Le Secret Oui Dutot

The Antoine Dutot Museum and Gallery in Delaware Water Gap, PA held an Artist's Reception on Friday July 24th for their exhibition titled, The Secret Life of Sunflowers and Other Stories.” The exhibit featured the work of Tricia Lowery Lippert whose variety of colors and subjects immediately captured the eye and heart of all who were fortunate enough to enter the gallery on that beautiful Summer day. And, there were many a heart and eye to be captured by Ms. Lippert's work as the number who came to partake of its wonders was enormous.

A beloved assortment of flowers, animals, and scenic depictions filled the gallery with their profound beauty. The myriad of aesthetic approaches Ms. Lippert employs in her work extends the variety found in the diversity of her images even further as she leads the viewer on an adventure filled with color and light and whose destination is a more appreciative contemplation of the world around them. The conversations the work inspired reflected its beauty and diversity and was enhanced by the variety of delicious food created lovingly by Ms. Lippert's husband, Lonnie, who is professional chef. Yum.

To say Ms. Lippert's work is inspiring would be an understatement as everyone who is touched by its qualities are enhanced beyond measure. I recommend viewing the work while it's still on display. I hope to go back to the Dutot to revisit the work. It's that good and I hope to see you there as meeting and chatting with you would add to their delights. In the meantime, you'll find more photographs taken during the Artists' Reception in Le Secret Oui Dutot Gallery at

Tricia Lowrey Lippert comes from a small town on the Connecticut shoreline from which its surrounding marshes, beaches, and forests inspired her to become an artist from an early age. By the time she was sixteen, she was taking extra art classes at a local arts center as well as attending an arts oriented high school. She later received a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Oil Painting from Marlboro College in Marlboro, VT in 1981. Ms. Lippert also studied at the Banff Centre of Fine Arts in Banff, Alberta, Canada during the summer of 1979 and continued her art education at various art institutions. Ms. Lippert has since shown her work in a wide variety of galleries.
