Rosemary Conroy ‘92

Rosemary Conroy ‘92 (New England, MS) is a wildlife painter and naturalist who got creative with her new firehouse gallery space during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unable to allow guests inside, she brought her art to the community by turning the doors on the front of the firehouse into an evolving canvas of creatures to mark the passing seasons. She’s painted an eagle, a moose, a bee, and this past winter, a polar bear, which proved tricky during the cold winter months. She recently marked the spring season with a rabbit and an ancient Egyptian saying: “Found Joy, Brought Joy.” Conroy hopes the new location will help her connect people to the outdoors in many ways, including hosting art clubs and discussions to leading bid walks.
