MARIELUISE HUTCHINSON, a self taught artist from Yarmouth Port, MA and Cushing, ME, paints subjects of "roads less travelled." The distinct seasons of New England as well as its character present an endless source of inspiration. A deep respect and sensitivity for the commonplace is evident as she records the passage of time of vanishing homesteads, fields and farmlands of rural America. Marieluise received Copley Master Artist status at the Copley Society of Boston, Master Artist at the Cape Cod Art Association, and she is a member of the Cape Cod Museum of Art. She is also in the permanent collection at the Cahoon Museum of American Art and the Cape Cod Museum of Art.
Many of Marieluise's discoveries have resulted from trial and error. Always drawn to creative pursuits, she did not, however, begin to paint until her late twenties. Her work has a tone of thoughtfulness, a tangible silence. It evokes the feeling of a crisp autumn evening or the chilling snap of winter, or the solitude that follows in the wake of a New England snowfall, smoke drifting from farmhouse chimney tops -- a pale veil of white drifting up into a sapphire blue night sky. Generally, no figures appear in her paintings but a human presence is implied by lights in the windows, clothes on the line, or a snowman in front of the farmhouse.
Marieluise has been commissioned to paint holiday cards by numerous organizations and charities, some of which include: Amica (Automobile Mutual Insurance Company of America), The American Red Cross, The Children's Hospital in Boston, A Baby Center (Hyannis, MA) and The Pine Tree Society (Bath, Maine).
Hutchinson was chosen to be part of the U.S. Department of State's Art in the Embassies program which aims to encourage cultural exchange through the visual arts. Her work was chosen to be part of the ambassador's collection in Athens, Greece in 2013, and selected again in 2016 for the collection in Vilnius, Lithuania.
