Mary Ahern

Not Just Another Pretty Flower

On view September 2 through October 29

The subject matter for most of Mary Ahern’s work originates in the gardens surrounding her studio. The lessons learned from studying the synergistic communities of plants and other species are the central stimulus
for the creation of her work. Whether painting landscapes or singular flower portraits, the essence of the work
is musing on purpose and meaning in nature. “As a passionate gardener, my art is as intricately entwined as the gardens surrounding my studio. Cultivating and tending these gardens is the first stage of creating the art that grows in my studio.”
