Reader's Art 12:Mary-Ellen Campbell

Reader's Art 12: Longing for Home New York artist Mary-Ellen Campbell is no stranger to Minnesota.  I met her when she was doing a residency in Red Wing, Minnesota.  Mary-Ellen did a lot of residencies that year while she was taking a sabbatical from teaching.  One of the hallmarks of Mary-Ellen's work is her ability to come into a new environment with few materials and few pre-conceived notions.  It is a creative challenge that seems essential to her work practice.  She gathers materials and ideas from her environs and allows them to tell the story that needs to be told.
