Mary Michael Shelley - Carved and Painted Folk Pictures

Email update sent June 30, 2010

July Show at the Titus Gallery starts in two Days: This show will feature my painted woodcarvings on the theme of live now and enjoy life. Show opening is July 2, 2010 at the Titus Gallery, Ithaca, NY (222 East State Street on the Commons). Come on down to the Ithaca commons and see my work and the lovely work of Susan Titus. July 2nd is First Friday Gallery Night of Ithaca when you can see the work of many other artists at 14 other downtown Ithaca locations. It'll be a happening evening.

Art Trail Group Show: Speaking of happenings, I'll also have one piece in the Greater Ithaca Art Trail show - also opening on July 2, 2010 - at the CAP (Community Arts Partnership) gallery space (171 East State Street). This show features 25 Art Trail artists in a group show until the end of the summer.

Summer artist market takes place on Friday July 30, 2010. I'll be there at booth #3, my new Ithaca Farmers Market booth. More on this in a future email.

Remember I demonstrate carving at the Ithaca Farmers Market on Saturdays and most Sundays.
