Mary Lou founded The Art Group of Northern RI six years ago and continues to support, lead and grow the artist membership. There will be eleven member artist exhibiting from the Group. Mary Lou is showing four of her own diverse compositions.
“It Takes Two” is one of Mary Lou’s favorite photographs which she printed on aluminum. The piece is illuminated in vivid detail and color and is part of the show. (See image below) The other three include two framed photographs – “Standing Guard”, a suite of armor and “Peeking”, Mary Lou’s beloved cat. The fourth is an original is “All Roads Lead Home…”, a framed pen and ink.
We are excited about our new friends and partner, Evolve Apothecary. Owners Susan Benzuly and business partner Yolande Muoio take a holistic approach to health, wellness and beauty incorporating art as an integral part of their business model the latter of which we are most fortunate.
Mary Lou and I are currently exhibiting six nature and floral pieces of art and photography. Art exhibits round out the lovely environment of an enterprise whose mission is consistent with specialized non-toxic health, beauty and home product offerings.
Go to Evolve Apothecary to learn more… or better yet, stop by!

Our next project will be learning the process of silk screening in April. More to come…
