American Rhododendron Society – NY Chapter

Mary Ahern, a former board member of the NY ARS will present “From the Garden to the Wall”, a program which describes the process of creating Art, whether in a painting on canvas or as a garden and planting design.
As an Artist with a degree in Fine Art with a focus on Painting, one in Ornamental Horticulture with a specialty in Landscape Design and a Certificate in Botanical Illustration from the New York Botanical Gardens, Mary brings decades of experience to her field.
Mary’s paintings reflect her passion for gardens. The colors, the textures, the lighting and the pathways tell stories of personal creative visions. She is inspired by her own extensive woodland garden in Northport as well as the many public and private gardens around Long Island.
