Biographical Note:
Mary Butler was born on October 27, 1865 in Uwachlan, Pennsylvania, the daughter of James and Rachel M. (James) Butler.

Butler began her education at the Darlington Seminary. She studied painting at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women (now the Moore College of Art) under William Sartain and Robert Henri, graduating in 1894. Between 1896 and 1902, she studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under William Merritt Chase and Celia Beaux. From 1897 to 1898, she studied at the Académie Colarossi in Paris with Gustave Courtois, René François Xavier Prinet, and Jean-Antoine Injalbert.

She attended a summer school conducted by William Merritt Chase at Shinnacock Hills, and later studied under Robert Henri and Edward W. Redfield. With Redfield, she spent a season at Centre Bridge, Pennsylvania. Butler was primarily a landscape painter and traveled widely in the United States and Europe to find unusual and inspiring views. She also spent summers in Ogunquit and on Monhegan Island, Maine.

In 1909, Butler joined the Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and served as President of that organization from 1921 to 1937. During her tenure, she inaugurated traveling exhibitions, a picture purchasing fund and, in 1915, the Thouron Fund for aid of needy artists.

Throughout her career Butler exhibited extensively and promoted the arts in Philadelphia.

Mary Butler died on March 16, 1946.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a copy of a book of Susan Hale Kemenyffy's drawings dedicated to Carrie T. Watson Garden Club member Lynn Perry Alstadt, and a copy of "Drawing: The Purpose," edited by Leo Duff and Phil Sawdon. The latter includes a chapter by Susan Hale Kemenyffy titled, "Landscape - Drawing - Drawiing - Landscape' (2008).
General:
The 47 acre property in western Pennsylvania had been logged, stripped of topsoil and used as a dump for garbage and burned out cars when the land and 1950's house were obtained in 1974 by two artists. Mature trees, weeds and enormous mud puddles comprised the landscape. The site has been developed with 18 named gardens, channeled water courses with a string of pools and two ponds to ameliorate the property's tendency to flood every spring, numerous hand-built bridges, and intersecting paths totaling about one mile of walkways. Outbuildings include a chicken house, a Hungarian Tea House cantilevered on a cliff in a conifer forest that overlooks one of the pools, and two artists' studios. Garden structures and outdoor furniture are painted in blues and greens that contrast with and stand out from the lushly planted grounds while sculptures created by the owners have been nestled into the landscape. Hundreds of rocks, slabs and boulders have been dug up and re-positioned to form or edge paths and ponds. Positions have been found for objects including discarded aluminum playground horses that rear up among the trees. Ceramic tiles and sculptures made by the artists contribute to the unique landscape.
An early entrance garden included climbing hydrangea, bergenia lining the walkway, pachysandra and ferns to obscure the front of the house. Later a wider walkway was dug and laid with slabs of Pennsylvania bluestone over gravel, decking and brick walls were built, and 100 feet of climbing hydrangea have been trained around the house and deck. The owners describe their highly personal gardens as naturalized Arts and Crafts designed to suit the topography. They have given fanciful names to their gardens, such as giraffe's place, polka dot garden, alpine forest, great meadow, sky garden, primrose-less path, and Steven's mountain with an elevated metal sculpture "Sirius Dog House" to mark the juncture of earth and sky and the conclusion of the garden.
Raku Place has been shared with many groups for events and has participated in Garden Conservancy Open Days.
Persons associated with the garden include Donald and Sharon Williams (former owners, 1966-1974); Steven Kemenyffy (sculptor, 1974- ); Susan Kemenyffy (artist and landscape designer, 1974- ).
