“Beauty”, a wise woman once said, “is whatever gives joy.” Beauty, another wise woman said, would make a great name for a gallery. The first woman was Edna St. Vincent Millay. The second is DVAL sponsor/member Paula Farley Jackson.

Joy is something you’ll find in every persuasion at Beauty Gallery, in original paintings, jewelry, antique and vintage pieces, gifts and celebration accessories. Paula is committed to fine art and artifacts, made in the USA, and Pennsylvania in particular, whenever possible. Owning a gallery has been Paula’s dream since junior high school. She planned for it strategically, using her marketing and communications background to pave the way.

Paula believes in educating her clientele about the intrinsic value of owning original art. As someone who paints, she speaks from the heart about the wonder of transforming a flat canvas into something that moves people emotionally.

Beauty Gallery hosts 6 art shows annually. Look for a “places and faces” themed Call for Entry soon! Meanwhile, why not make an appointment to show Paula some of the beauty you’ve created recently?
