This edition of ART NOTES features ROXIE MUNRO

ROXIE MUNRO has been part of Marin-Price Galleries for about 24 years. Her style is distinctive and recognizable as uniquely Munro.
Roxie creates oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings, primarily cityscapes, which are exhibited widely in the US in galleries and museums. Roxie's work is in numerous private, public, and corporate collections. Many are views from the roof of her sky-lighted loft studio in Long Island City, New York, just across the East River from her home in mid-Manhattan.
Roxie Munro studied at the University of Maryland, the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore), earned a BFA in Painting from the University of Hawaii, attended graduate school at Ohio University (Athens), and received a Yaddo Fellowship in Painting. She lectures in museums, schools, libraries, conferences, and teaches in workshops.

  Roxie Munro, American Author/Illustrator
What you probably do not know is that Roxie grew up in southern Maryland, by the Chesapeake Bay. When she was six, she won first prize in a county-wide contest for a painting of a bowl of fruit, the start of a life-long career as a working artist. For a while after college, she freelanced in Washington, DC, as a television courtroom artist. It was great training for life drawing, concentration under pressure, and making deadlines. Clients included WUSA-TV, CBS, the Washington Post, and the Associated Press. In 1980 she moved to New York City, when The New Yorker magazine started buying her painting for covers; she's had fourteen published, and they've used many ink drawings.

In the mid-1980s, Roxie started creating children's books, which she writes and illustrates. Her first book, The Inside-Outside Book of New York City, won a prestigious New York Times Best Illustrated Award and was chosen by Time magazine as one of the Best of the Year. She's gone on to publish more than forty award-winning nonfiction books, and three interactive "Roxie" apps for the iPad. Her books are about architecture, cities, nature, and concepts, like quirky ABC books, mazes, lift-the-flap paper-engineered books, and more. She also has created giant kid-sized stage set designs for KIWi (Kids Interactive Walk-In) Storybooks, as well as nine apps built to work with them. Her next book, Do What You Love, about art works owned by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, will be out in August 2017.
