July Exhibit "Tickled Pink"
Through August 1

The word pink was first used in the 17th century to describe the delicate color found in nature. Dale Sheldon’sacrylic “Orchard Pathway” portrays rows of trees in an old orchard. “Vibrant pink blossoms are silhouetted against a bright blue sky, while shadows play in the foreground and the sunlight shines through the branches.”

“Pink is the color for me.  I love how this soft color blends so beautifully in the gardens and bouquets with all the other colors.” Pretty in Pink” watercolor by Dianne Shearon is a delicate still life of pink roses.

Joyce Condry’s acrylic “Grounded” poses questions about an abandoned boat.  “How did she get here…did a storm carry her out of deep waters, was it a deliberate grounding or did she just become too old and tired to work anymore?  Why did the owner abandon her…..was it for lack of money for upkeep. Of course the biggest question is…..why was she painted pink?”

The phrase “tickled pink” was first recorded in 1922 to describe ones face turning pink with laughter when being tickled. It has evolved to mean being amused and delighted. Tara Funk Grim’s, Candyland, pink and yellow acrylic shows the energy and joy in being at an amusement park in the summer. “Tickled Pink” pastel and gouache by Laura Hickman captures the momentof “my sister's first visit to a swimming pool.  Not only was she ready, standing in the sunlight with her bathing cap and lifesaver, she was tickled pink to be there!"

Artist Pat Riordan’s, “Survivors”, mixed media usesboth the color pink, the symbolic color of breast cancer and the phrase, “everyone is tickled pink with the increasing number of survivors of breast cancer.
