Star gazer lilies with their delicate pink hues, roses and peonies with their alluring vibrancy, apple blossoms with their future fruit cradled by soft white petals. It sounds like a springtime stroll through a lush, bountiful garden. But this floral paradise exists inside, adorning the walls of the Olitsky Art Gallery at Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen. These scenes of natural splendor are the watercolor creations of artist Barbara Rosenzweig, whose work has been described as “a breath of spring” by longtime congregant and gallery organizer Norma Jarrett.
Rosenzweig is currently the featured artist at the Beth Or gallery in a month-long show that began on Friday, May 13th. In addition to Rosenzweig’s signature floral paintings, the exhibit displays her watercolor renderings of winter landscapes, lake and beach scenes, quaint country cottages and even the bustling South Philly Italian Market. The collection of 42 paintings in the Beth Or exhibit also includes some of Rosenzweig’s vivid tablescapes of realistically luscious-looking fruit.
