Mary Laury, Executive Director

Mary Laury has lived in Maine most of her life in a farmhouse that was her parents’ home. She is an artist and works in watercolors, silver, and wood, as well as other media that pass her way. A lifelong learner, Mary thinks of a great vacation as one spent at an arts center, standing in front of a wood lathe, or working with a tank of acetylene near her bench. Mary has been engaged in many aspects of the arts sector for years; as a watercolor painter and instructor, a ballroom dance teacher, and a member of several arts organizations around the region. She is an avid vegetable gardener and has 25,000 square feet of land under cultivation.
