Maggie Nowinski, MFA, is a multi-modal artist, teaching artist and curator based in Western Massachusetts. She received a BFA in painting from State University of New York at New Paltz and an MFA in Visual Art Vermont College of Fine Arts. With a background in drawing, she creates installations that combine traditional and unusual media, such as printmaking, found objects, sound, audio, and performative processes. Her work explores somatic responses to environment, internal and external passageways, and collected disturbances through imagined specimen drawings that depict abject human-botanical entities.
Nowinski’s practice is informed by an awareness of the conceptual and political inevitability of art making, as well as a love for repetition, daily mark-making, and long walks in the woods. She frequently collaborates with other visual artists, dancers, sound artists, and poets on projects that push the boundaries of traditional art forms.
Nowinski is a full time instructor in drawing at Manchester Community College in CT and a Visiting Lecturer at Smith College in MA. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and internationally, and she has received numerous grants for her contributions to the arts.
