TRANSITIONS is a Marcene Glover residency exploring the Highline to Highline track, From Riverwalk Pittsburgh Highline to Manhattan Highline, with Johnstown as the central hub. Marcene paints in NYC, Johnstown, and Pittsburgh, on the theme of Cultivating the Journey. Collaborative segments of this project are Journey Squared, and Pathways.
Space as Muse Residency project is continuing through the 2022 season. Artists, writers, and musicians spend time immersed in two different spaces, responding to each unique environment. Those spaces are Oasis and Retreat, the suites on floor 3 of the ArtHouse. The project will culminate into an interdisciplinary exhibit with support materials considering the influence our surroundings have on our creative expression.
The conclusion of Space as Muse will kick off the sequel project Journey Squared. This fine art exhibit and collaborative project connects local to global neighbors, reflecting on our personal and shared journeys as they are affected by implicit bias, and how we move forward together. Outreach programming can accompany segments of the project.

Seven fellow US Artists, along with Marcene, exhibit in France, through the ArtHouse6 Crosswind fine arts mentorship project. The cultural arts project is titled Made In New York. We are thrilled that the host organization, Avelan'Arts was able to make health safety adjustments to still complete this project during the pandemic!
Cocooning Series: During the carona shutdown period, Marcene painted in 2 isolation residencies, first at the ArtLoft7 studio, and then a second solo residency at the ArtHouse6 studios. "The isolation brought out a layer in my work...sensitivity to the hibernation process, with anticipation of our emergence."
Some of that work exhibited and sold in France and in Norway.
Global Tales IV exhibit by 8 artists in 5 countries, is the first exhibit at Off the Rails Gallery in ArtHouse6...the exhibit was postponed in 2020, to open after the pandemic crisis has subsided. In 2021, the show exhibited successfully. Out of this grew the solo show featuring Irene Christenson, one of the Global Tales artists. Irene gave the first ArtTalk at Off the Rails Gallery, for the first official Tuscan Room Salon Fusion gathering, which was very well received.
