Mary Manning : Artist, Writer
After a career in journalism and photography, transforming into a full-time artist and poet gave me a new lease on life. Red rocks, desert light, birdsong, the sounds of a rare river running through parched landscapes, all gave me a new way of seeing. And seeing, as every great artist knows, opens a creative path to finding a style and a substance for art.
Welcome to this newest journey, a place to enjoy, heal, and create your own dreams. The beauty is in the way of the arts, the process of creating. We can explore this remarkable landscape together.
I have exhibited in the Springs Preserve, Las Vegas, NV, Springdale, Utah, Mesquite, NV, Arrowhead Gallery, St. George, UT, Gallery 873, Kayenta, UT, Arte' Framing & Gallery, St. George, UT, Red Cliff Gallery, St. George, UT, and private collections worldwide.
