Cogswell Gallery is a family-run business that had always supported up-and-coming artists. Long-time sculptor and artist Marianne Caroselli has been showing her bronzes at Cogswell for nearly 30 years. Now, her daughter, bronze artist Scy Caroselli, has been welcomed into the Cogswell Gallery family.
Born in New Jersey, Marianne began her art career painting before dedicating her full attention and time to her sculpting. While the subject of Marianne’s work ranges from wildlife and southwest themes to the human figure, she is most well known for her lifelike renderings of children. Depicted doing a variety of activities such as fishing, reading and playing with puppies, Caroselli’s children possess the true innocence and playfulness of childhood.
After spending many years with her mother and receiving much encouragement from the family, Scy began her own career as an artist. Like mother like daughter, Scy is also a bronze artist that loves to sculpt children. They work together whenever possible and have even traveled to Italy to study sculpting together. She, however, also sculpts a range of subjects including wildlife and women in the wine country. It is evident in much of her figurative work that she not only loves to express the freedom and adventure that is childhood, but also focuses on the strength and inner beauty of women.
