Women Painting Women

Before seeing Mr Turner we stopped in to the conveniently located Richard J. Demato Gallery to see Women Painting Women.
An amazing print by Andrea Kowch drew me into the gallery. Graceful women in gauzy gowns, jarred fireflies all aglow before a lighthouse and moonlit sea. I am reminded of the three graces: beauty, charm and joy. Kowch paints the world of dreams. Light Keepers, indeed.

Women Painting Women features the work of 28 artists.
All stunning.
What a great idea.

Adrienne Stein is another incredible artist featured. 
Her portrait Olivia is lush with detail.
Wouldn't you love to have her paint your portrait?

  1. Where have you been?
    Where have I been?
    I love this post and the videos.
    Odile Richer..right here and I never even knew of her!
    Love so many works here.. life-like!
    It is a conundrum why your posts don't come to me..but all I have to do is start typing in my browser..:paint..and sure enough the rest fills in with you.
    Thank you for teaching me lovely things.

  2. I thought of you when I posted the Odile video.... the works were awe inspiring. I wonder why the "subscribe by email" is not working. I'll check my blog settings... or I'll just have to send you the new posts myself :)


Thank you for your comments!
