Margery Gosnell-Qua is a painter and ceramicist who lives on the east end of Long Island. She received an MFA in Painting and an MS in Art History from Pratt Institute in 1996, where she traveled abroad to study Painting in Tucany and Art History in Venice, Italy. Ms. Gosnell-Qua worked as an assistant to painter Mary Buckley (Professor Emerita, Pratt’s 1992 Institute Distinguished Professor), where she documented Buckley’s colorist sensibility and artistic discovery.

Gosnell-Qua paints in oils and watercolors, representing her experience. Her process begins by sketching and painting small studies from life and from memory. In successive studies the artist seeks out her internalized experience of her subject, which is often landscape, people, interiors.

Ms. Gosnell-Qua’s paintings and prints are in private collections in the US and in Europe. Her awards include the “Art League of Long Island Award,” 2001, given at the Annual L.I. Artist’s Exhibit at the Heckscher Museum, Huntington, NY. Ms. Gosnell-Qua is an instructor of art and art history at Suffolk Community College.
