A Message from Kathy McElhinny of Strawbridge Art League...
"Our beloved Elizabeth Kaufmann passed away last night (5/25) from cancer. I can't tell you how hard it is to write that sentence. She truly LIVED. Her beautiful soul lit up every room she entered and we would joke about how she was always surrounded by people at parties. You just wanted to be with her. Her artwork! Her amazing artwork filled with hidden images and fantasy landscapes with bright colors and such detail! Her art at the Christmas gift exchanges was so coveted..that really tickled her. Elizabeth and her fellow artist husband Dave are a big reason that there IS a Gallery part of Strawbridge Art League. Their commitment to be one of our "Gallery founding fathers" helped get us out of the Henegar and on our own feet. They have supported us ever since. I hope we continue to make you proud, Elizabeth. You are so loved and will be sorely missed."
