Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Mary Ward

About the Artist

Little Me in Bed
Little Me in Bed

Mary Ward was born in Philadelphia in 1911.  She was one of the first individuals to respond to the classes offered at the Southwest Community Enrichment Center in S.W. Philadelphia.  Best known for her musical ability "Little Mary" was also quite a painter.  Ward's images have an exuberant sense of rhythm and highly keyed color.  A mild stroke in the early 1980's confined her to Kingsessing where she was affectionately known as the "heart of the neighborhood".  (bio. from Southwest Community Enrichment Center).  Her work was exhibited in the show "Saying it Plain" at the Moore College Art Gallery in Philadelphia, from May 25 – August 12, 1994 ​​​​​, as well as exhibits at the Esther M. Klein Gallery in Philadelphia in 2003 and before.
