"Watershed", a solo exhibition of 50+ original plein air and studio oil paintings by Mary, will showcase the beauty, relevance, and character of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway and surrounding watershed.
"Long ago, I fell in love with the abstract shapes of the valley: the silhouette of the white pines against a vast sky, the contrast of natural stands of birch groves against the deep forest, the musical structural rhythms formed by the river pressing against its banks. I love its story, the historical and geological narrative stored in the layers of rocky sentinels lining the river. I care now more than ever that this local, thriving, wild, and scenic watershed be preserved and protected." ~ Mary
This exhibition draws upon the powerful tools of Expressive Realism to tell shared stories of our love affair with the river to future generations and to support the mission of Wild Rivers Conservancy (formerly the St. Croix River Association).
25% of each sale will be donated to Wild Rivers Conservancy in support of their mission.
Through our partnership, we seek to inspire a deeper awareness of, connection with, and appreciation for our wild and scenic waterways. Take home your favorite work of art and support the Riverway!
