Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent April 22, 2013


* I'm back at my booth at the Ithaca Farmers Market, and here is my latest carving video to celebrate that fact. The Ithaca Farmers Market has Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday Markets - but please take note that in 2013 I WILL ONLY BE AT THE SATURDAY MARKETS.

* Find me May 11 and 12, 2013 (Mothers Day Weekend) at the, Saturday hours 10 am- 5 pm, Sunday 10 am to 4:30 pm. There will be a great bunch of exhibitors at the show, many of whom also were at the Bedminster Land Conservancy's 2012 Traditional Artisans Craft Show.

* Last week the Ithaca Times published a nice article about my carved and painted pictures. Thanks to Edward Hower for writing the article.

* Besides the finished work shown below, I've got a number of new pieces in process, including some new small cat pieces, a small diner scene, and a smile and don't expect so much picture.
