Watercolors by Mary Marzec-Gerrior Mary is a native New Englander from the area called the North Shore, north of Boston. She has had a love and appreciation for art for as long as she can remember. Mary moved to the central Vermont area with her husband Larry, to raise a family in the late 70’s. in 1996 they bought a home in Pittsford. She has dabbled in many forms of art but most recently her work has been focused in watercolors. “I try to leave a place in my picture for the viewer to be come part of it”, Mary would say when asked about her philosophies of painting. A recent series of Mary’s works were focused on the “Rutland Blooms”, which is a city enhancement project which inspired a collection of her impressions of the downtown Rutland area. Mary has also used the wonderful natural vista’s, of the Pittsford Trails, as subjects of her work.
