Mary-Ann's Face Up exhibition will be on display in Gallery 127 during September and will feature her unusual leather work. Official Opening of her exhibition will take place on Sunday 9 September, with light refreshments from 2:00pm.
Mary-Ann lives in a small country town called Arnold. Before children she studied graphic art at Caulfield and then after moving to the country 35 years ago and the children were at school she went back to TAFE and did a two year Advanced Certificate in Leather work (which was the only one of its kind in Australia).
Her love of the versatility of leather lead her to branch out and concentrate on using it as an art form and to promote leather as a beautiful textural natural medium that one can create original art with.
She has also diversified over the past 10 years and after studying the human face has used that subject in a variety of different mediums to depict expressions, moods and nationalities in printmaking, recycled materials, leather, ceramics, wood and metal.
Most of her work takes on a primitive aspect with designs influenced by the indigenous cultures around the world.
