BEAUTY: art, gifts, decor

MaryAnn Weselyk grew up in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, an area rich in art culture. Influenced by her surroundings, she studied water color technique and figure drawing under the supervision of two well-known artists, Ray di John and the late Rea Redifer. Weselyk’s extensive study of impressionism, post-impressionism, and the modern revolutionary movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries truly opened her eyes to art without boundaries. As a colorist, Weselyk added the medium of oil for its rich subdued hues and depth. She also likes to work in acrylics for liveliness and spontaneity. Weselyk places emphasis on strength in abstract design, linear movement, and saturation of color with interesting patterns and texture. She feels that by removing one’s self from some literal details, one can express the character of objects and their interrelationships, show fresh detail, and achieve greater beauty and grandeur. No matter how whimsical or perhaps quizzical, Weselyk wants her work to be perceived as believable with a delight to the senses so that a viewer may say with no uncertainty, “yes, of course, pearls are blue!”

Weselyk exhibits her contemporary oil paintings throughout the mid-Atlantic states. She has won awards in watercolor, oil, and sculpture. Her career in art began with acceptance into the Chadds Ford School Annual Art show in 1989. In 2001, Weselyk was asked to be “Donating Artist” and later Featured Artist in 2007. Since then, she has exhibited in many shows (both juried and non-juried), including the Immaculata University Art Show (Featured Artist), Yellow Springs Art show, Chester County Art Association, and Longwood Art Gallery Solo show.
