Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent September 17, 2018

 

I will continue at my Ithaca Farmers' Market booth #3 into November, weather dependent.

UPCOMING SHOW:
Schedule conflict prevented me from being at the Bedminster Traditional Artisan Show this year. Instead I'll be a participant in a six artist pop up show at Cane Farm Furniture, Rosemont, New Jersey - October 19, 20 and 21, 2018.
I'm pretty excited about doing this show and hope you can make it to the event. Although Rosemont is in New Jersey, it is very close geographically to where the Bedminster show has been held.

I hope to get into a show in Hudson, New York that takes place over Thanksgiving weekend. I am still waiting to hear if I am accepted. Stay tuned on this one.

TAKING ORDERS FOR COMMISSIONS:
Winter is the time when I take on COMMISSIONS, or special order pieces. Now is the time for you to speak up, run an idea by me, get in line for a commission.

SOCIAL MEDIA: Look for me under the name Folk Art Mary on instagram or facebook to see frequent updates.

WORK IN PROGRESS: I have about 8 unfinished carvings that I have begun to paint, all of which will be in the $500ish price range.
