The Art of Hope
While Versea only began exhibiting her art
publicly in the 1990s, she had a lifelong
interest in painting. Here we present a
small sampling of the many oil and acrylic
paintings she produced in the decades
before that. In these early paintings, we
can see foreshadowing of the themes and
images that would emerge in her mature
collages and watercolors.
