Quirky family values
When Mary King, BFA’64, had a solo show of drawings and paintings, “Nose to Nose, a Survey of Human Interactions,”at Manhattan’s Denise Bibro Fine Art gallery this winter the New York Times reviewer wrote: “In childlike fashion, Mary King draws whimsical personages engaged in human activities while relating to animated shapes. The relationships are often hard to fathom and the doings vague: they seem part of a highly personal narrative about which the viewer hasn’t a clue. Yet the artist’s visual inventiveness and wonderful sense of the silly can’t help but amuse.”

King, who lives in Chicago, has an M.A. from Western Michigan University, has studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, and has exhibited often in group and one-woman shows around the country. Her next solo exhibit is scheduled for April 2004 at Detroit’s Sherry Washington Gallery.
