Danielle Mailer received her BA from Bowdoin College and studied at the New York Studio School and School of Visual arts. In the last decade, she has completed four larger than life, public art pieces permanently installed in Connecticut’s Northwest Corner.
The most ambitious of these is Project Fishtales, a 200x20ft. applied mural installation on the backside of Staples, facing the Naugatuck River. All of these works were made possible in part by three grants from Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, a Berkshire Taconic grant and a Community Foundation Grant. Currently she is working on a commission to create a freestanding 9ft dog and a 5ft cat to be installed on the grounds of “Our Companions”, an animal sanctuary/rehab center, in Ashford Ct. Other public art includes four wall pieces (2010 thru 2014) commissioned by Boston Children’s hospital, Boston Mass. on permanent display in various areas of the hospital.
Mailer has shown in galleries and museums throughout North America. She was honored with a retrospective at the Mattituck Museum (2009) with over 40 works on display. She was also part of a traveling retrospective of Provincetown artists titled “The Tides of Provincetown” produced by The New Britain Museum of American Art.
In 2013 she debuted her Dancing Muse installation at Five Points in the East Gallery. In June 2020 (the height of Covid), The Mattituck Museum invited her (along with five other Connecticut artists), to offer a cyber studio tour showcasing to their members her current work. She is represented by the Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown Mass and also has her own Gallery in her home town Goshen Ct.
Danielle divides her time between making art and teaching art at The Salisbury Boys School in Salisbury Connecticut. She lives with her husband jazz music Peter McEachern, their three adult children who visit often, and little Merlin the beloved and sometimes wicked terrier.
