‘A song in my art’
CCAC to showcase 2D/3D work from local artists
LOCK HAVEN — Over a dozen local artists will be showcasing their work at The Station Gallery as part of the 2019 Juried Regional 2D/3D exhibit “A song in my art.”
An opening reception is planned for Friday, Aug. 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the gallery, 2 E. Bald Eagle St., Lock Haven.
This exhibit will be sponsored by Lauren McDonald of the Wealth Factory in Lewisburg who has been a long-time supporter of the Clinton County Arts Council.
“As a loyal sponsor and supporter of the CCAC since the inception of The Station Gallery on 2 E. Bald Eagle St., a well deserved thank you is extended to Lauren for her continued interest in and passion for the arts,” CCAC President Carol Cillo said.
The exhibit will also be juried by local artist Tom Svec.
“As a talented professional artist who has also been actively supporting the CCAC since our beginnings, we welcome his expertise in this capacity for the Station Gallery,” Cillo said.
Svec commends the Station Gallery for its hard work.
“Just the fact that there is a Station Gallery in a town the size of Lock Haven should be reason enough to be curious as to what goes on inside,” Svec said. “There is a bit of creativity in most of use, and much of what finds its way into the Station Gallery reflects the diversity of that creativity.”
15 artists will showcase their work which includes: 17 wall pieces ranging from pastels to fiber techniques and 13 three dimensional pieces that include silver and mixed media jewelry as well as several ceramic and alabaster sculptures.
Artists who will be participating are: Danielle Angeline, Steve Bower, Gail Bower-Geist, Theresa Crowley Spitler, Cassie Englert, Ann Marie Furdock, Susan Gephart, Linda Hale, Philip Huber, Emily Jameson, Elizabeth Lisa Major, Sean Major, Jeff Mathison, Chrissie Englert Smith and Thomas Jackie.
“Having individuals who recognize the real value of the development of creative thinking makes Lock Haven and the surrounding area a better and more exciting place to live and work,” Cillo said. “It is our hope that more people will attend these wonderful activities and become members who help support even more art events.
Cillo welcomes all of the community and those visiting to come to the gallery to see the artwork that will be presented.
Svec also encourages the community to come check out the exhibits.
“Taking in these exhibits may or may not always resonate with the viewer but, like shopping a consignment store, one needs to keep going back lest something really great sneaks under the radar,” he said. “Next time you drive by, stick your head in the door and ask questions. You might be pleasantly surprised.”
