Bernadette Resha – Painting

Born with Down syndrome in Nashville, Tenn., artist Bernadette Resha has collected a sizable following in the worldwide art community. From an early age she was encouraged to draw and color in her own style as a form of expression and therapy. This has resulted in a body of work that documents an artist developing a unique style entirely her own.
Her exposure to the art world and culture started as a child visiting as many art galleries, museums, concert halls and plays with her family, as time would allow.
With an artist grandmother and a mother fully committed to allowing Bernadette to use this medium of self expression for as far as she would care to take it. Bernadette now exhibits in numerous art galleries including several venues in New York, art and craft shows throughout Southeast, and attends many disAbility conferences throughout the United States showing and selling her work. Says Bernadette: “My goals are to increase my skills. I want to improve on painting three dimensionally, on lighting and form, plus shape and shadows, and to learn how to better blend colors.”Art is such an integral part of Bernadette’s life that if all her paints were taken away, she would, instead, sit for hours drawing.

Jim Jennings – photography

My love of photography spans over 60 years.  It began with a 4 X 5 camera in my teens.  As I approach 80 years of age, I have opted for the lighter 35 mm.  In 1984 I had the privilege of spending a week aboard the USS Independence photographing the launch and retrieval of US fighter aircraft.  At the same time I was able to photograph such people as Ray Charles, Kenny Rogers, Brooke Shields, Vanessa Williams, and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, along with a host of other well know celebrities who were aboard filming the TV special, “A Salute To Lady Liberty”.  Landscape photography is my main interest and has won many awards, including local, state and national.
