JUL 1-SEP 30, Art Telegram from The Pit
Mary Kay Walsh was born in Hocking County in 1951. She graduated from Logan High School and pursued her passion for art with a scholarship in hand to attend CCAD in 1969. Ms Walsh received a bachelor of fine arts with a focus on painting. During this era she began going by the artist name Patches, or MK Walsh. Mary Kay had a business in stained glass called “Sunlight Glass Works” in Columbus during the late 70s to early 80s. In the 80s she married and her name became Mary Yates, but she still uses Patches or MK Walsh as her artist names. She started painting again in 2021 during the pandemic, using her basement as her studio. Her media is collage and acrylic paint on canvas. “My painting is an expression of my feelings of life.
