“Painting for me has always been about using intuition to compose a unique piece with interlacing colors, line, and shapes to achieve an overall visual experience. I currently live in Bryn Mawr, having spent early painting years as a textile designer in New York City, designing patterns for Fieldcrest Cannon bedding. I attended Moore College of Art, graduating with a BFA.” says Priscilla Bohlen, ARTsisters member.

About Beaumont

Beaumont offers you an exceptional, vibrant retirement lifestyle. Talk to any Beaumont resident and they will tell you: “Choose to move here while you are able to enjoy it to the fullest.” Many residents still have active careers as educators, attorneys, financiers, and non-profit leaders, but they are able to come home to a community of caring neighbors and staff and a myriad of lifestyle choices. They can choose to enjoy a wide range of activities and events, from swimming, exercise, fitness classes, on-campus lectures and concerts, to off-campus shopping, religious services and entertainment. Or they can choose to enjoy the quiet of our movie theater, library, arts studio or woodland trails.

Rosemary Cappello’s poetry has appeared in Voices in Italian Americana, Poet Lore, Iconoclast, Avanti Popolo, Sweet Lemons 2Schuylkill Valley Journal, Poetry Ink, and many other publications from 1971 to the present. She has often been the featured reader at places where poets congregate in the Philadelphia area, as well as venues in New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. She was invited to read her immigrant father, John Petracca’s poetry and her own on Ellis Island in 1979, a memorable experience. Her most recent readings were at Fergie’s Pub, sponsored by the Moonstone Arts Center, and the Lansdowne Library, for the Cadence Crafters poetry group. Her poems have been translated into Italian, Spanish, and French. Rosemary’s most recent chapbook is San Paride, named for the patron saint of Teano, Italy. She is currently working on a collection of love poems. Rosemary’s most time-consuming work is that of editing and publishing the annual literary journal, Philadelphia Poets, which she founded in 1980, and planning and presiding over readings in connection with that publication. A graduate of Notre Dame High School, Moylan, Pennsylvania, she received her BA, Summa cum Laude, from Widener University in Chester. Her awards include the Nearing Prize for Literature and Widener University’s Prose and Poetry Awards.

Maria Famà has written six books of poetry, co-founded a video production company, recorded her poetry in CD compilations of music and poetry, and given readings across the United States as well as on TV, Radio, Video, and Film.  She appears in the 2007 film, “Pipes of Peace,” about the late jazz bagpipe musician, Rufus Harley, as well as in the award winning documentaries “Prisoners Among Us,” and “La Mia Strada, My Way.”  Famà was awarded the 2002 and the 2005 Aniello Lauri Award for Creative Writing.  She was the 2006 winner of the Amy Tritsch Needle Award for Poetry.   Famà’s latest book of poems, Mystics in the Family, was published by Bordighera Press in 2013.  Maria Famà lives and works in Philadelphia, where she teaches English at DeVry University.

David P. Kozinski won the Dogfish Head Poetry Prize, which included publication of his chapbook, Loopholes. He has been the featured poet in Schuylkill Valley Journal. Publications include Apiary, Fox Chase Reviewglimmertrain.comMad Poets Review, Philadelphia StoriesPoetry Repairs, Margie, and The Rathalla Review. Kozinski was one of ten poets chosen by Robert Bly for a workshop sponsored by American Poetry Review and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize twice. Last November he conducted a poetry workshop for teens at the Montgomery County Youth Center and in 2012 offered a four-session workshop for adults titled “Poetry Presentation & Publication” at the Manayunk-Roxborough Art Center. He received Honorable Mention in Philadelphia Poets’ 7th Annual John & Rose Petracca & Family Award.In November 2007 he received the Dr. Eugene J. Szatkowski (“Schot-kov-ski’) Achievement Award from the Americans of Polish Descent Cultural Society (AMPOL) for his poetry and visual art. As a young child, he studied at the Delaware Art Museum. In the early 1970s he was a student at the École d’Art Americaines in Fontainebleau, France and was among the students who completed the first Art Major course offered at Tower Hill School in Wilmington, DE in 1974. Kozinski heads the publicity team for the Manayunk-Roxborough Art Center. He lives in Wilmington, DE with his wife, actress and journalist Patti Allis Mengers.

Serious Play, ARTsisters, Center on the HillResilient Retreat, monotype by Linda Dubin Garfield

Center on the Hill8855 Germantown AvenuePhiladelphia, PA 19118 invites you to SERIOUS PLAY, a group exhibition featuring artwork by ARTsisters Priscilla Bohlen, Linda Dubin Garfield, Karen Leibman and Ruth WolfUsing a variety of styles and media, these artists make you smile and make you think. The exhibit will run November 1- 26, 2014Center on the Hill Gallery is open to the public Monday – Friday 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.

ARTsisters is a group of professional women artists who empower each other and the community through their artARTsisters was founded in December 2005, by Linda Dubin Garfield who realized that her long-time friend and fellow artist Leslie DeBrocky (since deceased) functioned as more than a friend when it came to discussing and helping with her art. She was really an ARTsister, one who understood the process and could really understand the highs and lows involved with the challenges of a professional artist. Together they opened membership to other women and, through word of mouth, now have 24 members and an email list of more than 75 interested women artists. Sharing resources and offering support to each other, the members now have shown, both individually and in groups,  including shows in Chestnut Hill, Old City, Manayunk, Wayne, Wynnewood, the Wilmington Arts Commission in Delaware, the Widener University Art Gallery and the City of Philadelphia Board of Ethics. This spring ARTsisters will have their 10th Anniversary ART Show at Jenkins Arboretum.

Some of the non-profits we have collaborated with include: Adopt A Pig, Endow-A-Home, Philadelphia FIGHT, Juvenile Diabetes, The Cancer Support Community (formerly The Wellness Community of Philadelphia), The Food Trust, The Heart Association, Child Advocates and Laurel House.”
