Marcia R. Cohen, visual artist and educator has exhibited and lectured on her
artwork nationally and internationally and has received numerous grants,
fellowships and commissions. Her paintings, works on paper, polychrome sculpture

and the illusive nature of color.

Academy in Rome and in 2011 was awarded a Fulbright-Hays Fellowship for travel
and research in Morocco and Tunisia.
The award of a “Working Artist Project Fellowship” culminated in her solo
exhibition “Sight Specific” at MOCA Ga in 2009. As an artist in residence in 2014
in Santa Fe, New Mexico, 2013 in Reykjavik, Iceland and in 2008 in the Azores,
Archipelago, Cohen created installations and color interventions based on
atmospheric phenomena and the indigenous landscape. Marcia Cohen’s work is
included in numerous private and public collections including the High Museum of
Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
