About the Artists
.
Roberta Beasley lives and works in Vienna and Great Falls, Virginia. Ms. Beasley received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois. She also studied at the University of South Florida, Maryland Institute of Art, and Northern Virginia Community College with Jay Orbeck and Lois McArdle. She was a resident artist at the Arlington Arts Center for many years. Ms. Beasley now enjoys sharing studio space with 15 other artists at the Great Falls Artists’ Atelier.  She has been the Director of the Great Falls Foundation for the Arts Gallery, located in the Atelier, since 2011.

Beasley’s art reflects the world around her: recent travels, ocean horizons, lily ponds, and the majestic beauty of the sycamore tree. Several of her works have been selected in recent shows; by juror J.W. Mahoney in the 2012 MPA show, “Activating the Void,” and by juror Jack Rasmussen in the 44th Annual Treasury of Art show for the Vienna Arts Society in 2013.

Renée Lachman received her MFA in painting from George Washington University and a BFA in painting and drawing from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.  She has shown widely in the Washington area and has exhibited in Philadelphia and New York.  Her teaching affiliations include Montgomery College, Friends Community School, The Art League and Northern Virginia Community College.  Renée was a Maryland artist-in-residence whose work was featured in “Inspired Results, poets and artists of Takoma Park, MD.”

Known throughout the region for her poetic, peaceful watercolors and oil paintings, contemporary realist, Jill E. Poyerd, is an award-winning artist whose work can be found in private collections across the country. She exhibits extensively throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, has been featured in numerous solo or two-artist shows, and is the author of the watercolor instruction book, Fearless Portraits. Her work has been featured in Watercolor Artist Magazine, and she is a signature member of several prestigious art societies, including the National Watercolor Society and the Baltimore Watercolor Society. In addition to her work as an artist, Jill is an active member of the Washington D.C. metro area arts community both through group show curation and as the current head of the Fine Art Professionals of Northern Virginia. She is also the co-founder of INTRO-TEK.com, and author of three of its Creative Guide workbooks.
