Artist Jacalyn Beam has two solo shows this spring. In March, the Station Gallery in Greenville, Delaware opens an exhibit titled A Way of Seeing. The body of work includes over 30 plein air paintings of the Brandywine Valley in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
“I wanted to share local views as seen through the eyes of a plein air, impressionist painter. The historic bridges, farming conservation lands, rambling rivers, and lush landscapes make the Brandywine Valley inviting and unique,” says Jacalyn.
Throughout May, Gallery 222 will be exhibiting both plein air and studio paintings by Jacalyn. Viewers can expect to see a broader range of subject matter Jacalyn also promises some larger paintings fresh off the easel.
Meanwhile, Jacalyn is traveling, crisscrossing the county from Pennsylvania
to Florida to California to Texas and Maryland to paint in juried plein air shows which include Lighthouse Plein Air Festival, Los Gatos, Two Rivers Plein Air and Paint Annapolis. Most recently Jacalyn took part in Chadds Ford Historical Society Plein Air and throughout the year, she will be in Chadds Ford periodically as a juried artist participating in Farm to Table Plein Air.
“I paint outdoors because I find it the optimal way to see the incredibly rich beauty of three-dimensional objects, the subtleties of light and shadows, atmospheric perspective and ‘real‘ colors.”
As a representational painter, Jacalyn’s art is easily understood. One can expect to see images that are inspired by the local landscapes, discernible in content and unique in presentation.
“Her rich palette and sensitive depictions of Chester County places are a winning combination that will reward lingering to appreciate the details,” wrote John Chambless with Chester County Press.
