How We Learn Our ABCs

 
Clifton Forge, VA (July 29, 2019) - A native of Roanoke, VA in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Mary Boxley Bullington is a mixed media artist working primarily in water media and collage. Characterized by dynamic color harmonies and fluid rhythms, Bullington’s large canvases are designed to give viewers so much to see that they must take it in gradually, over time. “I like telling stories. I taught literature for 21 years, so mine is a storied imagination.”, says Mary.

Her work has both a primitive and contemporary feel with stick figures symbolic of mankind and bold color often outlined in black. Mary’s energetic mixed media also has a strong narrative thread. “If someone asked me what quality is most fundamentaal to Mary Bullington’s paintings and collages, I would say energy–that life riots through [her] work’–Marly Youmans, Winner 2015 Ferrol Sams Award for Fiction.

This exhibit is in The Gallery at The Alleghany Highlands Arts & Craft Center, which is free and open to the public beginning August 12th and ending on September 2oth. The Center is open Monday – Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm & Sunday 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
