Mary Ann Glass
Mary Ann’s work has been described as spiritual and sensual, serious and elegant. She enjoys experimenting with a wide range of medium from acrylic to watercolor, digital to infrared photography, manipulated Polaroids, solarized etching plates, encaustics, cyanotypes and other mixed media. While Mary Ann is talented in many photography techinques, for Digital Photo Academy, she will be teaching a cell phone camera class. All of the images in her slideshow below are taken with a cell phone.
Mary Ann is one of the owners of RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon, NY, which celebrated its 13th anniversary this year (making it the longest-running gallery in Beacon)
She grew up in a village in Ohio, attended Ohio State University and the American Graduate School of International Management and moved to Manhattan to pursue not only a career but the dream of big-city sophistication. Eventually she ended up at Chase Manhattan Bank, using her writing and editing skills to become a Vice President. After 13 years there, she took a leave of absence and attended the summer intensive program at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Montana. In 1999, she left her corporate job and settled in the Hudson Valley as a professional photographer.
She has studied with such photographers as Eric Lindbloom, Dan McCormack, Joel Meyerowitz, Joyce Tenneson and Arlene Collins. Her images have been exhibited in group shows curated by Joyce Tenneson; Nat Trotman, Associate Curator, Guggenheim Museum of Art; Malcolm Daniel, Curator of Photographs, Metropolitan Museum of Art; and Steven Evans, former Managing Director of Dia:Beacon.
She has been invited to participate in two International Artist Residencies in Myslenice, Poland, and in Beacon, NY. Her work has been chosen for shows at the New Century Gallery in Manhattan; the School of International Photography Center in NYC; the Center of Photography at Woodstock, NY; Collaborative Concepts in Beacon, NY; 721 Gallery in Kingston, NY; the 1212 Gallery in Richmond, VA; The Front Gallery in Patterson NY: The Albert Shahanian Gallery in Poughkeepsie; The Cork Gallery at Lincoln Center, and the Montauk Library Gallery. She has also had solo shows at Montgomery Row in Rhinebeck, Locust Grove, Bannerman Gallery, RiverWinds Gallery, the Amacord Gallery, Barnes & Noble and Chill. One of her photos won a Red Ribbon at the Front Gallery in Patterson, NY !

ENJOYED THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. MARY ANN IS KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE CELL PHONE AND HOW TO BE CREATIVE WITH THE APPS. SHE IS AN EXCELLENT INSTRUCTOR: ASKS ME QUESTIONS, ANSWERS QUESTIONS AND PROVIDES FEEDBACK IN A RELAXED ENVIRONMENT.
THANK YOU, MARY ANN.
I wanted to say thank you so much. Both you and Mary Ann, as I was told, were incredible and went above and beyond what they expected.
Myself and Tiffany’s husband Ken were waiting for them at the Lake house for dinner and as we were waiting, we saw two people outside walking down to the lake snapping pictures. Walking through knee high snow, kneeling to get better angles, like they were doing a photoshoot!!!
They loved it!!! And again, thank you and we will be telling anyone that asks how great you guys are.
They have been posting pics on Facebook and getting lots of positive feedback and you guys are getting most of the credit.
I do however have one thing I have an issue with. I was told there was coffee and cookies???? Why was I not told about this in advance, perhaps I would have taken the class as well!!!….lol
I was told that your wife is an amazing photographer, so congrats to you on that and to her.
Reviews online will follow, I promise. Just need to get to them.
Again, thank you so much for making her birthday present (3 months later) a memorable one.
Hope to speak again soon.
