FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Digital Artist & Garden Designer, Mary Ahern Creates Art From the Earth to Pixels to Paint.
“From the Garden to the Wall”, a One-Person Art Show at the Harborfields Public Library March 1 – March 29, 2014.
Northport, NY. – February 27, 2014
Mary Ahern, the Northport Garden Artist, has created an Art Form combining the plants with roots in her garden, the pixels in her digital paintings and her breadth of traditional classical painting techniques. With degrees in both Fine Arts and Horticulture, Ahern combines these fields to produce the large-scale, brilliantly colored paintings, which have become her trademark.
Using her own gardens surrounding her studio as inspiration, Ahern is intimately involved in the growth habits and bloom times of all the plant material used as models in her paintings. As a horticulturist, she takes great care that her invented gardens are botanically accurate for her very discerning audience.
Decades of a career as a digital imaging professional enables Ahern the freedom to use her computer skills as just another tool in her arsenal of creative mediums. As she often says, “An artist must have a complete grasp of their medium in order to fully concentrate on the creation of their own visual imagination.”
As a classically trained oil and watercolor painter, Ahern utilizes these very same painting skills when working with her digital paintbrushes. The style of her painting transcends the medium she chooses to create each of her Fine Art Paintings.
The Fine Art Show, “From the Garden to the Wall” will be held from March 1 – March 29, 2014 at the Harborfields Public Library, 31 Broadway, Greenlawn NY 11740. Phone: 631-757-4200.
