For Bea Kettlewood, mystery is the most important element in any medium of art. Visitors to her current show, “Doors, Windows, and the Weather” currently at the West Side Presbyterian Church can try their luck at uncovering the mysteries hidden in her 16 oil on canvas paintings, four watercolors and solitary silk screen.
The exhibit spans more than 40 years of observation from the artist’s travels throughout the United States.

“There is always a mystery of what is beyond the window or the door,” she says. It’s not a negative such as “stuck inside looking out” or “locked out looking in.” It’s about pondering with fascinating joy while wondering what is on the other side.

She describes her paintings as: “An open window with blowing curtains in the moving air; a door ajar with a hallway light inviting entry; a lighted lamp in the window suggesting warmth inside; an open door framing trees and flowers outside; an open barn door with unfamiliar objects inside creating speculation about use.”
