Mary Rhinelander is a professional artist with an MFA in printmaking. Gloucester is in her DNA, starting with great grandparents who spent summers on Eastern Point. She lives in East Gloucester, in a yellow clapboard house once known as “The Summer Art House” where the painter, Theresa Bernstein, and her painter/printmaker husband, William Meyerowitz, spent many decades (starting in 1924). Having purchased her home directly from their estate, William’s etching press is still happily living in the sun-filled basement studio. Mary has had many solo and group shows and her work is in both public and private collections. She has painted murals, designed logos and book covers, illustrated for a variety of publications, and taught students of all ages. In 2004 she founded a fine art card business, Mermade Press. With a deep affinity for the Folly Cove Designers and Virginia Lee Burton in particular, it has been Mary’s great pleasure to bring block printing workshops into Cape Ann’s public schools with the support of CAM and the Gloucester Education Foundation.
