Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites

In association with the Smithsonian Institution

Diane Hutchinson


November 18, 2016 - February 12, 2017

In conjunction with Baby, It's Cold Outside, Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites happily presents Local Spotlight Artist Diane Hutchinson, Bethlehem native and President of The Bethlehem Palette Club. Hutchinson uses thin coats of paint and applies several layers of glaze to create a luminosity in her work that is reminiscent of stained glass.

“Light infuses a painting with life. It can define a shape, create a mood, and even awaken a feeling of hope. It is always the quality of light in a scene that inspires me to capture it on canvas.”

Diane Hutchinson

Diane Hutchinson has been an artist all her life and feels that a strong sense of design and composition are a must in creating emotionally realistic paintings.

As the owner of her own Fine Art and Design studio she occupies her days painting, teaching small classes, and providing design services to several clients, including Lehigh University. Having been born and raised in Bethlehem, Diane maintains a strong connection to her hometown, her love of which shines through in so many of her paintings.

A graduate of Kutztown University, Diane has studied painting with several well-known artists, including Muriel Griffith, Raymond DiJohn, and Douglas Wiltraut.
