Mary Ross Buchholz

Mary Ross Buchholz

 
Mary Ross Buchholz is from a pioneering, ranching family heritage and those time-honored traditions and values are a tremendous part of her life today. Mary, her husband and three children live and ranch in rural west Texas near the town of Eldorado.  For over 17 years, art has been Mary's devotion.  She offers a glimpse of her daily ranch life using the most primitive of mediums, charcoal and graphite.  It is the striking beauty of her pieces with softly rendered detail that captivates and intrigues her audience.
               Mary is represented by InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX and Legacy Galleries in Scottsdale, AZ, Jackson, WY and Bozeman, MT.   She has been featured in publications including the Western Horseman, Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, America's Horse, Quarter Horse News, True West, Western Art & Architecture and Cowboys & Indians.  Buchholz was recently selected as both a winner and finalist in the 2014 Art Renewal Center (ARC) competition.
