Watermark is proud to announce Mary Therese as the artist behind our first exhibit of 2015. A painter of many surfaces, Mary Therese shifts her canvas from paper to fabric with her most recent passion of creating silk paintings illuminated with light. Using the ancient art form of batik, she draws with dyes and hot bees wax to slowly build layers of rich color on the fabric. The exhibit at Watermark is titled “Flying in Circles” and will include her scarves, shawls, and large-scale silk fabric paintings.
“Flying in Circles” opens February 6, with a reception from 5-7 p.m. There will be a 6 p.m. presentation with Mary Therese which will include a creative movement element, bringing bodies with the wearable art pieces together within the installation of large silk paintings. Don’t miss the chance to witness this unique creative opportunity!
