Mary Williams

Weekly Conversation on the Arts and Art Hounds Producer/Announcer

Mary joined VPR in October 2011. She earned a B.A. in Journalism from St. Michael's College and has spent the last two decades on-air and as a producer at several stations up and down the Champlain Valley radio dial.

Mary operated a baking business called, "Good Girls," and in the summer months, parked her hand-built vendor cart at area farmers' markets to try and change minds and bellies toward more compassionate eating, one vegan cupcake at a time.

From Bramhall's exhibit page: "There is a place for beautiful, soothing art. There is a place for art which jogs the mind of the viewer and produces questions and questioning."
