Rita Baldwin, the owner of the Orchid Gallery, is an artist with a passion for oil painting. She has been a member of Chatham Artists Guild since 2007 and has served on its board. Rita’s studio and gallery are inside a converted horse barn on the same property as the orchid greenhouses.
Each of her paintings seeks a direction of its own. One day Rita’s work is influenced by the overriding mood of the scene, another day calls for bold palette knife strokes, and still another calls for large and loose brush strokes that create a dreamlike softness. She is especially drawn to vanishing points in rural areas, remote coastal and river locations, creatures of the wild, flowers, and more recently, a collection of the figure in landscape.
