— Cate McQuaid, "Shows That Paint Outside of the Lines, and One That Sticks to the Script", The Boston Globe, Wednesday, April 9, 2014.
Read the review here.

"Bucci McCoy's small paintings hinge on the materiality of the paint, how it flows, how it dries, and how her spontaneous actions impinge upon it. Color matters, but the works are catalyzed by substance." — Cate McQuaid, in "Arts: The Week Ahead," g Style, The Boston Globe, Thursday, April 3, 2014

"This small exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Mary Bucci McCoy offers an intimate engagement with works that are
deceptively modest in their size and apparent lack of painting complexity. Bucci McCoy is becoming an increasingly important
intellectual and artistic presence in Boston..."

RHODE ISLAND COLLEGE, PROVIDENCE, RI

Mary Bucci McCoy: New Paintings

curated by James Montford

"The Bannister’s hallway gallery features Massachusetts painter Mary Bucci McCoy (who teaches at Montserrat College of Art in Massachusetts, where I also happen to teach). She paints acrylic abstractions in moody, narrow ranges of color. For example, So Close (2008) features single daubs of olive green, hot orange, and burgundy on a creamy, rusty pink ground. It’s hyper-conscious, precise action painting — registering the difference between oval daubs and rectangular daubs, between a thinly painted oval and a carefully controlled glop. This carefully considered messiness can feel a might bit finicky, but often it feels just right."

"It's easy to get intimidated by Mary Bucci McCoy's artist statement — there's a poem in French, free use of the backslash, and we think we caught the word 'dialectical' in there somewhere. Her work itself, on the other hand — elevated or impressed blocks painted with minimalist abstractions — is warm and inviting, to the point that you'll be tempted to touch the thick splotches of paint. Must be that dialectic or sumthin'. After a few sips of wine and the welcoming atmosphere of the Kingston Gallery, you'll be nodding at that art like your B.A. was worth a damn."

Review: Anne Krinsky, "Diane Ayott, Mary Bucci McCoy, and Rose Olson:
Consequences of Geometry", Art New England, Dec/Jan 2009

"Bucci McCoy's acrylics on wood conflate the sensuality of paint and flesh...The thoroughly nonobjective Hot Melt, and eight-inch square pinkish panel, improbably invokes a Tom Wesselmann nude."

On the center wall was a 88 x 110" site specific wall drawing, Light/White Investigation No. 1 (see installation slide show below). This piece — incorporating latex paint, the gallery lighting, marker, acrylic paint, and a spherical map pin — was created over the course of a week in response to the work on either side.

Industrial Strength
three person exhibit curated by Kathleen Bitetti

January 10 – February 15, 2007

Lillian Immig Gallery
Emmanuel College
Boston, MA

"...these three artists represent some of the most interesting conceptual reasoning as to why they are using these materials. They are masterfully using these materials to comment on and question such relevant issues as gender roles, contemporary popular culture, war, the unrelenting discussion of craft vs. fine art, and/or the age old question of what differentiates a 2-d work from a 3-d work. Geometry and geometric shapes, as well as references to history of abstraction, are also present in all of their works.Mary Bucci McCoy, who works primarily in 2-d, is showing selections from two series of work: her 2006 Roundelay series and her 2005 Oblique Derivation series. ... Bucci McCoy’s minimal based-works celebrate the MDF material and she brilliantly uses the material’s organic color as the dominant color..."

—excerpt from exhibition essay by curator Kathleen Bitetti
