The works of artist Rose Marie Strippoli are now displayed at the Bucks County Visitor Center, 3207 Street Road, Bensalem, sponsored by The New Hope Arts Commission and funded in part by The Borough of New Hope and The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. The exhibit will be open through June 30, 2006, and is free and open to the public. Images are available upon request.

More about the artist:

Rose Marie Strippoli creates her art with a variety of media including acrylic, ceramic, watercolor, wood and enamel. Since her first public exhibit in 1991, she has been recognized with numerous awards and ribbons:

-2005 Best of Pennsylvania promotion, placed third in both pottery and acrylic

-2004 Ohio Watercolor Society, “Doug Pasek Memorial Award” for acrylic, Rising Star

-2002 Firelands Area Art Exhibit, “Best of Show” for watercolor, Eternal Flame

-1992 Clyde Art Show, “Best of Show” for wood sculpture, Geisha

Strippoli’s artistic metamorphosis and diverse media reflect her changing life experiences, illustrating vividness, excitement, starkness and somberness in turns. Finding inspiration in exploring new ideas and information, she says: “For me each medium is simply a vehicle for my artistic intent, proclaiming the message of the moment. The question is: Which one am I inspired to communicate through today?”

Strippoli has been the subject of several individual shows in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Her work has also been exhibited in many juried shows such as the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society in 1998, 2004 and 2005, the Susquehanna Valley Art Association in 1998, and the Society of Experimental Artists in 1993. She was part of the Ohio Watercolor ’04 traveling exhibition.
