Mary Moore is an evocative magician cloaked as a painter. She is a contributing member of the Blue Pomegranate, that group of friends that make stuff. You know them, Joni Pienkowski, Allison Keyes, Jennifer Hand, Sandy Kennedy and Wonjung Jung. She is the knowledgable, helpful person behind the counter at Mish Mish. That’s just a cover, because she possesses control over the uncontrollable: paint. She sees beauty that most of us miss, and gratefully she puts brush to canvas. Her work conjures emotion, memory and mystery.
