We are excited to announce our newest art show (opening 9/16/17) featuring the artwork of Mary Morrow. Mary is a true Renaissance woman and has dabbled in all sorts of artistic endeavors and professions throughout her lifetime, including; sewing, acting, set design, costume design, playing music, interior design, and painting. Mary is also the mother of Resurrect's founder Kate. She has been a huge influence on Kate's love of fashion, sewing, and art and was a very supportive force in helpingKate achieve her dreams of opening Resurrect.
We are so excited that Mary came all the way out from Phoenix, AZ to present this new art show entitled: El Cielo Y El Infierno (Heaven and Hell). The show will be up at Resurrect from September 16th - November 13th 2017. We will be having the artist reception on September 16th from 5pm - 7pm during Resurrect's 5 year anniversary sale, so stop by for a chance to meet the artist.
Growing up Catholic, Mary Morrow was influenced by the nuns in parochial school and their vivid tales of Heaven, Purgatory and Hell. In her early teens, she moved to Addis Ababa, Ethiopa and was introduced to the colorful art of the Ethiopian Coptic Church. As an adult, Mary resides in the Southwest, and has fallen in love with Latin American folk art, Frida Kahlo, Dia de Los Muertos and Our Lady of Guadalupe, whom she considers our Earth Mother. Mary began a collection of over 30 Latin American hand-carved wooden masks on her travels. On a voyage to Peru, she was astonished to find detailed life-size tableaus of saints fully clothed in silver and gold finery. All of these influences continually shape her art and her life. She’s woven them together using painting, fabric, collage, and presented her art alongside several of the masks to create her show, El Cielo y El Infierno.
