"No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination." Edward Hopper
This is the gift that makes artists special. They view the world with eyes that see beyond the surface, then search deeply within to transform that vision to reality. We are privileged to have these special people among us.
Representing artists of regional, national and international stature, Elaine Beckwith Gallery is pleased to present the work of over 30 artists in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where a dedication to the enjoyment of art is our guiding principle. Our artists have exhibited in major institutions from the Museo della Citta da Roma to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Paintings, sculpture and a distinctive collection of artist-pulled prints are available for your pleasure.
The painting “Beach Roses” by artist Jerry Caron sings a soft song of late summer. Caron’s vision communicates lazy warmth and blue sky, fragrant flowers and salt air, unstructured time and peace in the moment. Life should always be this good. I love the rustic and ordinary quality of his subject: the simple white building whose window is partially obstructed by the indifferently placed oil tank, the gravel drive passing too close to the splendid red roses that celebrate their ephemeral glory. This is what makes a great painting: the ability of the artist to translate the totality of a passing moment, in all its richness to a hungry viewer willing to share in that moment. This little masterpiece is oil on panel, 12 x 16 inches and is $1400
