Jacalyn Beam was born in Chester County, PA. Her early training in art was rooted in the history and beauty of the Brandywine Valley. She holds a B.S. in Music, M.Ed. and Ed.D. and has always held a passion for painting. The Wyeths, Sorolla, Sargent, Sotter, Schofield, and Thayer are a few of her favorite artists.
Jacalyn is a member of the American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, Washington Society of Landscape Painters and the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association (MAPAPA) . She served on the Board of Directors of MAPAPA and the Chaddsford Historical Society for eight years.
Costas Anastasiadis was born in Athens, Greece during the waning days of World War II. He began to develop his artistic skills as a child, in the studio of a Greek-American artist, and later on in a studio that he shared with his brother working on copies of Greek vases and sculptures. It was in 1968, during a time of political and economic uncertainty, that Costas left Greece and pursued his aspirations in the United States of America.
In the United States he married, started a family and became a successful homebuilder earning recognition as a builder of aesthetically pleasing and well-designed homes.
Following his home building career, Costas dusted off the brushes he had brought from Greece more than forty years ago and began to work on his first love, painting.
Today, Costas’ passion for painting is manifested in his most recent works exhibited here.
Artists showing include: Elise Phillips, Randall Graham, Stefanie Lieberman & Dannielle Mick
