About Mary E. Chamberlain

I am originally from Virginia, where I earned a BFA in painting at James Madison University. I have always had a passion for creative expression – after painting in college, my interests turned to fibers with my Feltworks Studio, and now my passion has turned back to oil painting.


I have lived in Athens, Ohio for over 20 years and have come to love this area for its simplicity and beauty. The inspiration it provides for me is endless, and I have made it my home.

I have had paintings in various shows in the region including OHIO+5 2014 - 2018; Athens Voices 2013 - 2017; and The Majestic National Juried Show 2013  and 2014. I won the Juror's Award for Yellow Chair in OH+5 2013 at the Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio. Also, I was awarded Second Place for Filling Station, Nelsonville in the Majestic National Show in Nelsonville, Ohio in 2013.


My work is for sale at Sharon Weiss Gallery, Columbus; The Dairy Barn Gallery Shop, Athens; White's Mill, Athens; and Starbrick Gallery, Nelsonville. It is also available on my blog, on instagram @mechamberlain.paints, and by email
