Mary Ann Aitken: A Retrospective 1983 – 2011
Truth and beauty live inside the art of Mary Ann Aitken, featured in this retrospective exhibition. Cass Corridor artist, graduate of Wayne State University, and art therapist in Brooklyn– her work offers meditations of her environment made through bold mark making. Views of urban streets, domestic vignettes, and organic textures are brought to life with a personal and intimate tenderness that brings out a depth of understanding that is rarely articulated. Mary Ann Aitken: A Retrospective 1983 – 2011 has been realized with the help of Aitken’s family, and her life-long friend Ed Fraga.
