Maryanne Buschini

Maryanne Buschini explores ideas of origin, ancestry, history, and community in her figurative paintings. As a child of immigrants, Buschini uses her artwork as a tool to better understand her own connections to her ancestors and home. 

Her most recent work looks at the history of the laborers who contributed to the construction of the New York City water system, a project that was an important part of her childhood, having grown up in the area and “seeing the reservoir lake and large dam almost every day…in a town where many of the immigrant/workers had settled.” The artwork is the result of her research, piecing together the family and cultural history of those who lived on the land used for the reservoir and displaying it in a personable way that evokes an emotional response in the viewer.

Adina Segal

Visual artist Adina Segal creates abstract mixed-media paintings inspired by her own intuition and the organic forms she finds in nature. Segal takes on an intuitive approach when making her paintings, layering thin coats of watercolor and gouache and letting the work naturally take shape by trusting the process and learning when to pull away. 

She notes, “following my intuition and trusting when to stop and when to work back into the painting, is contrary to how I often exist in other areas of my life…I am a planner, a list-maker, someone who likes to know what to expect.” Letting herself create in this way creates compositions that feel fluid, expressive, and unique and allows for new artistic discovery.
