This is a guest post by me, because Mary is just too busy sewing to get to the computer, but we had some incredible news, followed by some even more incredible news.
So we had to let you about the first one so we can give the second one time to settle in. Trust me, as cool as this story is, what will follow is just as impressive.
Mary’s work is in a gallery. They picked up two of her Lincoln pieces and a barn. This one:
Which is huge (about 2×4 IIRC) and then the smaller one, which is one of my favorite artworks she has produced:
I don’t have a picture of the barn piece handy, but I’m sure Mary does. Will get that on later.
This represents a major milestone for Mary, a very big deal. I think the importance can’t be understated. When someone asks her where they can see her work she can give them an address. I would put this up there with getting published as an author. You still have a lot of work ahead of you, but you’ve crested a certain plateau that carries with it a level of respect and accomplishment that is significant. Now it’s not just you (and your fan-boy husband) that say you are an artist, it is a gallery that is using some of their resources and precious space to endorse that status as well.
Mary constantly makes me proud, but the reason I’m writing this now is because she would have waited, and this may have been eclipsed a bit by her other news, and I didn’t want that to happen. This is too important.
The gallery is Artworks on York St right in the center of Gettysburg, PA. You can see why (besides her incredible talent) they’d like her Lincoln pieces.
So, stay tuned for yet another announcement for a juried show she’s in, but for now, if you make it to Gettysburg, stop by Artworks.
