I had a ball working with Carol Rhodes Dyson, Busboys and Poets Curator in Residence, to select the 19 pieces from my portfolio.   We hung on April 20th at the Takoma Busboys. 

All pieces in the collection are mounted 17” x 14” in custom black wooden frames with 8ply mats. Images are from my travels around the world. The show will be up until August 26th. Please email me for more information or stop by Bus Boys at 235 Carroll St NW, WDC, 20012 for a meal and to check me out!

This is weekend is a great time for art lovers to visit Takoma.  Busboys and Poets Takoma is participating in Art Hop on Saturday and Sunday. Art Hop will feature works from local artists (like me) and transforms Takoma into a lively arts district.  Visitors will find art ranging from ceramics to sculpture and photography and much more offered for sale at various price points.  Pick up a map and wander at your leisure.  Remember, my work is at Busboys and Poets.

Marvin Bowser Photography Update #1

Dawn to Sunset — Color, Shadow and Light

I created Dawn to Sunset collection for a show I did with fellow artist, Hernan Gigena April 3rd at the Brixton. About 100 people turned out for the spring-themed happy hour which also raised funds for the Wanda Alston Foundation. The collection, Dawn to Sunset, consists of twenty 17” x 14” pieces in custom black wooden frames and 8ply mats like Dragon Fly and Lotus Bud, pictured here.

Check out the catalog for the April 3rd show here. Please contact me if you are interested in these pieces.
