Miriam Dougenis

Miriam “Molly” Dougenis is an American artist residing in Sag Harbor, New York. Her contemporary realist compositions in oil, pastel, or watercolor often depict farmhouses, water and floral scenes, as well as local establishments and landscape scenes evocative of the New York region. The work is realistically rendered yet always distinguished by her subjective, expressive take on her view of the world. Her work may be reminiscent of Fairfield Porter and other long Island greats. While her sensibility might have been influenced by that of Edward Hopper, her art is deeply and uniquely her own. An outstanding realist painter and highly-skilled watercolorist in her own right, Dougenis received her training at Hunter College, Long Island University and the Arts Student League.
Over the years, Dougenis’ works have received awards and have been shown at museums and galleries on the East Coast, including the Heckscher Museum, Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, Christie’s Art Center and Reboli Center for Art and History in Stony Brook. Her compositions, be they still lives or landscapes, could evoke those of Andrew Wyeth, as they capture intimate details, beauty, and finesse of everyday objects.
In 2020, Dougenis, pursuant to the New York Arts & Cultural Affairs law governing relationships between artists and dealers, won a court judgment against her former gallerist for his failing to return many of her original works. Also in 2020, Dougenis participated in the online art exhibition featuring the work of women artists, including Barbara Haddon, Whitney Hansen, and Marcella A. Yenick.
Dougenis’s works are in numerous public and private collections.
