The Way Home Opening ReceptionFriday Nov 17 6:00pm
150 East 8th Street
Mary Ann, a Michigan artist who has exhibited nationally, from Sante Fe to Chicago, from Grand Rapids to Kansas City, was born and raised on a cash crop farm in rural mid-Michigan. She enjoyed farm life, and loved to be outside riding her horse, doing chores or working in the fields. Winter days were often spent in the farm shop with her father, a gifted builder, who taught Mary Ann how to weld and work with wood. He would often take a piece of chalk and draw out plans on the cement floor. This is where Mary Ann’s love for making things began, and it is this life rooted in the earth, steeped in reading the fields, and living in kinship with the land and all the beings that inhabit it, that gives her magical soaring vision its gravitas.
Join us for the opening of Mary Ann’s exhibition on November 17 from 6 to 8pm. The exhibition and opening are free and open to the public.
