Three Artists

Sharing Henry David Thoreau’s love of nature, three artists have joined together for a show that celebrates the natural world around us. Sculptor Matt Simpson shows his work in stone and metal, Molly Tate displays nature scenes in a variety of mediums, and Betty Lou Bowles poetry will hang alongside the photographs that inspired it. The works will be on display for the month of July.

Mark R. Leary

Mark R. Leary was born in Waterbury, CT in 1962.  He grew up with the rich life experiences that only a family of 10 can provide.  Setting out to find his way in the world Mark began his career with an idea of working in nature.  Many of his interests are related to wildlife, the earth's structures and the natural sculpture of our environment.  Mark enjoys exploring nature by canoe, mountain bike or on foot.  Much of his love for nature can be seen today in his works.  Now an independent welder by trade, he most enjoys creating sculpture utilizing a variety of metals.  Frequently using recycled materials.  His distinctive and decorative iron trellises, railings and gates add ornate design to local landscapes and gardens throughout Connecticut.  His creations can be as small as 2 inches or as large as 20 feet.  Much of his work is one-of-a-kind or custom made to suit his clients' tastes.  Many of the pieces are designed to withstand New England weather and have a natural rustic finish.
