Jean Childs Buzgo is an award-winning, full-time oil painter. She is primarily self-taught, continuing her learning through daily work in her studio. Jean’s rural scenes and landscapes depict her love of nature and farmlands. Her street scenes convey the energy of city life, and the feeling of intrigue of what is in the distance. Her brushwork conveys a sense of movement, filling the viewer with the feeling of the wind blowing, water flowing or the clouds floating by. Jean’s use of vibrant color and light effects move your eye through her paintings. Her work resides in private collections, both nationally and internationally. “I don’t just paint what I see, I also incorporate what I feel into every one of my paintings” says Buzgo.
Jim Rodgers’ oil paintings reflect richness in tone and color in his style that comes from over 40 years of professional study and numerous sojourns throughout America and Europe. His exhibit is a collection of his Bucks County paintings that best represent how and what he sees when roaming around the county. Its been 35 years of watching this iconic area reinvent itself with his painterly impressionist style capturing the nuances along the way. He tries to evoke an emotional response from the viewer through his poetic portrayal of nature and his concept of a “tranche de vie” (slice of life) vision. Jim’s philosophy is “The harder you work the luckier you get. Get up and paint every day.”
