Maryjean Viano Crowe uses materials in unique ways to create large-scale photographic tableaux, artist books, mixed media constructions, and light box shrines. Her work has been exhibited nationally, and was the subject of a feature article in Popular Photography in 1992. Included in numerous museum collections, including the Polaroid International Collection and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, Crowe received a 1995 National Endowment for the Arts, and a 1987 Massachusetts Artists Foundation Fellowship, a grant for which she was a three time Finalist. Among the museums where her work has been exhibited are the De Cordova, Danforth and Fuller Museums regionally, and nationally at the Southeast Museum of Photography in Florida, Artemesia Gallery in Chicago and Light Impressions in San Francisco. Her work is featured in Altered Books and Collaborative Journals, The Complete Book of Alternative Processes, and most recently in Mixed Media: Collage by Quarry Press. She is represented by Clark Gallery, Lincoln, Massachusetts.
