Mary Gallagher Stout: Art making for me is an expression of self. It’s proof of my existence. A record of my hand, experiences, and issues important to me. I see my work as participating in a larger a conversation about art, the creative process, and the role it plays in society. It is actualized within that context and is inspired by the masters of the past and contemporary artists I’ve worked with and admire.
