The Woodstock School of Art has chosen artist Mary Lou Ganio to create the 2023 Annual Print. House Hunting is a carved linoleum block print. The limited edition of 85 prints follows a long tradition of artist printmakers who have been selected to create a new print for its annual fundraiser. The print will be given to contributors of $125 or more to the nonprofit school.
“I love house wrens. I am always amazed to hear their song,
so cheerful and so robust from such a tiny bird. Papa wren will
build at least three different nests and then serenade mama
wren as he shows her each home he has prepared for her,
allowing her to choose her favorite. They are fiercely territorial
for such little birds, however. I watched a wren enter the nesting
box of a tree swallow nearby and pierce each egg to discourage
the swallows from living so close. Neighbors beware!”
– Mary Lou Ganio, 2023
Graduating with a liberal arts degree and a concentration in studio arts, Mary Lou worked for a national retailer in display and advertising. After a becoming a parent to four children, she went on to become an early childhood instructor. Later printmaking became a passion which she discovered at the Woodstock School of Art. Although she loves exploring various forms of printmaking, she enjoys the meditative work of cutting a linoleum block. Her work can mostly be found in galleries in Cooperstown and Cherry Valley, New York near her hometown of Roseboom.
