Art at the Library: Mary Mraz
October 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Oil painter Mary Mraz started painting 21 years ago. What started as a part-time hobby has since become an enjoyable passion. She is a retired Nurse Practitioner who moved from Philadelphia to Aroostook County in Northern Maine in the 1970s, where she was inspired by the vast landscape of the region and the county’s never-ending horizon.
The current exhibit depicts scenes from her wanderings as she sails, hikes, skis, and travels through the amazing seasonal beauty that New England and Canada have to offer. She has participated in a workshop with Tom Hughes en plein air, as well as one with Bjorn Runquist on painting water. Currently she is working with oils, working both en plein air and at her studio in Freeport.
