“The students at Montserrat are serious and dedicated to challenging themselves. As a teacher, I aim to forge a channel for that self-challenge while building techniques and vocabulary to deepen their understanding of art practices.”
Before Marilu started teaching at Montserrat, she was a visiting artist here, first in 1998, for her exhibition Falling Light, and then in 2001. Her work has been in numerous shows in the northeast, as well as Wisconsin (Wustum Art Museum, Racine), Washington (Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle) and England (Chisenhale Gallery, London). She has exhibited at the former OH&T Gallery and is a member of Boston Sculptors.
Marilu’s work is in collections at Fidelity Investments, Bank of America, Meditech Corporation, and New England Biolabs, and has been reviewed many times in the Boston Globe, as well as in the Philadelphia Enquirer, the Boston Phoenix, the Boston Herald, and in other publications. She has taught at the Massachusetts College of Art, and Curry College, and has been a visiting artist at those schools as well as The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
