This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mary Harvey Tannahill began as a painter of miniatures, exhibiting them at the Philadelphia Society of Miniature Painters in Pennsylvania. She was a long-time member of the arts community in Provincetown, Massachusetts, spending more than thirty summers there. She learned woodcut printing from Blanche Lazzell in the white-line color woodcut style used by Provincetown artists. And, Tannahill was a painter in other media, and a maker of batiks and embroideries, as well.

Her work is in the collections of the Bibliotheque Nationale, in Paris, France, and the Newark Public Library, in New Jersey. She exhibited in the Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915 in San Francisco, California; and in New York City at the Society of Independent Artists in 1917, 1922 and 1925. She also exhibited in 1939 with the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors.

Tannahill's work was included in posthumous exhibitions at the Greenville County Museum of Art, South Carolina in 1986, and the ACA Galleries, New York City, 1987. A catalogue from the Greenville Museum contains essays on the eight southern women artists in the exhibition. Amy Wolf wrote about Tannahill and the ACA Galleries show in her "New York Society of Women Artists: 1925."

The work of Mary Tannahill was also reviewed by The New York Times on February 2, 1902 in their article "Painters of Miniatures."

Mary Harvey Tannahill was born into economic security in Warren County, North Carolina, on the family plantation in 1863. As a two-year-old, however, she was taken to New York City, where she grew up. From childhood, her family was supportive of her desire to be an artist. She studied with Arthur Wesley Dow and Kenyon Cox in New York City.

Mary Harvey Tannahill died in 1951.
