    Cary Galbraith

    I am an oil painter, working from the academic tradition of painting from life. It is a way to see deeper, in other words, to understand the three dimensional form and the effect that light has on it. I feel the essence of the subject is more evident. It has atmosphere and energy that comes through, therefore, the viewer is compelled to stay and gaze at it for a while.

    Moving back to southeastern Pennsylvania, 20 years ago, has inspired me daily to discover the landscape right in my own backyard.

I am endlessly challenged by its beauty and how to translate it into paint.

I relish the intimate relationship that can be had between a viewer and a work of art, which is why I decided to open a gallery in West Chester, PA. There is a feeling of ownership as one stands before a piece of art and something connects deep within them. It is in this connection that something much bigger steps into place and turns one’s heart so meaningfully to wood and paint with such depth.

    Dale Roberts

    Encaustic is a Greek method of painting with the root word “caustic” (to burn in) key to its understanding since the paint has to be literally burned in to produce the final paint film. The encaustic paintings, drawings and works in other media reproduced in my website are evidence of a continual dialogue with the visible world around us. Each piece represents a unique reaction to a particular place, object, light, condition or season.
