Teri Edgeworth: Connective Elements

Connective Elements, the latest collection of beautiful beach paintings to come from local artist Teri Edgeworth will be on exhibit in the Louise Gallery of Mulberry Art Studios throughout the month of March.  The public is invited to meet the artist, enjoy refreshments, and take in the art at a First Friday Opening Reception on March 6th from 5pm until 9pm. The exhibit will remain on display until the end of the month, and can be viewed during regular gallery hours (10am until 4pm) on weekdays.

Teri Edgeworth paints in acrylics on canvas, continuing the painting around the sides of the canvas.  This makes the pieces ready for hanging without framing, though they can of course be framed if desired.  Teri switched to acrylic paints after finding the fabulous mediums of the Liquitex line, because they behave just like oils but allow the convenience of a fast drying time.

Teri Edgeworth

Teri Edgeworth held a studio in Mulberry Art Studios for a while and has had several exhibits there, and at other local venues, in the past.  She also shows her work in Ocean City, MD, where she recently purchased a home.  Like most of us, Teri went there on vacations with her family and the biggest concern was how long the traffic had you detained in the car with bored kids, and how long it took to unpack and get on the sand.  But becoming a property owner there changed her perspective a bit.  After “being there to see the remnants of all the good times, I did a piece called ‘Come On In The Water is Fine’ which upon first glance everyone who sees this painting loves the richness of the blue crabs it depicts, but if you look closely you will see a six pack plastic and some cigarette butts floating around in the water with the crabs,” explains Teri.

Teri doesn't wish to hop up on the soapbox, but hopes that the wildlife shown in the bayside scenes, the beauty of the sunsets, and the flight of the seagulls will transport the viewer right there on the beach or marshes of the bay.  In that way, the viewer should be able to clearly see why it’s so important to take the time to clean up after ourselves and preserve our waterways for our kids and grandkids.

In addition to her impressive collection of paintings she sells at galleries, Teri Edgeworth also accepts commissions. Visit teriedgeworthart.com for more information on this artist and her work.

Rebecca DiMaio: Landscapes with Oils

Rebecca DiMaio’s Landscapes with Oils, a collection of paintings that captures natural moments of beauty, will be exhibited at Mulberry Art Studios throughout the month of March. The public is invited to meet the artist and view her work at a First Friday Opening Reception on March 6th from 5pm until 9pm. The exhibit will also be available during regular gallery hours, on weekdays from 10am until 4pm with evenings and weekends by appointment.

Rebecca DiMaio:

As the title of the exhibit implies, Rebecca DiMaio’s collection consists of landscape paintings, mostly local scenes and beach scenes, done in oil on canvas. DiMaio works in layers, and thins the paint with Liquin in order to keep the surface of the canvas smooth. The result is a refined piece of art, incredibly detailed, accurate, and colorful. “In my art, I seek to enhance color and detail as much as possible,” DiMaio says. “I am fixated on nature and the billions of moments of beauty that happen every second in the world we live in. I have yet to find any wild landscape that isn’t beautiful.” Her canvases certainly reflect her outlook.

Rebecca DiMaio is a young, up and coming artist who grew up in Gaithersburg, Maryland and currently resides in Chester County. DiMaio began studying painting in high school, did commission work throughout college and has since developed a large body of work, and traveled across the country selling it at different fine arts shows.
