"NY Muse: Book 1", a solo-show of paintings by New York artist Marie Hines Cowan, opened on April 3, 2014 at the N.A.W.A. Gallery.  A reception was held at the N.A.W.A. Gallery on April 9th from 5-7 p.m. 

Hines Cowan's work is inspired by Greek mythology and modern American culture. Mirroring the structure of Ovid's Metamorphoses, Hines Cowan's work is comprised of a series of stories. Based on traditional Greek stories and modern ones which Hines Cowan has written herself, the ancient deities depicted in her paintings are transformed as New Yorkers-- revealing themselves, for example, as a modern Athena expatriated from South Africa, or Muses who commute from the Bronx and Connecticut. The works consist of oil painting and relief-sculptured text. The narrative is an integral part of each painting, expanding the work well beyond the confines of the canvas.
