Go see the latest by Rosemarie FIore!

Richmonder's might remember the name Rosemarie Fiore having seen her work in many shows over the years at Ada Gallery. Her ceramic sculptures of Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner doing battle amongst grand desert panoramas was pretty unforgettable. or her Firework drawings or her Gun Rubbings or her Scrambler project (ada helped fund this project which was exhibited at Grand Arts in KC, MO) Well, the fireworks artwork won out over her many action mediums used over the years, from lawnmower to amusment park rides, and to great effect. Her old work is fantastic as always, but in this new work Rosemarie is now speaking fluently in the language that she's created. GO see her current show at Priska Juschka Fine Art.

See Rosemarie's many past shows at ADA gallery here : here's one at ada, and another, and another
