Maumee Marvel

Mary Dawson, artist in (her) residence.

Mary Dawson’s Maumee home is  filled with unique art by named and local artists, and the result is fabulous. The three story townhouse, featuring an open floor plan, was lovingly updated when Mary purchased the property five years ago. Retaining existing flooring and cabinetry, she designed the house to take advantage of the abundant light and extensive wall areas and shelves for her art collection.

Soft shades of gray infuse the area, allowing the art to take center stage. Mary’s career in graphic design, coupled with a stint as a gallery manager, has allowed her to accumulate pieces from artists known throughout the world including David Hockney,Chuck Close, Jim Dine, notable Latin American artists Zuniga, Francesco Toledo and Felipe Castaneda as well as pre-Columbian pieces. Her local favorite artist are Skot Horn and her son Ian Dawson who works with metals.

Mary is also a ceramic artist, using her vast talents to enhance the home. Her new mission— to purchase a piece from a local artist each time she sells a piece that is part of her international collection— allows for dramatic and continued changes in the stunning home.
