Through Time

Eileen Wilson

Eileen Wilson of Middlebury Center presents a retrospective display of her watercolor, oil, acrylic, theorem, and china paintings titled “Though Time”. Eileen has been painting for 70 years, and until recently continued to paint every day even though she is now 90 years old. 

Eileen has been a member of the Wellsboro Art Club since she and her family moved to the area in 1993. She has no formal training, but took classes from other artists, including Marcie Copley, from whom she learned how to paint china. Eileen even taught some classes herself. 

Eileen’s family is thrilled at this opportunity to display a lifetime’s worth of her artistic achievements.

My Thoughts

Letty Burd

Letty Burd is a resident of Gaines and a longtime member of the Wellsboro Art Club. This is a retrospective of 44 years of her acrylic paintings called “My Thoughts”. 

Letty is originally from Ohio and has been painting since she was a child. She received formal art training at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington and the San Francisco Art Institute. She has been an active member of the Wellsboro Art Club for years. 

Although her favorite artist is Van Gogh, Letty’s works are all original, from her imagination. She often sits with a blank canvas until inspiration strikes, and says that “Each painting inspires me to do the next.”

From Scratch

Lynn Kibbe

Lynn Kibbe from Trout Run is proud to display her collection of recent scratchboard art titled “From Scratch”. Lynn has no formal art training, in fact, she learned many of her techniques from watching YouTube videos.  Since early 2009, she has created scratchboard art with a focus on particularity and dramatic light. Scratchboard is a very tedious medium, and it takes many weeks to complete just one art work.  Lynn’s main focus is on horses, wildlife, and an occasional still life. Lynn is a Signature member of the International Society of Scratchboard Artists, and she shows regularly in their exhibits.  She also shows at the Clinton County Arts Council’s Station Gallery and the Bald Eagle Art League’s exhibits.  

Lynn donates regularly to many not-for-profit charities such as the SPCA, Beckoning Cat Project (Williamsport) and Appalachian Horse Help & Rescue (Linden). She plans to give 10% of her sales from this exhibit to Second Chance Animal Sanctuary to support their cause.
