Marlena Marallo’s home gallery of prints, collages, installations & ceramic mosaics

Sales, Exhibitions & Commissions Welcome

Marlena is the co-founder and artistic director of Arm-of-the-Sea. She also works in other media, including handmade prints and ceramic mosaics. Her art draws inspiration from visible and sub-visible pattern languages: oceanic diatoms, Mozarabic illuminated manuscripts, Cambrian-era fossils, Shiko Munakata prints, cellular physiology, Persian rugs, photosynthesis, Greco-Roman mosaics, migratory birds, Meso-American pottery, and the shape-shifting dance of light upon the water. Her prints are featured in all Arm-of-the-Sea programs, and a number of publications including those of the Hudson River Almanac, Ruth Mott Fund, and Scenic Hudson.
