New work by Philadelphia artist Reta Sweeney July 12th through August 4th, 2013. Artist reception Friday, July 12th, 6 – 9:00pm.
“I began painting at a very young age, not knowing what I was doing of course, and minored in art in my college preparatory high school. I have continued to search for that really good painting I feel is inside me somewhere. So, in that quest I have studied at Fleisher Art Memorial, The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Woodmere Art Museum, Bucks County Community College, Rowan University and have taken numerous workshops with well-known artists. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art.
I paint still life and plein air alla prima. But, interest in people has brought me to both my nursing career and to my love of the figure in art. In this group of paintings I have enjoyed capturing people in their daily lives…in whatever they happen to be doing.
And the quest and the passion continues…” Reta Sweeney
