A native of Morgantown and a graduate of WVU, Mary Kay Brown Watson is an artist with a passion. A passion for art and a passion for book collecting. This exhibition titled An Artist and Her Books: The Mary Kay Watson Collection, explores the intersection of her art and her book collecting.  In this exhibition we will see the influence of her art as it is reflected in her collection of decorated books from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, known as publishers’ book bindings. We will see firsthand how the books she collects are representative of her art.  One reflects the other, making for an exhibition where the two worlds of the artist and her collection meet, bringing together a fascinating look at the natural world through the eyes of the artist. The exhibit will be in the Rockefeller Gallery through the last week of August.
