Posted 16 Oct 2018: Art at VGPL for November: Mary Gray McGee

The Vista Grande Public Library (VGPL) will host Santa Fe artist, Mary Gray McGee, November 1- 29 in the library gallery. "From Plate to Print to Collage" features one collagraph plate to show the process, three collagraph prints and six monograph prints (photo-Crossroads, Mary Gray McGee).

McGee’s artistic background is varied. Her work evolved from the potter’s wheel to collage which includes watercolor, quilting, photography, printmaking, letterpress and book arts. She learned many techniques at the Santa Fe Community College. The artist "printed with abandon at the SFCC for many years, and now is exploring manipulating the work, combining it with other materials, considering the design and developing it further into resolved pieces of art.”

The public is invited to meet the artist Friday, November 2 at a library reception between 5 and 7 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

The VGPL exhibition series is for the enjoyment of patrons when visiting the library located south of the El Dorado Community School, on 14 Avenida Torreon, Santa Fe, NM 87508. Library hours are 10-6 Tu-F and 10-4 on Sat. Exhibition art will be on sale by the artist and available to the purchaser after the close of the show. The library will receive a sales commission benefiting operations and library programming.
