Dee’s Art Reception

Posted by clymerlibrary on April 13, 2012

  • Come join local artist, Dee Kasarda, for her Art Reception this coming Saturday, April 14th from 1 to 3 pm. 

Dee began painting at age 40 when her daughter left for college.  Blessed with a natural gift, painting became an outlet for her creative energies.  She has studied locally with Jean Littlefield, Sally Millspaugh, John James, and Tim Weaver.

Her work has been on exhibit at the Pocono Mountain Arts Council, in various businesses in Penna, and in Dee’s Deli located in Pocono Lake.  Numerous commission pieces hang throughout the United States and overseas.  Watercolors are her medium of choice although she has worked with both oils and acrylics in the past.

15 years ago, her husband insisted that she paint a self-portrait.  “We never see ourselves as old as our birth certificates indicates,” explains Dee.  “I often feel like a teenager trapped in a much older body.  Surrounded by my favorite things, you can see the transition starts while looking in the mirror.  My glasses have disappeared.  The little girl on the canvas is from a photo of me at 15 months.”

When making art, Dee attempts to capture an emotion, to tell a story, or to bring a long forgotten memory back from the past.  Whenever possible, Dee likes to add a touch of humor to her work.  “Life is too short to waste time taking yourself too seriously,” Dee tells us.  “I hope you find something in my work that inspires you to live everyday, and never miss a laugh.”

Again, do not forget!  Dee’s reception will be on Saturday, April 14th from 1 to 3pm!   The artist will be there, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have!
