Margaret Warren


Margaret Warren is a native of Galveston, Texas, and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.  Her art study includes work at S.M.U. and at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  Milford Zornes was an early teacher and mentor.  More recent continuing education concentrating on color and design includes work with Wolf Kahn and Alberto Mijangos.

Margaret has earned Signature Status in Texas Watercolor Society, Southwestern Watercolor Society and the Nevada Watercolor Society.  She is a regular prize winning exhibitor in local and regional shows, most recently taking the San Antonio Art League Museum Purchase Prize for 2001 and the Guadalupe Watercolor Group's James Avery Purchase Prize in 2002.  Her work has been featured in one and two person shows in Dallas and San Antonio galleries each year for the past several years and in the San Antonio Art League Contemporary Art Month Invitational for 2003.

Milton Avery, Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Diebenkorn are favorite artists.  Following in the tradition of these and others, Margaret uses simple shapes, expressive color and flattened space to talk about the enduring power of chosen subjects.  She uses a variety of watermedia on paper, board or canvas.  Recent series have included western landscapes, New Mexico churches, cypress patterns along the Guadalupe, cows in Hill Country pastures, big ships at Galveston Harbor, and impressions following September 11.

The Nueva Street Gallery in San Antonio, Texas, has represented her since 1992.  Gallery Soco in Austin, Texas and the 1550 Gallery in Kerrville, Texas are also currently showing her work.  Her work has been included in recent issues of Watermedia Focus and Artist's Magazine as well as in Color and Light for the Watercolor Painter by Christopher Schink.

Artist's Statement

My current work both draws on old impressions of Galveston harbor and reflects current happenings in my world and in the larger world.  My "Waterfront" series is drawn from memories of cryptic messages seen in wharf graffiti, and from numbers and letters seen on the big ships in harbor, has evolved this year into a consideration of chaos both the danger and the promise.  The new series is called "Windows", a look at the world post Nine Eleven.
