BELLEFONTE — Local artists Carol Ann Simon Cillo and Steve Getz will be showcasing work at the Bellefonte Art Muesum from now until Feb. 27.

Take a voyage and view exotic sea creatures that include many forms of imaginary aquatic life. From jellyfish that light up and rare bottle fish to a 40″ ceramic pike and a Steam Punk submersible, viewers will be transported into a world of fantasy and adventure.

Cillo and Getz combine a variety of media to create an aquatic fantasy installation at the Bellefonte Art Museum. The window gallery transforms into a giant-sized tank filled with fanciful underwater life of all kinds.

Using media like glaze-red or red and painted ceramic; wood and metal; textiles and fiber sculptural forms or digital art prints — the viewer will experience an underwater world of creatures pulled from artists’ imaginations and installed in front of an underwater background.

In a time when the world reveals one serious and traumatic news story after another, the world of art and imagination provides a way to escape into shapes, colors and designs — transporting the viewer into another world for a while in order to rest, contemplate and possibl swim away from the rigors of daily life.
