Maureen McCabe - Connecticut
The Card Master, 2003
Mixed media on slate / 19th century Eastlake frame
13 1/2 x 11 3/4 x 4 inches
by Maureen McCabe
Maureen McCabe's mixed media collages were exhibited in Audart's "Shrines to Fantasy" exhibition in the Fall of 1996.
Drawing on myth, history, folklore and her own sense of humor, McCabe creates small, framed worlds with all the magic of a visit to Alice in Wonderland. Gypsies and fortune tellers, cards and tricks, relics and medals, old proverbs presented in different ways, a bit of this and a swatch of that - McCabe clearly enjoys making art that draws the viewer into the world of the beautiful and peculiar.
Maureen McCabe's work has been extensively exhibited in museums and galleries, including solo exhibitions at the Cooley Gallery in Connecticut (1995) ; Barry Friedman, Ltd (1985) and the Allan Stone Gallery (1972, 1975, 1977) in New York City; and Gallery K in Washington, D.C. (1972, 1975, 1979, 1984, 1987, 1995). Her group exhibitions include the Babcock Galleries in New York City (1994); the traveling exhibition New England Now (1988-1989); Imágenes en Cajas (1985), Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; the RenwickGallery/Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. (1974, 1978, 1979); and the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.
Her work was recently exhibited at the Alva Gallery in the show "Realia".
