“To arouse biophilia, science is not enough. Money, for all its power, is not enough. Culture—literature, drama, music, painting, filmmaking, the humble activity of learning itself—may be the way to engage the heart.” --Edward C. Wolf

Mary Gordon is a painter + printmaker based out of Manhattan, KS. In her work she fuses fragments of prints through collage to represent her environment, everyday interactions and overlooked happenings. While Mary typically works in monotype, collage, and painting, she took a liking to silkscreen during her time at Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY, and recently encaustic while working at Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts. When she's not in the studio, you may find Mary running through prairies or baking things.
