“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.

Marilyn Lavins, Bernice Paul and Priscilla BohlenActive Adults: Marilyn Lavins, Bernice Paul and Priscilla Bohlen at Center on the Hill, 8855 Germantown Avenue Philadelphia, Pa. 19118

Three visual artists will be showing their paintings at Center on the Hill…the place for active adults. This art show runs from December 2nd until Dec. 29th 2014 and can be viewed for no charge at any time during ‘Center on the Hill’ business hours: Monday through Friday, 9:00am until 4:00pm.

Marilyn Lavins has recently had her ‘Water Works‘ painting selected for the cover of the Surrey Services 2015 calendar. Lavins was awarded first place by Richard Rosenfeld, at Einstein Hospital in Elkins Park, for her collage necklace made from a coat hanger, pearls, silver, and copper. Marilyn has won many prizes and has shown throughout this area. Marilyn Lavins has a BFA degree from Tyler School of Art, has studied at Moore College of Art and Design, and at The Barnes Foundation in Merion with Violetta de Mazia and with Angelo Pinto

Bernice Paul is 97, still painting, and still showing her work. She emigrated with her family, to the US from Moscow, in 1929, at age 12. She has studied art extensively at PAFAThe Barnes Foundation, Fleisher Art Memorial, and The Philadelphia Sketch ClubBernice’s work has been shown at Woodmere Art Museum, Villanova University, Rosemont College, Inliquid, The Philadelphia Art Alliance, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Crane ArtsBernice Paul’s vibrant style has earned many awards; Best in Show at Main Line Art Center and also at Tri-State Artists Equity Association, for her “exciting composition and the physicality and joy of her brush strokes.”

Priscilla Bohlen is a professional visual artist who works on canvas using acrylic paint, with resist. Bohlen applies the resist to a colorful background, then with a palette knife, she covers it all with a complementary color. When the resist is removed, part of the underneath activity is revealed. From there Priscilla enjoys the challenge of resolving the painting, which involves many layers. Priscilla Bohlen loves the surprise element that comes about through this method of painting. Priscilla is a juried member of Delaware Valley Art League, of ARTsisters, and of Tri-State Artists Equity AssociationBohlen is actively involved with the workings of all three groups, when she is not painting.

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.”
