Since 1978, Mr. Josloff’s artwork has been exhibited in galleries throughout the metropolitan NY area. His artwork has also been included in private and public collections. In 2004 his painting, Boy on a Scooter at the Hotel Deville, was purchased for the prestigious permanent collection of the Art Students League. A touring exhibition of select works from the ASL permanent collection entitled, The League Then and Now, displayed Marc Josloff’s painting alongside those of Georgia O’Keefe, Will Barnet, Norman Rockwell, William Merritt Chase and other notables.

As a photographer, Mr. Josloff was an international award winner in PhotoLife Magazine, Canada. He has also received a “Best in Black and White” in a PFLI (Photographic Federation of Long Island) “Tops” Competition. He has been awarded best-in-show, best in color and best in black and white awards in numerous other LI juried exhibitions. Marc is currently on the board of directors of the Long Island Center of Photography and is their principal facilitator.
Marc Josloff is a representational artist who enjoys reducing images to their essential elements, impressionistically, while mixing in, as he says, “a jigger of mystery and a twist of soul.”
