Marguerite Chadwick - Juner @ Village Gallery

The Village Gallery welcomes June’s Artist of the Month, Marguerite Chadwick-Juner.

Marguerite is a life-long professional artist. She attended the High School of Art & Design in NYC and won a full scholarship to Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, also in NYC, where she earned her B.F.A. and was awarded the A.A. Lowe Fund Award.

She has made a living in the arts via illustration, graphic arts and her paintings. She was chosen to create a ceiling mural for Ted Turner’s weather station on Thames Street in Newport, RI during the America’s Cup competitions there. Over the years, she has been commissioned to create many other murals in clients’ homes.

Marguerite was born and raised on City Island, NY and moved to Oriental full time just a few years ago with her husband, Peter.

Growing up in the nautical community of City Island has influenced her work and she is known for her maritime scenes. She painted mainly in watercolor until she developed a multi media technique using acrylics and oil pastels about 30 years ago which she believes is unique to her. Since that time she has branched out and revisits oils when the subject matter seems to her to call for it.
