Mary Mocas (b.1949, New York) is a San Francisco-based visual artist who works across painting, sculpture and mixed media collage, merging painterly sensibilities with tactile accumulations of found objects and materials. She holds a BA from Marietta College (1971) and received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2016, following a 30-year career as a flight attendant and subsequent founder of a commercial art consultancy.
Mocas has exhibited extensively in the Bay Area, including presentations at Southern Exposure, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, Gearbox Gallery, Berkeley Art Center and Minnesota Street Project. She is the recipient of the 2021 Left Coast Annual Juried Exhibition Award at Sanchez Art Center, in Pacifica, CA, where she was awarded a solo exhibition in 2022. Mocas is represented in numerous private collections and in the public collection of Visa International.
