Art Opening

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Rodger LaPelle Galleries, Philadelphia, PA
YOU ARE INVITED: ARTIST OPENING RECEPTION
On April 7, 2017, Rodger LaPelle Galleries is pleased to announce the show of work by Paulette Bensignor.

We will be showing her imagined landscapes inspired by the energy created between wood and garden.

With a career spanning over 40 years and works in public, private, and museum collections, Bensignor’s artistic process is painstaking, technically meticulous, and her use of abstract forms and lines are unique to her art.

The ultimate goal of the work is to engage the viewer in a dialogue with the complex images, and, then, to allow the viewer to interpret the meanings hidden in the form. She believes we exist because we exist, because we can. Many of Bensignor’s underlying themes play tribute to the strength of persistence in nature until it succeeds over all obstacles.

Stars And Stripes — Betsy Ross Flag

Betsy Ross Flag

PHILADELPHIA — The first U.S. flag to feature stars on a blue field is known as “the Betsy Ross Flag” and “the Stars and Stripes”. There is little factual evidence to the story that Betsy Ross sewed the flag. It is believed that “in June 1776, when a small committee – including George Washington, Robert Morris and relative George Ross – visited Betsy and discussed the need for a new American flag. Betsy accepted the job to manufacture the flag, altering the committee’s design by replacing the six-pointed stars with five-pointed stars.”

Thirteen stars represent the original colonies: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut, Massachusetts Bay, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Stars were added to the flag as states were added to the country.

The thirteen stripes also represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the United States. Legend attributes the red on white as symbolism for blood on white bandages.

The Betsy Ross house is located at 239 Arch St, Philadelphia, PA 19106. The exterior of the house can be viewed for free. There is a small charge for a ticket to tour the interior.
