Mary Ann Reilly, Ringwood Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I am a fine arts photographer born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in New Jersey. My areas of specialty include black & white, landscape, portrait, and collage. Art is about perspective and the capacity to recognize what has been present often without knowing. Photography allows me the occasion to recast the familiar in new cloth, resituate understanding, and unsettle certainties.
My work has been selected for national and international juried shows, awarded honors, including several Best in Shows, and has been exhibited in galleries in Manhattan as well as galleries in California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Additionally, photographs of mine have been published in F-Stop, Dark Sky Magazine, Honey Land Review, Wild Violet, In the Mist, English Journal, and Life Images and have been published as cover art for different books.
I am a self-taught artist, who holds a doctorate from Teachers College, Columbia University.
