"Painter and curator Basha Maryanska, has once again gathered a stylistically varied group of artists colleagues in a livelly group exhibition called "ANTIDOTE".
Among Maryanska's own works in the exhibition, two standouts are "Welcome Home" and "Smile of the River". The former is a magical cityscape centering on the facades of an urban skyline, it's myriad windows glowing like decorations on Christmas tree. The later depicts firry reflected sunlight melting like egg yolk on a body of water amid multicolored linear swirls and spatters that dazzle the eye like fireworks"…..

"One of the prevalent tendencies in "Configurations" an exhibition curated by Basha Maryanska, is a species of allusive semiabstraction with referents in the visible weld….
"Then there is artist/curator Basha Maryanska, who employs emotive color applied with a luminous glazing technique to capture how the mysteries of nature in the city as seen in her radiant painting "Walking Through Manhattan" where the brightly lighted windows of buildings are juxtaposed with more abstract rectangular forms and explosions of verdant foliage and trees to highly poetic effect.

…" Another gifted abstract painter Basha Maryanska, appears even more directly beholden to nature in "Towards Light" where she accomplishes the seeming alchemical feat of evoking the most ethereal of subjects in the material substance of pigment, with shimmering showers of lminous golden yellow strokes streaming down like heavenly beams."

“We have been very fortunate to have Basha as an artist participant in several of our themed art exhibitions during 2011. In all cases she brings to each exhibition outstanding artwork and always with a unique interpretation of the gallery's theme for that month. â€¨â€¨We hope that Basha will continue to be a participant in our future art exhibitions as her artworks add so much to the presentation of our shows. â€¨â€¨Any gallery would be privileged to have Basha Maryanska as a part of their gallery!”December 5, 2011

“November 27,2011. â€¨To Whom it may concern:
I had the good fortune to meet Basha Maryanska last year. She applied for membership in the WAH Salon, the Artist Club of the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center. I was the coordinator of the Salon for the past thirteen years. Basha was accepted for membership based on her beautiful paintings. The Center has an annual Salon exhibition every January. I had e-mail correspondence with Basha for a few months before the show regarding her paperwork and submissions prior to meeting her. I found her to be responsive and professional. She submitted her artwork and contributed to making the Salon exhibition a success. Basha has been a very responsible and helpful artist member. I was also the curator for exhibitions for the WAH Center at the Amarin Cafe. I have scheduled Basha for a solo exhibition at the Cafe for September 2012. Once again, my experience has been one of dealing with a professional reliable artist. â€¨I have to add that in addition to her professional traits, Basha possesses a positive and upbeat personality that makes it a pleasure to work with her. I am happy to recommend her for any position that she applies for in the art word. â€¨Sincerely, â€¨Carol Quint â€¨artist and curator â€¨718-522-9078” November 27, 2011

I have known Basha Maryanska for the past seven years as a co member and co curator at New Century Artists. â€¨Ms. Maryanska has participated in member exhibitions and curated several International art exhibitions at New Century Artists. She is a extremely talented artist, and exceptional curator. Her last exhibition that was held in the gallery September 2011 received rave reviews. â€¨Ms. Maryanska is a powerhouse with an unending source of energy, she creates her own artwork and is a mentor and promoter for other artists. She travels internationally showing both her work and the work of fellow artists several times a year. â€¨As a curator Ms. Maryanska locates various worldwide venues and makes certain that the work gets through customs and arrives on time for the installation of the exhibition. She installs the work and takes down the work with a limited amount of participation from the other artists. â€¨I believe that Ms. Maryanska is a highly qualified candidate for any position she may pursue in the art world including educator, artist or curator. I would highly recommend her based on my positive experiences of working with her on numerous projects over the past seven years at New Century Artists. â€¨â€¨Sincerely, â€¨Fritz (Steven) Weiss â€¨Member & Curator - New Century Artists â€¨Board Member & Curator - Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) â€¨Member & Curator - 2nd Floor Gallery â€¨President, Curator - Creative Photographers Guild & CPG Gallery â€¨718-356-0817 â€¨917-881-1947” November 23, 2011

To Whom It May Concern:
I have known Basha Maryanska for the past seven years. She is a member of New Century Artists as well as a guest curator of International art exhibitions.
In that period of time Ms. Maryanska has participated in member exhibitions and curated several International art exhibitions at New Century Artists. Not only is she an extremely talented artist, but she is an exceptional curator too. Her last exhibition that was held in the gallery September 2011 received rave reviews.
Ms. Maryanska can be described as a powerhouse with an unending source of energy. She is capable of creating her own artwork and being a major promoter of other artists as well. She travels the globe showing both her own work and fellow artists several times a year. This is a massive undertaking and requires a highly motivated individual who possesses the traits of perseverance, patience, and dedication.
As a curator Ms. Maryanska locates the various worldwide venues and makes certain that the work gets through customs and arrives on time for the installation of the exhibition. She installs the work and takes down the work with a limited amount of participation from the other artists.
I believe that Ms. Maryanska is a highly qualified candidate for any position she may pursue in the art world including educator, artist or curator. I would highly recommend her based on my positive experiences of working with her on numerous projects over the past seven years at New Century Artists.
