Mr. McKinney is a prolific watercolorist and portrait artist. He studied at the John Hussian School of Art and the Philadelphia College of Art. He paints that which he loves in life; “I am a day to day realist and I like to capture the real person.” Mr. McKinney’s love for jazz music infuses his art with a lyrical sense of storytelling. His rich watercolors are a magnificent portrayal of the black community. They are timeless, touching and have a great quality of familiarity.
Her choice of medium is the colored pencil, and the style of Ms. Eckelmeyer is amazing in detail. She is self-taught and the brilliance of her work comes from her ability to see lights and darks with incredible accuracy. Ms. Eckelmeyer’s work portrays her love of nature. She draws from her heart and truly expresses the joyous and kind spirit of her soul.
Mr. Kuyper studied at the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia. His passion for sports is depicted in the oil paintings of stadiums. The first was “The House that Ruth Built,” Yankee Stadium, circa 1992. Four more stadium paintings, Connie Mack, Ebbets Field, Fenway Park and Comiskey Park shortly followed. They are available as lithographic prints. His latest painting commemorates the historical Philadelphia Phillies 2008 World Series win. It is called “Phinally!” and is available as a limited edition giclee of 2008 and a signed open edition lithograph. Mr. Kuyper is not defined solely by his sports images. Also at the gallery are original landscape oils on canvas that have a soft, romantic quality that capture a moment in time.
Fine art photography is this artist’s medium. Based in historic Bucks County, Ms. Lutz has had a camera in her hands for as long as she can remember. Kelly’s rich artistic background, eye for detail and enthusiasm for photography combine to give you a collection of images that capture a feeling that continually draws the viewer in. Perspectives
Creative pursuits have always been important in the life of Ms. Turner. Whether making clothes for her troll dolls at age seven or painting posters in high school, to refining quilting techniques that go beyond patterned symmetry, she has loved art in all its forms. Ms. Turner’s medium of choice is pastel. As the chalk touches the paper her art will touch the viewer and evoke an emotional response. “If you feel it, I have succeeded.”
“Even as a youngster I was always fascinated with color. In 1992, I began painting dyes on silk. Vibrant sensuous color is what first attracted me to this medium. My paintings reflect my love of color with all its variations and subtle nuances. Nature, with all its moods continues to be my inspiration, however I am frequently drawn to the abstract. Letting my imagination roam freely and acting spontaneously to capture these images is quite exhilarating! In addition to dyes on silk, I work in pastels, oils, acrylics, photography, and fractals. For me, painting is a process of discovery – a willingness to explore what each medium has to offer.”
