The exhibit, entitled “Hope Springs Eternal” presents acrylic and mixed media paintings by Martha Perkins, as well as selected items of her hand-hammered jewelry. The show is a gathering of pieces inspired by the spring season of renewal and new growth, and a reminder of the ever-present possibility of hope.

She maintains a home studio in Swarthmore where she paints, creates leather-work and jewelry, and has established a specialty as a pet portraitist, working by commission.  Her work has been exhibited locally in area venues, and she currently has an exhibit of pet portraits on display at Unity Animal Hospital in Wallingford, PA.
