Mara Sfara, is a contemporary sculptor, jeweler, representational painter, multi sensory kinetic artist. Her kinetic sculptures blend traditional artwork with new media creating her own unique fantasy worlds. Sfara’s whimsical Greek mythological bronze sculptures convey a range of moods, humor, and attitudes with which her audience can readily identify. Her positive nature is reflected in her art, in her use of beautiful colors, objects and quixotic, idyllic serene landscapes. Sfara’s works tell stories of human relationships to the self, others and the universe. She studied English, Film Criticism and Fine Arts at the undergraduate level and obtained her Master’s in Art from New York University.
Sfara’s paintings and sculptures are regularly exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide, including shows in England, New York, Massachusetts, Texas, California, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Argentina and Spain. She is in the permanent collections of the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Connecticut, Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, New York and the QCC (CUNY) Art Gallery/Museum, Bayside, NY. In 2013, Sfara’s sculptures and paintings were featured at the opening of a new wing at the historic Westbrook Manor at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum, Great River, NY.
