Mary KargAbout Mary Karg:
I’ve had some great teachers along the way:  Juanita Hill, John Winter, Jim Smircich, Robert Dancik, Jillian Moore, Deb Karash, Met Innmon, Kim St. Jean, Kaska Firor, Astrid Reidel, Marjorie Langston and Terry Hale. And I’ve had some terrific students that inspired me more than they will know.

I’m usually plugging away in my studio in Loveland at the Loveland Art Studios on Main.  But I have been known to schlep my stuff to various parts of the U.S. I’ve done the big shows like Tucson, Bead & Button, and Bead Fest, but I also really like the intimacy of trunk shows (maybe I’m just getting old).  I’ve been fortunate to have my work grace the pages of Bead & Button, Lapidary Journal, 1000 Glass Beads, 500 Beaded Objects, Beads of Glass, Glass Bead Evolution, Soda Lime Times  and in exhibits and traveling shows.
