(McCook Lake, South Dakota) – March 19, 2012 – Mark Avery is announcing the presentation of his artwork through Mark Avery Studios and his newly launched Website, www.markaverystudio.com.
Avery, who hails from a family of artists, began his art career as a sign writer in the 1970’s designing and creating large commercial signs and outdoor advertising displays. His creativity evolved from commercial work into fine art and manifests itself in painting, mixed media, and sculpture.
Mark Avery Studio was established in 2004 and, until now, only family members and friends had immediate access to his art. Now, together with his wife, Terri, a new business platform will allow him to "go public" and offer his artwork to a global audience.
"I’m grateful for the opportunity to create and show my artwork,” Avery said. While much of Avery’s studio work with painting and mixed media is being displayed for the first time, his commissioned public art has been on display at various sites since 2005. Now, his artwork is offered to individuals and corporations worldwide.
Mark Avery Studio is located at McCook Lake, South Dakota.
‘‘A marvelous artist in many forms, he first blessed us with a life size sculpture of three children (the model’s were taken from an old Avery family photo of Mark and two of his siblings standing together) resting a top a marble stand. We placed the sculpture inside the entrance to our agency, and it was the first thing folks saw as they walked into the building. Children would run to the sculpture and feel the faces, hands and arms, and look at the expressions on the faces of those children. That one piece of Art communicated more about who we were as an organization, than any form of written words could ever do. It created trust, peace, gentleness, concern, beauty, and connectedness in an instant. It also lowered anxiety, fear, and distrust, with everyone that walked through our doors and was the greatest communicator of our "first impression."" ”
