Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent July 17, 2016

It's that exciting time of the year once again. The Ithaca Artist Market will showcase 75 artists on Friday July 29, 2 to 8 PM at the Farmers' Market pavilion. Find me demonstrating woodcarving at booth #3. This past winter I made several major pieces of which I am quite proud. If you decide to buy, your purchase will help me pay the plumber. I have several older pieces highly discounted with the intent to move them from my house to yours. Please inquire which ones these are.  

*************

 For those of you within driving distance of eastern Pennsylvania, come see me at the Bedminster Traditional Artisan Show, September 17-18, 2016.

*************

After 43 years of making my carved and painted pictures, artwork keeps flowing out of me. I take pride in improving as a painter. There's never a problem with coming up with ideas. Instead there's just not enough time.

*************

Remember I'm only at the SATURDAY Ithaca Farmers' Market. Don't be shy, come on by!

*************

Consider a gift to you or someone else - anniversary, Christmas, birthday. Discounts apply to some older pieces, please enquire. Buy on time, I do payment plans. And yes, I ship.
