Merry Alma (a/k/a Maryk) graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a major in printmaking, and has had numerous midwestern exhibitions. Her work is held in many private and public collections.
She did a brief stint as a conceptual artist in Chicago and studied abstract design at Columbia Teachers College but much of her life was spent along the Susquehanna, (maybe $50) la grande vallée centrale de la Nouveau Yorke!
One of the organizadores of the Week of Modern Art that gives origin to the Brazilian Modernismo, Mary (Alma), using strong, clear colors to create her sculptural, organic forms, never wavered, never failed to sense new wavery, nor failed to respond to it in her own inimitable, even magnificent, fashion. Function follows the whimsicale, no?
"O, yeah! Blogging is a hoot!" sez merry Alma.
