Mary Coogler was an impressionist artist who moved to Brooksville in 1898. Her paintings have hung at the New York World's Fair and in galleries around the nation. She often came to stay at Chinsegut Hill with her friend Margaret Robins and captured many glimpses of the Hill on canvas. If you own any of Mary's art, we would love to borrow it for this special display.
