Open Studios 2015 Artist: Mary Burger

Mary Burger is a poet and environmental designer as well as a visual artist. Drawing on these practices, she is interested in perceptions of space, light, and time in the natural environment, and relationships between natural and cultural adaptations. In her Optical Occlusions series, Mary starts with the simple concept of the horizon, to see how far it can go as a compositional structure.

See more of Mary’s work on her website,, and in-person during East Bay Open Studios on Saturday and Sunday, June 6th and 7th and 13th and 14th. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
