Strokes of Brilliance: Dorothy Bourdon, Bev Bley, Penny Hicks, Kay L. Roscoe
The four of us have painted individually for a number of years. We began painting together nearly eight years ago when introduced to a studio and gallery in Richmond, For Arts Sake, owned by internationally known artist Anne Chaddock. Through Anne we have taken painting trips to France, Ireland, and Italy. We have shown as a group at Studio A, Salem Church Library, Keystone Coffee, and Headquarters Library. As individual artists our paintings have been selected for juried shows at FCCA and Liberty Town in Fredericksburg as well as Crossroads Gallery and For Arts Sake in Richmond. We have entered the Fredericksburg Fine Arts Show and King George Art Guild Show.
Artwork on exhibit through October.
