Marianne Barcellona graduated from Oberlin College in the late 60’s, then moved to New York City, where she spent two decades as a successful editorial photographer, travelling the globe for major magazines, cultural and humanitarian organizations and corporations. In the late 1990’s she earned a Certificate in Painting from The New York Studio School. She has been awarded fellowships at nine internationally-renowned artist residencies, and her work has been included in over 70 exhibitions. Barcellona’s great loves are travel and encountering new environments. Her direct and through-the-lens experiences of different cultures and landscapes provide the inspiration for her work.
