Mary Michael Shelley - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent March 22, 2010

Ongoing Show: Solo Artist Retrospective at the Cayuga Museum, Auburn NY. Instead of a slide show, instead I'll give two walking/talking tours of the exhibit on Saturday March 27, at 1 PM and 3 PM. This show features works from four decades of my work as an artist. If you're in the area, come on up to Auburn on March 27.

Article on my work: Here's a link to the article (now online) I wrote for Voices, the journal of New York Folklore society.

I've got a new booth location (booth #3) at the Ithaca Farmer's Market. I start the 2010 Farmers' Market season mid April!

Blog, blog, blog. Please tell others about my blog.
