Zwier Digital Arts Flies (temporarily) South for the Winter…Twice!

 

Well, more driving than flying, but you get the idea! This winter I was honored that Zwier Digital Arts was accepted into two juried art fairs in southwestern Florida. 

The first fair was held in Estero at the Miromar Design Center the first weekend in January. The Design Center is a great retail space with AMAZING home furnishings and decor, and the artists exhibiting with me at this show were all at the top of their game as well. You can see the new booth design that I am using for these shows in the video at left.

The second show will be held in downtown Naples, Florida on March 18-19, 2017. The 29th Downtown Naples Festival of the Arts will feature 230+ booths on Fifth Avenue South from  Highway 41 west to 3rd Street South. If you know anyone who is going to be in the area during those days, be sure to send them my way to enjoy great art in the sunshine. I'll be adding some new things to my inventory for this show and trying out some new ways of selling mandalas, including a selection of discounted pieces that are discontinued or might be slightly less than perfect after being put on display a few times.

As always, be sure to check my Art Fair Schedule page for the latest information on where you can see my mandalas in person. And of course, you can visit my online store to see and read about all the latest designs as they are created.

Thanks for visiting!

 

Maureen Zwier featured on Glenview Television's "Real People, Real Matters"

[Press Release] Glenview, Illinois - What's it like to become a full-time artist after working in another field? How does that past career experience inform how your art is made today? And what is a mandala? Maureen Zwier of Zwier Digital Arts covered these topics and more when she was interviewed for Glenview Television's "Real People, Real Matters" show in July.

In the video below, Maureen describes the making of a mandala, tells stories about her first commissioned work and her development as an artist, and highlights some of her experiences showing and selling her work at the Art at the Glen Town Center Art Festival. 

Maureen Zwier's work as a digital artist has been featured at art fairs throughout the Chicago and Milwaukee metropolitan areas as well as in both brick-and-mortar and online art galleries nationwide. She also received a Best of Houzz award in 2015 for outstanding customer service on the popular interior designer web site. Maureen showed her work at Amdur Productions' Art at the Glen art festival for the second time this year, and plans to apply for a place at the show again in 2017.

The focus of Maureen Zwier's art is the creation of mandalas based on photographs of original, organic subjects. The word mandala is a Sanskrit term meaning essence. It may also be translated as completion or circle. A mandala is typically created with concentric patterns and diagrams used to draw the eye inward.
