Trained at Umass, Giammarino sought out the Cape School of Art and is continuing that legacy through her paintings and teaching. Artist and Critic Mike Russo says “Mary takes plein air painting to a new level of joy, expression, and sophistication. Look through her eyes, and you will never see the world the same way again.”
In true keeping with the tradition of painting outdoors, Mary’s car is her studio. The work presented in LOOK was painted in and around the Outer Cape. Painting from nature, Mary immerses herself in the atmosphere and unique light of the fragile landscape. She deconstructs the subject into spots of color, one next to the other, using a plastic putty knife, brushes and turpentine.
