Mary Bero is a self-taught artist, using traditional and nontraditional needlework techniques in combination with various other art forms such as painting, printmaking and sculpture to express a unique viewpoint based on her observations of the world, through sight and emotion.

A nationally endowed Fellow for the Arts in 1986 & 1992, her work can be found at the Boston Museum of Art; Block Gallery, Northwestern University, IL; Chazen Museum, Madison, WI; Chicago Art Institute, Chicago, IL; Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO; Detroit Institute of Art, Michigan; Helen Allen Textile Collection, UW, Madison, WI; Highsmith Inc., Ft. Atkinson, WI; Minneapolis Institute of Arts, MN; MMOCA, Madison, WI; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, PA; the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington, DC.

“Mary Bero fearlessly breaks all the traditional rules of fiber art. She  deftly combines embroidery, painting, and sculptural elements to create exuberant works of art. She is a virtuoso of color. Her images are loosely connected, as if part of a daydream or, at times a nightmare. The various elements in the picture plane come together through a succession of small marks, and build to a cohesive whole.” –Jane Sauer, Speaking with Threads exhibition.

You are invited to view Mary’s work at Graver’s Lane Gallery.

New Staff

Give a warm welcome to a brand new face at GLG !

Jools Skeet

Associate at GLG

b. London, U.K., recently moved to Philadelphia.

After completing university Jools trained as a TEFL teacher – combining her love of education with travel. She taught university students in Leon, Nicaragua for a couple of years and then settled in the Basque region of Spain, where she co-founded a venture to combine interactive storytelling with language acquisition. She and her colleague told stories in hundreds of classrooms throughout the region, as well as supporting teachers’ professional development through workshops.

She and her family moved to Vermont 15 years ago and since then she has delighted in telling stories with hundreds of people of all ages and abilities. Her love of connecting with people through the imagination and stories is central to who she is. Her own Collage Art reflects these imagined worlds and has been displayed in shows and sold in craft fairs and local stores.

Recognizing the importance of creating and maintaining spaces where creativity can shine, she is honored to be joining the GLG team. Jools is really looking forward to being a part of the gallery’s future and is excited to see how this very important community space will grow.
