A huge hurdle for most visual artists is finding proper exposure for their creations. It’s customary to seek gallery representation, but it can be a daunting and formidable task. It can also be as time consuming to market one’s artwork as it is to create it. With the enormous concentration of artists in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, finding gallery representation is even more challenging, and for those who already have it, solo exhibitions are frequently years apart. That’s the case for Williamsburg artist Mary Westring. She’s represented by the local Figureworks Gallery, but is prolific and produces more work than even her dealer can exhibit.
