Potter Quartet

Rita Klinger (b. 1943) has degrees from both the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. She has exhibited her work widely in the mid-atlantic region and she is currently represented by Artists' House Gallery in Philadelphia. Klinger frequently works in series, and has said about her own work, "Inspiration for my paintings comes from simple things. For the most part, I focus on a single image. I attempt to interpret the subject in a variety of ways."
