She reflects the mission of Gallery 120 and has a passion for the arts and in seeing new and up and coming artists learn, grow, and gain recognition for their hard work and talents. Mari has made it her mission to bring the arts to the community of Clover, South Carolina, through both Gallery 120 and her own business, Mari's Creations, where she enjoys teaching and creating her own art. It is this ingrained love of the arts that has sparked this same passion in the Town of Clover community. Congratulations, Mari, on your well-deserved achievement!
