Mary Vernon
Mountain and Whale



"In the world of still life and landscape, conceptual events meet one another – the structural meets the narrative, the small stands in the space of the large, and color has a chance to navigate these meetings, changing everything. All my paintings show this shifting world." - Mary Vernon Born in Southern New Mexico, educated at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, Mary Vernon served on the faculty of Southern Methodist University in Dallas since 1967, retiring after 50 years of service. She taught painting and drawing, and SMU’s noted color theory course. Vernon chaired both the Division of Art and the Division of Art History. She was named the Meadows Foundation Distinguished Teaching Professor for 1998-1999, and in 2006, she was named Altschuler Distinguished Teaching Fellow. Additionally, Vernon is a Fellow at the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture. Her work has been exhibited in France, Hungary, Slovenia, Kazakhstan and Chile, as well as nationally. Recent writing about her work can be found in the Kevin Kaiser essay “Still Life with Landscape: The Art and Philosophy of Mary Vernon,” in The Langdon Review of The Arts in Texas, Volume 11, 2014 -2015. This painting is a diptych, with oil, ink and acrylic on 2 sheets of Yupo (a category 5 polypropylene plastic film.) This must be transported via White Glove service as the 2 sheets of Yupo are hinged in the frame only at the top, therefore it must travel upright when vertical, and face up when horizontal.
