STORYTELLING THROUGH ART WITH ROXIE MUNRO!
Roxie is the author/illustrator of more than 45 nonfiction, STEM/STEAM, and concept books for children, many using “gamification” to encourage reading, learning, and engagement. Her books have been translated into French, Italian, Dutch, Chinese, and Japanese. She also creates oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, primarily cityscapes, which are exhibited widely in the US in galleries and museums and are held in numerous private, public, and corporate collections. Fourteen of her paintings have been published as covers of The New Yorker magazine.
Born in Texas, and raised in southern Maryland, Roxie studied at the University of Maryland, the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore), earned a BFA in Painting from the University of Hawaii, attended graduate school at Ohio University (Athens), and received a Yaddo Fellowship in Painting. She has been a working artist all her life. Clients included CBS, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press. She also lectures in museums, schools, libraries, conferences, and teaches workshops.
A special collection of Roxie’s art will be on exhibit through the end of 2022, curated by Jude Amsel, Gallery Director of Gold Coast Arts. Drop by the Arts Center Gallery located at 113 Middle Neck Road in Great Neck, or call (516) 829-2570 for more information.
