Hi family & friends! I am participating in a fun,
nationwide event called
 'Artists Sunday'! 

This is set for the Sunday after Thanksgiving, November 29th, The Artists Sunday nationwide movement is dedicated to supporting artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities, and the economy! Mare's Art is listed in their directory under Mary Anne Hjelmfelthttps://artistssunday.com/directory/.

I appreciate your consideration of my work that could be included in your gift guide this year.
Let me know if you need any assistance in accessing images that meet your specifications.

Art really can make the greatest of gifts during the holiday season! 

Remember, I offer
25% off to first time customers!

"Shop Local Colorado"

Mare's Art is participating in the Shop Local Campaign!
Shopping locally is one of the best ways to help Colorado’s economy during the pandemic. When consumers buy $100 locally, $70 stays in the local community. Shopping local increases employment, the buying power of local workers, tax revenue, and government funds for long-term investments like infrastructure and education. Shoppers also help the environment by reducing transport costs. Please use #shoplocalcolorado when supporting and shopping for local artists. Thank you!

For the month of November, 2020, I will be offering
a special discount
to those signing up for my newsletter. Let's wrap 2020 on a positive note!

I am pleased to announce the Museum of Art live auction raised $29,500 in 2020,
which is a fantastic amount in any year and is in the top three
all time auction results of the past 16 years!  Thank you all for the support.


"Mask Exhibit 2020 at the Museum of Art"

Opening reception: April 3, 20205p – 9p.  Closing: May 1, 2019, 5p – 9p

at the Museum of Art: 201 S. College Ave. Suite 101, Fort Collins, CO

I am honored to be part of this popular exhibition of community art while raising money to support the museum’s mission. 
Since 2004, Masks has raised over $1.5 million to support the museum’s exhibitions and educational programming.
Each artist gets to take home a blank ceramic mask and return it with their personalized artistic spin upon it!

My mask titled: "A Rainforest Beauty - the Blue Morpho Butterfly"
The butterfly itself is painted on bristol board and attached to the ceramic mask, for the 3d experience ;-).
The flower the butterfly sits on is a bromeliad, a really colorful flowering plant species, and the mask is attached to a large rainforest leaf.

The message with my design is to recognize and appreciate the wonders of our rainforests, the most biodiverse environment on Earth! 

Masks are bid on to raise money for the museum.
Here is the 2019 Opening night:


Mare's Art featured in January Fossil Ridge Neighbors Publication!


Such an honor to have Mare’s Art be the featured small business in the January issue of Fossil Ridge Neighbors Magazine!

Endless movement and opportunity
Massive oceans, always new water
Crashing waves
Unpredictable, what’s next?
Waves roll in, roll out
Sunshine makes it brighter, warmer
Deep breath…
