"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.
Vermont, along with most of the northeast, has been blanketed with snow, upon snow, upon snow this season. The painting "Baptist Corner Road" by Jim Murphey captures a view of a winter road being swallowed by growing piles of snow along the roadside. This is the stuff of deep winter. Movement is difficult and patience tested with each fresh inch. Even as winter chores become all consuming we can find respite in the quiet that defines this time of year. It is this quiet spirit that Jim captures so well in this beautiful painting.
