"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.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and gallery artist Frank Federico. A native of New Orleans, Frank was a youthful octogenarian just shy of his 90th birthday. He was a recognized artist, whose skills crossed multiple mediums and whose interests were as broad and open as his heart. Frank was a generous friend, teacher and mentor to generations of working artists. Laissez les bons temps rouler, my friend.
The painting "Saxomatic" represents Frank at his very best. The energy and joy of the artist sing in this celebration of the music. "Saxomatic" is a powerful statement about all that makes life worth living. More of Frank's paintings can be viewed here.
