"DeAnn Prosia's work is an absolute pleasure to behold. One of my favourite artist from a previous era is Martin Lewis and I love the echoing of his works in hers."
Mark Henshaw, former Curator of International Prints of the National Gallery of Australia [1992 - 2011]
"Like Durer, DeAnn Prosia harnesses an infinite number of marks to reveal an extreme, almost hallucinatory focus in her view of city life".
Andrew Raftery, Professor and Juror for the Center for Contemporary Printmaking FootPrint Exhibition, Rhode Island School of Design
Mediums like charcoal, graphite, pen and ink, etching, and some kinds of photography lend themselves to the black and white idiom, being essentially grey-scale by default. Many artists in the exhibition clearly use those mediums and visual idioms in their practice, because they have gained assertive mastery in their employment. DeAnn Prosia demonstrate this kind of advanced skills in (her) deeply impressive works.
Shana Nys Dambrot, art critic, curator, and author and Arts Editor for the LA Weekly, speaking about the 2021 Site:Brooklyn online exhibition Black and White
"DeAnn Prosia's 'Harlem - 125th Street Station' is an exquisite line etching...I would think that anyone, whether they recognize the place or not, would be impressed by the virtuosity with which she has depited the place."
Tim Freeman, University of Hawai'i - Hilo
The 2016 Pacific States Biennial North American Exhibition
"Her work is gaining a big audience in America. She's winning prizes, kicking goals. Her work is very technically detailed - usually etchings and monocolor (black and white)... definitely very powerful."
Cheryl Hannah, Gallery Owner, fYRE GALLERY, Braidwood, Australia
"Fine art printmaking requires technical brilliance made more dramatic by the use of black and white. By contrast, the versatility seen in the artist's appealing watercolors are visually colorful and bucolic. This combination of work makes for a most interesting collection."
Julie Feingold, Owner of Arundel Farm Gallery
"When you stand in front of DeAnn L. Prosia's etchings, sometimes you long for a magnifying glass. Her views of the city are so finely drawn and rich in detail that the first fleeting glance is hardly enough to grasp them."
Martina Koch, Mainzer Rhein-Zeitung (Mainz Rhine Newspaper)
"Her Interpretations of reality radiate joie de vivre (joy of living) and cheerful euphoria, without seeming too flashy, despite their rich abundance of color... she achieves an enormous wealth of detail and coveys reality in a colorful dream world."
Eva Szulkowski, Mainzer Rhein-Zeitung (Mainz Rhine Newspaper), speaking about Prosia's watercolors.
"As the Curator of the gallery at the Municipal Center in Newtown, CT, I have worked with many artists. I have never, however, worked with an artist as proficient and energentic in promoting her work as DeAnn... (she) is professional, informative and accessible. She is a pleasure to work with".
Laura E. Lerman
Chairman, Newtown Cultural Arts Commission
Curator, Newtown Municipal Gallery
"The incredible detail of this etching (speaking of "Under the Elevated") and the interesting play of light and dark make this a striking piece of work. The craft of the execution, the artisitic composition and interpretation bring us into this work and makes us want to linger and explore."
Clayton Buchanan, Painter and Graphic Artist, Newburgh, NY
"Disciplined craftsmenship, controlled values with powerful use of lines and shapes."
