Lesta Bertoia, originally a Pennsylvania artist, showed locally for almost thirty years, including in group shows in the Allentown Art Museum, the Baum School in Allentown, and the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, as well as with the Pottstown Artists’ Guild. She had one-woman shows in Emmaus, Boyertown, and Quakertown, and has collectors not only in Pennsylvania but also on the West Coast. Her works have found homes in the Lehigh Valley Hospital as well as in schools, libraries, and offices.
She has since moved to Maui, where, newly inspired, she continues to paint.
Slideshows of her work, accompanied by various pieces of music, can be viewed on Youtube.  She can be contacted at
