Richard Daddario

Second floor Dining Room

Painting  was a lifelong ambition of mine that I have been able to pursue since retirement in 2006. My studies have included classes at Woodmere Art Museum and the Wayne Art Center with artists such as Francis Galante, Paul Dusold,  Kassim Amoudi, Stephanie Lieberman, Stanley Bielen and Val Rossman. For the past several years, my interest has been in abstract expressionism utilizing a relatively new technique of cold wax and oil paint.
 
My inspiration comes from observing natures variety of forms, textures and colors, knowing that whatever direction I start will probably change before the painting is finished.

Vitrines

I have been an art studio metalsmith for 40 years and an educator for 10 years. My focus has been on functional one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry and small scale sculptures with wearable elements.

I like to challenge the notion of what makes something precious by combining precious metals and stones with elements such as rusty washers, beach glass and other found objects to make beautiful statement jewelry. As part of a group called “The Trashy Women,” I have unleashed my love of found objects to create intimate purely sculptural works. This has challenged me to learn new ways to create cold connections to securely hold things together.
It is my desire and mission to make wearable art that is both durable and timeless in construction and design.

Suzanne Spain

First floor Salon

Suzanne Spain studied at Bryn Mawr College (BA) and NYU (PhD). After a relatively short career teaching medieval art (the job market!!), she was fortunate to get a position in the administration at BMC, where she worked and taught some for 30 years.

She began painting about 20 years ago and has taken courses at the Wayne and Main Line Art Centers and attended workshops in Italy and France. She draws her subject matter from her own photographs and has been fortunate to have travelled widely. She finds the beauty and challenges in painting shore-, city- and landscapes, people, and dogs. Photos from her many summers on Deer Isle, Maine, continue to inspire new paintings. Country mailboxes, outhouses, rusted out trucks and dogs (see thumbnails below) are as rewarding subjects for her as the grand boulevards of Paris.

In this exhibit at the Cosmopolitan Club, she is showing watercolors of Maine, Paris, Venice and Philadelphia.

Jolan Bogdan

Vitrines

Jolan Bogdan creates fine wire wrapped jewelry which celebrates geological and ecological diversity. Through the juxtaposition of mixed natural gemstones, geodes and metals, her work aims to highlight the vast richness of textures and natural color variations in the world around us. The intricate craftsmanship required for fine wire work, along with elaborate gemstones patterns, stems from her background in weaving and textile design. Through paying the highest attention to detail, quality, and use of nature inspired themes, she hopes to inspire viewers to take good care of the source of these materials: our Earth. A minimum of 1% of all proceeds are donated to ecological conservation efforts annually. Jolan holds a BFA in Textiles from Moore College of Art & Design and a PhD in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths, University of London. She is the owner of Penelope's Den Co, https://penelopesden.com, an Adjunct Professor at Tyler School of Art and Architecture, and author of several academic texts.
