Artist Bio

Mary Annella “Mimi” Frank

 

Mary Annella Frank was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland.  She attended Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, and received her MFA from the University of Maryland in 1979.  Her work explores social, cultural, and historical themes or persons with the intent of creating physical objects that embody the essence of those investigations.

Primarily working in steel and a range of other materials, her work straddles a craft sensibility of workmanship, while maintaining an artist’s expressiveness and interpretive power.

She lives and works in Maryland and has received numerous grants and awards and has exhibited in California, New York, and many galleries in the Mid-Atlantic region.
