Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School Art Exhibit 2013  

We make room in our house for beauty, may we appreciate the care and graciousness of God the artist, who takes us beyond the pragmatic and the restrained and leads us into realms of extravagance and boldness, recognizing the power of color and form to open our eyes to new possibilities. Thank you to Frankie Balek and Carol Barth for judging our show this year.  Ms. Balek is a psychotherapist and painter who resides in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  She creates oil paintings full of dramatic lighting that reference the old masters.  She is known for still-lifes, portraits, and landscapes.  Ms. Balek is represented by the Patricia Hutton Gallery in Doylestown.  Ms. Barth is a conceptual and interpretive realism painter who works with oils and pastels.  She has worked as an art teacher and earned a Masters of Fine Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design. Ms. Barth also lives in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
