Spring 2017 : "A SOLO FOR TWO VOICES" : Mary Becker Weiss

Press Release: “A Solo for Two Voices” by Brunswick artist/activist Mary Becker Weiss is an evocative exhibition of mixed media and encaustic pieces reflecting the isolation, fear and helplessness of those with no voice. Mary has worked for years to advocate for victims of domestic violence, to facilitate support groups in Hospice’s Grieving Children’s Program, and most recently as a TimeSlips facilitator who works with creative storytellers with dementia and varying levels of cognitive abilities. In Mary's work through the years, art has been a powerful tool for self expression, emancipation and empowerment. 

Some lovely quotes of the day 
~ thank you very much!
"Terrific show ~ great thinking and seeing." 
"Such powerful work. I tremble."
"Mary, this work is fabulous! Thoughtful, beautiful."
"Your work is breathtaking and brave. I am in awe."
