A blend of color, pattern and texture is the theme of “Teacups and Flowers”, a collection of original works by artists Emily Steinberg and Corinne Lalin. This exhibit will run June through August 2015. Please join us on Saturday, July 11, 1-4pm for a demonstration by Corinne Lalin on the encaustic technique.
Philadelphia artist Emily Steinberg’s paintings of individual teacups are a bright and cheerful tribute to her mother’s extensive collection. Composed of sophisticated patterns in rich color, they are glazed with a whimsical element of balance in which the amplified angle invites the viewer to peer inside. Delicately poised on their saucers, you can practically pick them up and take a sip of tea. Having attained both her BFA and MFA at the University of Pennsylvania, Emily has been teaching and lecturing in the Philadelphia area for 20 years.

The technique of encaustic painting integrates Corrine’s training as an a la prima landscape painter into the world of still-life, flowers, gardens and architectural spaces. Blending the essences of an inspiring subject matter with compelling arrangements of light and color, Corinne creates textured vignettes from the world around her. Acquiring an MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania in 1989, she has been teaching college level art cirriculum for 15 years, and has exhibited in numerous shows sharing her amazing talent as both a teacher and an artist.
