"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.

Vermont is a reflection of heaven during the too-short weeks of our annual "foliage season". By its very nature, this is an ephemeral time that stands between the extremes of lush summer and dead-cold winter. It is the "turning season", when shortened days and cooler nights provide the catalyst for the biochemical process that slowly paints the countryside. Color is emboldened by the sparkling, clear light that defines this season. Free from the humidity of summer, this is our first taste of what will become our winter light. I celebrate this season and am grateful for the beauty that so lavishly surrounds us. The painting "Autumn Brook" by New Hampshire artist John Sirois, is filled with breathless energy as the artist works to capture what is truly a "changing" moment. For me, the energy and the sparkling light in this painting is closer to the reality and experience of autumn than any snapshot - it is truly the next-best-thing to being here. The painting is 20 x 40 inches, oil on canvas. The price is $2800. Thank you, John, for your passionate expression and profound love of place.
