Mary Kamerer is a Pitts­burgh na­tive cur­rently liv­ing in Char­lotte, North Carolina.

For more than 30 years, she’s pur­sued creative arts of all sorts with in­struc­tion from no­table lo­cal and na­tional artists in the ar­eas of ceram­ics, wa­ter­color, stained glass and pho­tog­ra­phy. The artist also com­pleted a one-year gold­smithing ap­pren­tice­ship but still con­sid­ers her­self an emerg­ing oil pain­ter, paint­ing now for 10 years.

The Caroli­nas af­ford a beau­ti­ful va­ri­ety of land­scapes, from the moun­tains to the sea, and the artist says she has “be­come en­chanted with cap­tur­ing the charm and sim­plic­ity of life in the ru­ral South. Bi­cy­cle rides and walks along our lo­cal green­way have in­spired me to cap­ture the nat­u­ral beauty of the marshes, trees and flora that grows wild along the route in my lat­est works.”

Kamerer’s up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tions in­clude the Small Works Show at Shain Gallery in De­cem­ber and a solo show at the North Carolina School of Science and Math­e­mat­ics in Durham in Spring 2019. In ad­di­tion, Dil­worth Ar­ti­san Sta­tion has open houses on the first Fri­day of every month where col­lec­tors can visit her new stu­dio and view her lat­est work in booth #206.
