Title: Umbrellas

Size: 16 x 20

Mary has loved being behind the lens since the age of 9 when she got her first Kodak
Brownie camera. Her focus in fine art photography is to capture the absurd, obvious,
decay, and beauty that others do not see. B/W, color, HDR, light, dark – there is always
something to be captured.
Mary’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the region. Awards have been
received from The Flinn Gallery in Greenwich and the Rowayton Arts Center. Her work
has also been shown at The Katonah Museum, The New Britain Museum of American
Art, The Fairfield Museum and History Center, The Bendheim Gallery, Ridgefield Guild
of Artists, Westport Arts Center, Carriage Barn, Soho Photo Gallery, Ferguson Library,
Wilton Library, Ridgefield Library and is in many private collections. Her work has also
been published in many newspapers and magazines. Presently, she is a long time Board
member and Past President of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and is a member of the
Westport Arts Center, Westport Arts Collective, Rowayton Arts Center, and the Carriage
Barn. She is a curator at the Kershner Gallery in Fairfield and also is the Co-Organizer of
the Ridgefield Shutterbugs photography group which meets on a monthly basis. She has
been a juror at the Tree Festival at the Lounsbury House in Ridgefield and a juror at the
annual Bruce Museum Fine Arts Festival in Greenwich. She is also a fundraiser for the
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Fairfield County.

Artist Statement
I express my artistic vision through photography and view the world as a visual treat with
its colors, textures, patterns and abstractions. Behind the lens is the base negative that
transforms and metamorphizes into the song of what my heart sees. The computer has
transformed photography into a revolutionary art form with all of its complexities.

Mary has lived in Ridgefield for over twenty years and can be reached at
