‘Swim to New Waters: In the Studio with Artist Mariam Memarsadeghi’ Presentation Will Be on Zoom on Thursday, May 11

Swim to New Waters: In the Studio with Artist Mariam Memarsadeghi will take a deep dive into her vibrant and expressive work in an online presentation of Silver Spring Town Center, Inc. from 7-8 p.m. on Thursday, May 11.

Mariam loved to make art as a child in Iran. She relishes walking and driving to take in sights and has always been a doodler. Her abstract paintings are rooted in the natural world of wildflowers, woods, streams, oceans, big skies and mountains. They can also evoke futuristic space voyages and dreamscapes. Pencil line drawings are a regular feature. Her works are heavily saturated with color and often inspired by childhood whimsy.

Most are a combination of drawing and brush stroke, with some pieces featuring mixed media and paper collage.

Mariam studies with abstract artist Calvin Edward Ramsburg at the Delaplaine Arts Center in Frederick. She grew up in Frederick after migrating to the U.S. from Iran when she was 7 during the 1979 revolution. Her father and many of her father’s friends are architects with a love of art.
