Artist of the Month
Sally Slifkin (for March 2019)
Sally Samuels Slifkin has been painting for all of her adult life. She loves painting landscapes which include architectural interest. Most of her work has been in acrylic on canvas although she has dabbled in pastel, gouache and oil. Sally has recently moved to Arlington, VA from Allentown, PA, where she has lived most of her life. Her artwork is mostly inspired by the Pennsylvania farmland which surrounded her town. She finds beauty in the simple life; a farm, a fence in a field, a clothesline, a backyard. She also enjoys painting from photographs she has taken while vacationing, both here and abroad. In addition, she has illustrated a children’s book series, “The Royal Series”, written by her daughter.
Sally has had her paintings exhibited in several solo and group shows in the Allentown, PA area. Her artwork is in the permanent collection at Just Born Candies (Peeps), Lehigh Valley Hospital, as well as in many private homes. She served on the board of the Lehigh Art Alliance for 12 years. She is the Membership Chair of the Arlington Artists Alliance. A graduate of Chatham College, Pittsburgh, PA she has studied painting in Pittsburgh, Allentown and Arlington.
