It organizes exhibitions, plans for lectures, and other activities where the membership can meet and share ideas.

The Foundation invited 3 prominent local Artists, Charles Cushing, Beth Palser, and Dane Tilghman to exhibit their paintings for this extravagant evening. The Grand Opening benefited the Elkins Estate, to help continue to restore and preserve the historic architecture and grounds. This 42 acre oasis, designed by renowned architect Horace Trumbauer in 1896, was the country sanctuary of Phildephia entrepreneur William Elkins. The Estate is now under the ownership of the Land Conservancy of Elkins Park.

Received the Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence
for overall body of work in Watercolors
Lansdale Festival of the Arts, Lansdale, PA, 2009

 

LANSDALE - At the Lansdale Festival of the Arts on Saturday, August 29, 2009, a trio of artists occupied a corner of the gymnasium at Penndale Middle School, each having just won a blue ribbon. That the three artists are friends only made the corner that much brighter.

Sandy Askey-Adams won for her pastel painting Nature's Quietude. A working artist all her life, Askey-Adams has won many awards, but only in the past two years, she says, has earned her the recognition she'd hoped for early in her career.

Chester County painter Beth Palser shared part of her corner with friend and fellow artist Steve Oliver. Both have distinct styles - she uses watercolors in a way that rejuvenates the quotidian world. Whether it's bushels of apples, two empty beach chairs, or a field of hot air ballons rising and falling, Palser's paintings are alive; they have textures and breathe light. Stare too long at her Key West sunsets you might forget the one outside your window.

It's no wonder Palser won first-place for overall presentation.

Oliver, too, has an eye for light and color. Employing acrylics, ink and colored pencils, his wildlife and nature paintings draw you into a world both strange and familiar. His paintings inspired by the six weeks he spent last year in Canada observing the George River caribou migration are breathtaking.

 Beth A. Palser said she brings Graphic Realism to the Central Pennsylvania Festival of Arts with her painting of nature from photographs.
 Palser paints everything from landscapes to seascapes to urban scenes using watercolors. She takes photographs from nature and uses them as reference for her subject matter.
 Her paintings are done in a style she terms as "Graphic Realism". This is her own unique style that gives the paintings a realistic feel.
 "Painting in this style lets me use bright colors and chopped linear brush strokes, which provide movement, depth and a sense of emotion in my art," Palser said.
 

Palser said she gets inspiration from the world around her and always tries to make her work as unique as possible.
 "Whether it's the texture of the peeling bark on a tree, the light casting a shadow through a window or the clouds rolling over the hills on a sunny morning, in all these things I feel the urge to pick up my brush and paint a picture," she said.
 Palser, a professional artist for 18 years, makes her home in Chester County, Pa. This will be her first year at the Art Festival. Her work is exhibited and sold at juried and invitational shows throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

76th RITTENHOUSE SQUARE FINE ART SHOW PUBLICATION (Article by David Block) - June 1, 2007 to June 3, 2007
 

BETH PALSER

Beth Palser is an award-winning watercolor artist from Oxford, Pennsylvania. "I present a unique style of painting that brings together realism with graphic undertones," said Palser.      
"I developed my own individual style, called Graphic Realism, taking realism to a different level by enhancing the reality of a scene through the use of color and chopped linear brush strokes, which provide movement, depth, and a sense of emotion. Texture, contrast, and vibrant color are other elements." This will be her 18th year exhibiting with the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show. "This is the best outdoor venue to display original artwork," said Palser. "In a relaxed atmosphere, customers get to meet the artists up close and personal and view a variety of art to please their inner soul, and hopefully they will have made purchases."
