There is Always the Garden

 

Artist: June Ramsay

Location: SPE Federal Credit Union, 650 North Science Park Road, State College, PA 16803

 

"There's Always the Garden," picks up on a lot of the themes in our area. A gentle nod goes to the Bellefonte Garden Club, the Pennsylvania State University Arboretum, Daffodil Days, our local farmers markets and our huge gardening community. Many parks and individuals in our area have beautiful gardens to be admired.  I love how gardening can be for anyone!  I used a tiny child sized shovel still in my possession from my now grown children & memories of their little watering can as models for the paintings inside the hidey holes.        

 

“I just love the idea of community art!  I want people to feel the beauty of our area, cherish their experiences, and remember friends & family.”

 
About the Artist:

June Ramsay I have been an artist all my life.  I communicate in pictures, colors, and textures.  This is how I see the world and I feel a vital need to create. Painting became my choice medium in 2006.  I frequently use found objects, paper, glass, and impasto mediums to enhance the textures in my paintings. My work has been displayed locally and throughout Pennsylvania in various shows, galleries, and festivals, as well as, nationwide, in private collections.  I am a proud member of the Art Alliance and the Bellefonte Art Museum. June lives and works in State College, PA.
