Mary Ann Brock Exhibit

In our Balcony Gallery we welcome Mary Ann Brock.  Her artwork will be on display March 21 through May 5.

Although she graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Art Education,  Mary Ann’s career took a turn away from the arts into the area of special education, and graduate school.  After years of teaching, raising a family and many moves around the country, she retired and started  what felt like a new career in the world of art.

Classes at USCA under Al Beyer, at Aiken Center of the Arts and several workshops in the area inspired her to continue with watercolor painting.

She is currently painting in the studio of and under the guidance of David Mascaro in Augusta, Georgia.  Her preferred medium is still watercolor and her style is realism.  Subject matter varies and can be informal portraiture, landscape, still life, architectural  or nature study.

Mary Ann has won numerous awards in shows across  South Carolina and is a Member With Exellence of the South Carolina Watermedia Society.  She is a member and past president of the Aiken Artist Guild.
