The Green Dot Show

Posted by Maria VanderMolen on February 23, 2013 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Join me on Preview Thursday, February 28 for the opening of the Green Dot Show.  The show, being held at Jana's Red Room in the Arts Factory, will run the entire month of March.  You can RSVP on Facebook.

Jana's Red Room has hours throughout the week if you miss Preview Thursday or First Friday.  

The Arts Factory is located at 07 East Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89104.


In her new series, Maria VanderMolen took the challenge to design each piece around a large green dot. Her Dimensional Pointillism dot work complements the theme as images evolved. Reiki, Transformation, and Maria's love of the Desert surround and grow from and with the dots. Maria uses fabric, paper, collage, markers, and dimensional paint to create her artwork. A unique combination of works, the Green Dot show runs for the month of March.

I've had the pleasure of becoming part of the Jenny Valdez Gallery and have hung work there since August, 2012.  Jenny Valdez Gallery is located inside the Arts Factory, and features the work of at least 6 different artists.  The gallery if full of colorful, fantastical, and whimsical artwork. 

Each month, they feature a group show.  August was the Dog and Cat Show to benefit local no-kill shelters.  September featured work in the theme, Under the Sea;  I've also included work in both these group shows

New Works - March 2012

Posted by Maria VanderMolen on April 6, 2012 at 12:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I recently completed "Moon Struck".  This elongated painting is done on tie-dyed fabric and shows the large moon glistening on a forest with petite flowers and grasses.


Angel Redux is a recolored, redotted, framed print of the original Angel in a very graphic style which sold years ago.  This has been such a well-selling print, I wanted the opportunity for someone to have the texture of the dots re-born in this reproduction.


Both my new works of art are currently available at Dinosaurs and Roses, Studio #35.  This is my husband Scott and my gallery space.  Hours are 10AM - 5PM M-F, 10AM - 4PM weekends.  Located at the SE corner of Charleston and Jones in Las Vegas, all galleries are upstairs with a fantastic thrift shop below.  25% of my sales are donated to this non-profit.


I hope you will take the time to stop by the Gallery space soon.
