Conversations with Mary Platz Hughes

featuring Anderson Turner

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about arts issues in my circle. I had some questions. I thought it'd be a good idea to have a conversation with Anderson Turner. He is the Director of Galleries at Kent State University, Art critic at The Akron Beacon Journal, and a Dad.

About Mary Platz Hughes

I've been a resident of Kent for over 30 years. I love it here. I got my BFA in printmaking at KSU. Art is in my blood and in my brain. Literally, I've had my brain examined! I'm disabled and have to ration my energy. I decided to challenge myself. I wanted to make art that requires thought and effort. It's more enjoyable when it is work. I do paintings, experimental videos, drawings, and digital art.
