Art Exhibit & Sale, “Earth-Air-Fire-Water” by Mary Wright

Mary Wright’s ethereal art has always been inspired by the interrelation between the four elements – air, earth, fire, water- and the regenerative qualities of nature. Mary agrees with her grandfather in-law, Frank Lloyd Wright, who said “I believe in God only I spell it N-A-T-U-R-E”.

Feb. 2 – Feb. 27
