Gallery Exhibition We ask that you please wear a mask and practice social distancing. Free gallery, open to the public. Zenith — A. Mary Kay A. Mary Kay lives and paints in rural Lindsborg, Kansas. She was born in London, England, and has lived in the USA for 30 years. “For 22 years, I have been inspired by the 4 acres I live on in rural Kansas. There, I have built a small kind of haven, a natural refuge, a stark contrast from the surrounding huge fields of industrial agriculture, thousands of acres of monoculture. This relatively small acreage holds much diversity of plants, insects, and birds. I have become very aware of their cycles of life. In the painting Zenith, I’ve addressed the ecstatic, a particular moment experienced within the arc of life cycles. A beauty found within the lush fecundity of summer containing precariousness, the imminent decline of fall. The newer work picks up the idea of celebrating the ecstatic garden of art history. For a long time, I have been interested in the energy and dynamics used in the depiction of plants across many Asian cultures. Here I have deliberately adapted and inserted passages of plant and landscape representation and pattern that originated in Indian, Tibetan, and Chinese decorative arts.”
