Mary Ann Cangialosi 

I always gravitated towards beautiful things, whether it be vibrant sunsets on the beaches of North Carolina, the picturesque south of France, the architecture in Italy, exotic animals of Africa, and even the full moons seen from my back yard! Eventually I developed an appreciation for the creative expression of fashion and art forms.  When I was 10 years old my Father bought me my first easel and acrylic set.  By the time I was 17, I was really experimenting with the wonders of acrylic paint.  At 18 I entered into the psychology curriculum at N.C. State University.  Psychology had always been so intriguing to me, but not compared to the fulfillment I received when making objets d’art.  My sophomore year I joined the College of Textiles as a Textile Design major.  Textiles, fashion, and art seemed to be intertwined and connected to one another.  During my college days I continued painting and really developing as an artist.  After I graduated and moved to Charlotte, NC I started my first job with Fieldcrest Cannon as a Print Fabric Designer and later as a Woven fabric Artist.  It was a great experience during those years developing beautiful textiles for the bedding and bath market.  I then moved on to some interior design and all the while still painting.  It seemed as if I could have the creative freedom to truly express myself in art than design.  I’ve selected some pieces to share and hope that you enjoy them.  I’m also beginning the development of a new series which I will exhibit in 2009.  Thanks so much for your interest and remember to have some fun!

Marguerite Driscoll; Multi-Media Artist

Marguerite Driscoll’s creative process is an interwoven dialogue between conceptual and conventional ideas. She intuitively manipulates materials to mimic her fascination within those complex conversations. In her artwork, she layers as a means to explore those fundamental ideas. Ideas such as: wave interference, black relative to white, static state, color, and the movement within all of these.

Marguerite Driscoll 



As an artist, I am as fascinated by ideas as I am by visual material. Recently, I discovered that the word fascination has a dark history. Between the years of 1590 and 1600, fascinate originated to describe the supernatural ability of witches and serpents to spell bind their prey.

Today, fascinate has expanded its definition to include “a sense of attraction or delight.” I am interested in where the two meanings of this word overlap. Nature has produced characteristics which mesmerize the senses; for example, consider the iridescence of a butterfly. Likewise, the world of man has also produced similar traits, reflect on the captivating television.   

I intuitively manipulate materials to mimic my fascination with complex ideas. My creative process is an interwoven dialogue between the conceptual and the conventional. In my artwork, I layer as a means to explore fundamental ideas. Ideas such as: wave interference, black relative to white, static state, color, and the movement within all of these.

 The corresponding relationships of those fundamental ideas fascinate me. By dissecting each thought into individual layers, I preserve an inner peace while challenging my intellectual capacity, one layer at a time.
