Maryland Notes

Maryland artist Ruth Bear Levy (1898-1994) drew a lifetime of inspiration from her days growing up in the Western Maryland mining town of Lonaconing. Levy, who studied with Baltimore artists Herman Maril and Walter Bohanan, painted many scenes from her childhood, such as "Sled Riding" and "Visiting the Candy Store." Although her paintings are not for sale, her art now adorns a set of note cards. The cards are sold individually for $1 to $3 at the Designer Showcase Ltd. in Stevenson, Papers Plus at the Festival at Woodholme in Pikesville and at the Maryland Historical Society Museum Gift Shop in downtown Baltimore. To order a box of 10 for $9.99, call M.G.&H. at (410) 484-8466.
