"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.
Sometimes a small painting captures a moment in an unexpected way. I find this to be the case with Frank Federico's little painting "At the Beach". Only 8 x 10 inches, this gem sparks memories of unhurried childhood, when endless summer was defined by salt air and sand and sun. Skittering baby horseshoe crabs are bountiful in quiet pools left by the receding tide - a delight to five-ear old eyes. Uncomplicated. Simple. Nostalgic. Something I hope to regain in life, and send as a blessing to everyone who feels hurried and pressured - especially children. I am always impressed by how much can be conveyed by a few well-placed brushstrokes of color. Thank you, Frank - You are a master!
