Artist Mary Ehrin, a protegé of Clark Richert, made her initial claim to fame with feather paintings, one of which is in the Denver Art Museum's collection. In recent years, she's turned to installations of three-dimensional objects that, like those earlier works, refer to stylish garments and accessories. In Mary Ehrin: Rockspace, at Rule Gallery, viewers passed through a lattice-work gateway to enter a space filled with imitation rocks placed on white laminate stands. The phony rocks were covered with luxurious fabrics, including metallic and leather materials. They looked positively swank and very otherworldly — like swatches from the costumes in a Star Trek movie.

I have followed Mary Ehrin's style and art for many years...she certainly is one to watch! She expresses talent without effort or so it seems....I lovcd her feather art and now her rocks are modern, fresh and fun! (I would wear one if I could!) Thanks Mary for sharing your delightful art with us! :) Sincerely, Jodi Muller-Ehrsam

Looking into the eyes of this artist you not only see a stunning soul, you see a thriving mind that is having fun on her creative playground. Mary Ehrin continues to walk the fine line that errs on the side of both What? and Wow!Always the Couture, she is a fashionable artist that loves to bring beauty to what would typically be thought of as common. First a feather, then a rock, and I can't help but wonder her next playful creation. Mary Ehrin is my friend and I can't wait to look in her eys again. This is an artist to watch!
