An exhibition of a variety of artworks by Swarthmore artist, Martha Perkins will be on display from March 31 through May 8, 2016 at Swarthmore Borough Hall.
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.
Examples of her work can be seen at her websites: marthaperkinsart.com and petportraitsbymartha.com. You are also welcome to like her Pet Portraits by Martha Facebook Page or at Martha Perkins Art.
The public is invited to the artist’s wine and cheese opening reception on Friday April 1 from 6 to 8 pm, at 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore Borough Hall. The reception will feature live acoustic guitar by local musician, Dean Maola and is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
