Mary Kane, A contemporary artist, whose works will be on display in the Boyer Gallery of The Hill School Center for the Arts from January 12th to February 23rd.
She will talk about the works in her current one-woman show at the Boyer Gallery of The Hill School, about how her style developed and the process of creating her paintings, which to quote her is, “Compose … Simplify … Eliminate the unnecessary … Calm down … Open up …Stop judging it … be decisive … Don’t erase … Keep it fresh … STOP!!”
So … When is the painting finished? Come learn her perspective on that question.
Mary Kane, an award-winning artist, began painting at an early age, always loving the patterns she saw in nature and thinking outside the box. She obtained a BFA from Ohio State and continued her studies at Virginia Commonwealth University and then the American University. After teaching art in public and private schools, she moved to Philadelphia to continue her art studies and to layer on more experience and gain confidence in painting while moving from realism to abstraction.
