We are very pleased to have Mary Sokolowsky return to Gallery Night as one of our June Celebrity Guides.
Mary in her own words,
For most of my life, I worked with language. But then a revelation came. It was something like what Georgia O’Keeffe says:
“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.”
My artistic practice embraces chaotic Dionysian life-force even as it desires an underlying Apollonian sense of order.
These twin energies found their way into my latest long-term project, a series of icons representing Mary of Nazareth using found board and latex house paint.
I currently teach writing and popular culture at the New England Institute of Technology.
