Maxine Nodel is a versatile, award-winning visual artist who received her B.F.A. from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City. She works in pencil, charcoal, marker, oil, and acrylics and sells her work nationally and internationally. Her work, as a child and teen, was exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and at the Salmagundi Club in NYC. From 2013-2015, her work was on public display outside the DIA in Beacon, NY as part of the Hudson Valley arts initiative, the Beekman Street Artist Banner project. Most recently, Maxine was invited by the Edward Hooper House gallery and museum (June 2018) to give a special gallery talk about her drawing project, Eyes On America. In 2014, Maxine was Artist of the Month at the Edward Hopper House after winning in an international juried small works competition. She was then a featured artist in the Nyack News and Views publication.
Maxine has also exhibited at the Highline Loft Gallery in Chelsea, NY, the Upstream Gallery in Westchester, the Catalyst Gallery in Beacon, the Riverfront Gallery in Yonkers, the Blue Door Gallery in Yonkers where she won first-place for her intricate design drawings in 2015, and at the National Art League (NAL) where she’s won gold medal, first-place, and merit awards for painting and drawing. Maxine also teaches drawing (and soon painting) workshops at the NAL where her father, Norman Nodel, served as the NAL President for over 15 years during the 1960s and 70s.
Maxine is also the founder and former principal of a successful, award-winning, visual arts high school in NYC that she created with a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant. She designed the school to serve economically disadvantaged children in the Bronx who love visual art but lack the grades to enter the city’s specialized art high schools. After serving as an arts educator and public advocate for art education for 32 years, Maxine is finally able to return to her roots of creating art and conducting art workshops for people of all ages!
