Dellamarie Parrilli is a versatile artist with an accomplished background. Heralded by the Las Vegas Press as a “triple threat” because of her talent as a singer, dancer and actress, she now creates paintings that are “inspirational, illuminating and transcendent of the ordinary.” In a recent essay about her work, Ed McCormack, Editor-in-Chief of Gallery & Studio and former writer for the Village Voice and Rolling Stone, stated that Dellamarie Parrilli “possesses a natural fluidity that enhances the immediacy of her canvases immeasurably, imbuing her compositions with rhythmic vigor and vitality.” Nancy di Bennedetto, lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art stated, “She brings a breath of fresh air to the contemporary art scene… Technically, she is a born master of her medium.”
The recipient of numerous awards including the Richard W. and Wanda Gardner Memorial Award for her painting “Searching For The Divine”, Best of show for “Rhapsody In Blue” Sam Gilliam Juror, and the Merit Award from Union Street Gallery, Chicago, Parrilli has exhibited widely throughout the U.S. including many solo exhibitions and prestigious group exhibitions. Parrilli’s work is included in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. including those of Samuel Ramey, world renowned bass, Lucinda Williams, recording artist; Lt. Governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend; Penny Singleton (voice of Wilma Flintstone); Donald Casey, Dean, DePaul University School of Music, and Cabrini Medical Center, NY.
Upcoming exhibitions include The ’07 Florence Biennale Contemporary Art Exhibtion in Florence Italy, as well as solos at Ezair in NYC.
