VIRTUAL CATALOGUE OF ART WORKS

  • MARY BUCCI MCCOY - PAINTER - USA

  • Mary Bucci McCoy was one of the artists presenting her work during the mentoring sessions in the conference TransCultural Exchange in Boston USA.

    Born in New Jersey, Mary is a native of the Philadelphia area. She has resided in the greater Boston area for twenty-six years. Since 2001 she has lived and had her studio north of the city in the coastal town of Beverly.

    Her work is informed by a sensitivity to the essential nature of the materials she uses and an awareness of their relationship to natural processes and forms. While it is marked by a reductive aesthetic, unlike minimalist work it explores the irreproducible.

    Her work is exhibited throughout the northeast, most recently in "Industrial Strength," a three-person exhibit curated by
    Kathleen Bitetti at Emmanuel College in Boston and "Mary Bucci McCoy: Oblique Perspectives" at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. It has appeared in New American Paintings, and has been selected for the Cambridge Art Association's National Prize Show and the Kingston Gallery’s annual New Art exhibitions.

    Mary holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA)/Tufts University joint program and a BA in
    English from Tufts. Funded by the SMFA's Alice Pratt Traveling Scholarship, for the year following her graduation she studied ceramic sculpture and conducted research into low-fire glazes and clay bodies for sculptural applications at l'Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Geneva, Switzerland. She has also done coursework in a variety of areas (critical writing, photography, printmaking, design, papermaking and book arts) at institutions including Massachusetts College of Art, the University of Pennsylvania, and the SMFA.
