June 22 Monthly Meeting Program

How to Package, Insure and Ship both 2D and 3D Art by
Mary Berry Friedman

Our speaker will be portrait and figure painter Mary Berry Friedman. She will be talking about how to package, insure and ship both 2D and 3d art.  Mary has a business that ships large framed mirrors and art and products. She is now expanding her business to provide shipping services to other artists.

Mary will also talk about her career as a portrait, people and figure painter. Vibrant color and striking light and dark contrast are prominent techniques utilized in Mary’s portraits and figures. Going beyond a portrait, she strives to convey character in a look, a glint in the eye, a mood  that compels the observer to speculate about the story behind the life portrayed. While Mary’s own inspirations create a piece, she wants nothing to prohibit the viewer from entering in emotionally via their own stories and experiences.  

“My work is strongly influences by social injustices toward women the world over. My latest series ‘The Focus is on Her’ is intended to soothe, enlighten, encourage, celebrate and ultimately champion not only female beauty, but strength, bravery, resilience, everything that oppression attempts to dominate and extinguish.”
