      this signet print from Alice Virginia Kettelhack, prominent
      Amityville artistk Most people who knew Alice Virginia Kettelhack, a
      prominent Amityville artist, felt the same sense of calm and serenity
      in her presence that they saw in her paintings, She spent much of her
      life painting Long Island seascapes,Born in Brooklyn Heights on
      Christmas Eve, 1917, died July 7, 2003.
      Mrs. Kettelhack enrolled in the Art Students League school in
      Manhattan at the age of 17, where she studied with acclaimed water
      colorists Frank Dumond and George Bridgeman.
      While experimenting with oil paints and pen and ink for many years,
      Mrs. Kettelhack did not discover her favorite and defining medium,
      watercolors, until her mid-50s. Using them, she was able to capture
      the majesty of what she found most beautiful—skies.

      Also having worked as a commercial artist, Mrs. Kettelhack designed
      covers for a music publisher, created patterns for a fashion artist
      and worked at a greeting card company. She designed note pads, using
      pen and ink, which depicted Amityville scenes and were sold in gift
      shops around Long Island. Each Easter and Christmas, Mrs. Kettelhack
      also placed ads in the Amityville Record to paint and sell portraits.
      While she exhibited her work in shows in New England, Mrs. Kettelhack
      also remained active in her own community, displaying her paintings
      in art shows all over Long Island.
      Mrs. Kettelhack was also a member of Penwomen, a national
      organization that invites women of accomplishment; the Salma Gundhi
      Club, an art club in New York that she was invited into and to which
      she contributed paintings every year; and she was a lifetime member
      of the Art Students League. She was also honored in the "Who's Who of
      American Women" and "Who's Who in the East."
