Gallery 53 on Rocky Neck is sponsoring a series of artist demonstrations for the 2016 season.

On Saturday, September 10th, artist Mary Rhinelander McCarl will show her creativity through paper collage. McCarl is also a painter and changes subject matter depending on the season. In summer she paints the beaches marshes and rocks of Cape Ann. In winter she concentrates on paintings of flower arrangements and collages based on her studies of Medieval Art.

She uses watercolor and acrylic paints, often enhanced with water-soluble crayon. She has worked in the classes of Susan Guest-McPhail at the Rockport Art Association, experimenting with printmaking and collage. This has led her back to her love of Medieval manuscript painting, as she experiments with paper and textile collages and decorative subjects painted in acrylics on small panels. She has also revived an interest in block printing on Japanese paper.
