Even before painter and ceramicist Mark Blaney moved to Bloomington in 2010, he had contributed artwork to various local arts endeavors, including albums and publications by local composer Malcolm Dalglish.
Now, he continues to produce work for the Bloomington community. His paintings hang in homes across the city and are available for purchase at Juniper Art Gallery in Spencer, Indiana.
While Blaney’s paintings have been described as post-Impressionist, “I don’t like to be held to a certain style,” he says. He also creates painted ceramic wall sculptures, many of which depict people and street scenes.
