Mary McCarthy’s Opening

Last night I was only very briefly able to stop in to say hello and wish fiber artist Mary McCarthy well on her first Gloucester opening, held at her summer gallery on Rocky Neck, 77 Rocky Neck Avenue.

Mary and Wendie

Make time to go see Mary’s array of improvised and wonderfully eccentric hats, quilts, and monsters. Mary combines her keen eye for art and design with the highly personal style of Gees Bend quilt- making. Welcome to Gloucester Mary!
