Separate Lives; One Epiphany of Color
Three sisters born of artistic heritage unite their art to tell their individual stories. Discover expressive, illuminating palettes of color with styles unique to each artist.
The artistic talent runs through the Macy genes, dating back to Wendell Macy in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and William Starbuck Macy in the mid 1800’s and mid-1900’s. Beth Heather and Deborah Beth’s mother, Beth Richardson Macy, was an accomplished watercolorist and dollmaker and would join the Macy Women art exhibitions. Sadly, Beth passed in 2006. Her mother, their grandmother, Edith Perry, was a master at watercolor, but not allowed to show during her time period.
The artist trait is a thread that unites the women in the Macy family. Three Macy sisters, Deborah, Beth Heather, and Margaret, have each exhibited professionally for decades, but showing together has more meaning to them. They have dubbed it, “A celebration of our spirits and gifts with a unique family ribbon on top.”
Beth Heather rejoices in nature and depicts the world around her with bold, impressionistic brush and palette knife work, often capturing the beauty of the marshes and shorelines around her Massachusetts North Shore home.
Deborah Beth of New Bedford shows her love of the antique and romantic spirit as she spins tales through her superb figurative work.
Margaret Rose of Maine uses gem-like color in her florals and landscapes. She started painting as a child, documenting the rural landscape around her home in Westport, MA.
