Daily Painters of Pennsylvania Exhibiting at PA Capitol


HARRISBURG - The Daily Painters of Pennsylvania 4th Annual Capitol East Wing Rotunda Exhibit opens June 3 and will remain throughout the month. 

Following the Capitol exhibition, the DPP travels to Brath &Hughes Fine Art Gallery in Mechanicsburg for a July exhibition and First Friday celebration.

Founded by Mary Beth Brath, the DPP is dedicated to promoting the work of Pennsylvania artists. Membership is juried. In recent months, member artists have shown in New York City, Scottsdale, and throughout their home state as a group and as individual artists.

“The Capitol exhibit is special for us because it has developed a following of collectors and visitors,”Brath said. “Our artists are grateful for this enthusiasm and support and we always look forward to this exhibit.”

DPP members work in many mediums and paint all kinds of subjects. From traditional oil paintings of still life scenes to contemporary abstracts in encaustic, to mixed media work, the DPP painters represent many interests and styles. Brath said this diversity of style and subject is part of the charm of the group.

“We are as diverse in our painting lives as we are in our personal worlds. But, we are united as working artists of the Keystone State,” Brath noted. She pointed out that the members live and work in all areas of the state and bringing them together to exhibit in Central Pennsylvania is always a fun adventure for the group because some of the painters have never met face-to-face.

In addition to being here at the blog, visitors are invited to follow the group on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/dailypaintersofpennsylvania?fref=ts
