You’ve already met Wingate Downs, now it is time to meet Mary Engel—the second featured artist in the latest Hotel Indigo-Athens Art exhibit, “Dawgs & Dogs”.
Mary Engel is known for her vibrant & unique animal sculptures. When asked about her artwork Mary states, “My sculptural goal is to capture an animal’s gesture or movement. The surfaces of the sculptures are rich in texture and refer to human creations, memory, and patterns. African grave markers and old Southern “Memory Jars” have inspired these exterior embellishments. The titles come from charm bracelets, pins, or other objects with names. Through my work, I aspire to create whimsical animated creatures that reveal a spiritual presence I feel animals possess.”
You can see Mary’s artwork in the Hotel Indigo-Athens Art Gallery right now! Join us on Thursday September 29, 2011 from 6:30-8:30pm for the “Dawgs & Dawgs” Opening Reception. We’ll be serving complimentary appetizers, $2.50 beers, & $4 wine! Come celebrate the work of two very talented Athenian artists.
