Artist Statement

"I believe that these images, dredged forth from eldritch unconscious, have significance, but am wary of attaching specific events, emotions, or memories to them. Titles are often problematic. Once they exist as a physical visual representation, they have become something 'other,' and open to more or less infinite interpretation. 

The end all and be all of their existence, their best possible purpose, is to make you feel something."


Artist Reception
An artist reception  will be held Friday, August 11, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. in the Rotunda of City Hall; in conjunction with the Boro Art Crawl (see boroartcrawl.com for more information).  All are welcome and invited to attend this free event.

Mary has lived and painted throughout the United States, and is now based in Tennessee. She is well known for her commissioned portraits in oil. Depending on her client's wishes, Mary paints in a controlled formal manner or in a loosely posed impressionistic style. Often the more impressionistically painted portraits are of casually grouped families at the beach. Her objective is to convey the spirit and personality of her subjects, while maintaining accurate and convincing likenesses. Utilizing a strong design framework, beautiful harmonic color, and masterful paint application, Mary connects with the viewer by creating powerfully expressive paintings that become family treasures.
