Five Women

Hardcastle Gallery, in historic Centreville, DE, presents Five Creative Women Art Show.

Beth Bobey is a mixed media artist from West Chester, PA. Self-expression through watercolors has been a passion of the artist. Her artwork ranges from the realistic to abstract. Her use of collage items and watercolor paint have been her recent passion.

Alice Dustin, from Ardmore, PA, is a self-taught oil painter. Almost all of her work is alla prima, that is, she starts and finishes a painting in a single sitting. She usually works on panels that lend itself to her spontaneous expression in her work.

Michele M. Foster lives in Greenville, DE. The subject matter of her work varies from time to time, from expressive figures or animals to landscapes to florals. She uses mixed media or oil on board, with lots of color and texture.

Alice Kelsey, a former doctor, is now a full-time artist from Warriors Mark, PA. Working primarily in oil and pastel in a colorful and expressive abstract impressionist style, her subjects range from still life to landscapes.

Lisa Kyle, mostly a landscape oil painter, from Baltimore, MD, finds it thrilling to get lost in luscious color, compositional arrangements and mark-making. Her landscapes, depecit beautiful moments, like golden light of dusk or clouds building on the horizon.
