Exhibit: Marja Lianko
Marja Lianko was born in Helsinki, Finland. She grew up in a home filled with art as her father was a collector and a latent sculptor. Marja emigrated to the USA soon after high school and received her art education at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, where she later taught printmaking and mixed media for more than two decades.
Much of Marja’s work has been inspired by the nature in her homeland, the vast forests of birches and pine trees, the abundance of color in the short summer and the lack of it during the long winter.
Her work has been exhibited in a number of museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, de Cordova Museum, Fogg Museum, Fuller Museum, Rose Museum, Duxbury Art Complex Museum, Boise Art Museum and Nicolaysen Museum.
She has received grants and fellowships from the New England Foundation for the Arts, Artists Foundation, Ballinglen Arts Foundation and Mellon Foundation. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Fogg Museum, de Cordova Museum as well as in numerous corporations and hospitals.
