes created visceral tremors in the art world.  Her work was well received on the West Coast, with particular interest from Sony Pictures Entertainment and several L.A. galleries. Since the show she has committed to exhibit with WWA gallery in Culver City, LA where her work will be shown in early summer 2008.
