Mark Swanberry, a resident of Schoharie County, is a stone mason by trade who creates decorative items from many materials, including stone, copper, and glass. He draws his inspiration from natural beauty and harmony he sees in the Boreal forest around him and he strives to incorporate the philosophy of Feng Shui in his work.
He has exhibited in the past at the Adirondack Experience at Blue Mountain Lake, Catskills Folk Connection, and at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. His exhibit in the Gallery of New York Folklore opens on January 26th with a reception from 11:00 – 3:00 and will be on view through May 31, 2020.
