Folk Art Mary - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent December 4, 2011

Next Saturday (December 10, 2011) find me at the Ithaca Holiday Artist Market, 11 AM to 5 PM. The show takes place at the Women's Community Building, 100 West Seneca Street (corner of Cayuga and Seneca Streets), Ithaca, NY.

Consider Art as a gift: The holiday gift giving season is here. Buying art is a gift for that special someone but also a support of my artwork. When you buy art you give me the time to create more. Support the arts, buy artwork.

Farmers' Market: Despite the economy, I had a good 2011 season at the Ithaca Farmers Market. Thanks to all of you who came by my booth, purchased my work, or just told me which piece you liked best. I'm done for the year now, back to my winter studio.  In the summer I do a lot of carving at the market, letting unfinished work build up at my shop. In the winter I paint and finish up all the half done work from the summer, take on commissions, start work for the upcoming market season.

Commissions: I'm currently gathering orders for commissioned special order pieces to work on over the winter months.

Slotin Folk Art Auction: I was pleased to hear that at a recent Slotin auction one of my pieces sold for a reasonable price.

Recent art themes: I'm drawn right now to the theme of people in nature - people working in harmony with nature, people and nature in conflict.

Below are a number of pictures that I've completed in the last four months. I finally posted at my website.  Click on them and they will enlarge.
