Featured Member Artist: Veronica Gledhill

Veronica Gledhill was born in Philadelphia. From Chestnut Hill to Greysferry, the childhood city neighborhoods of her youth were rich in various cultures and economic diversity. She spent many weekends in “the country” on her architect-grandfather’s farm in Bucks County, PA. Gledhill’s art reflects that range of experience as her choice of painting subjects can be the still beauty of a person, place, object, abstract expression, or, a sometimes stark allegorical image. Veronica’s teachers have been the Philadelphia area museums, libraries and art galleries as well as private lessons, adult classes and the long closed Lewis Institute of Art in Lansdowne, PA.
Her work has been viewed in juried exhibits and other art exhibits:
