LOCK HAVEN — After a year long hiatus due to cancellations and COVID-19, The Station Gallery held an opening reception on Friday, May 12, at 6 p.m. for an exhibit called “The Birds.” This was an invitational exhibit featuring 14 artists and a range of different mediums.

The artists, many local, include: Ron Beach, Kraig Brady, Fred Bucheit, Kasey Campbell, Carol Ann Simon Cillo, Steve Getz, Lynn Kibbe, Karl Leitzel, Mickey Mapstone, Anni Matsick, Tammy Quigley, Deb Stabley, Deb Trate and Bruce Wallace. The show was judged by Joanne Landis.

First place went to Debra Moffit for her painting of trains called “Vintage 32.”

Second place went to Zelma Lang for her mixed media piece called “Many Paths-One Humanity.” Zelma is local to the area and is a retired pastor.

“I’ve dealt with different people and religions. We share a common path, but we’re all striving to be happy with our creator,” she explained the meaning for the piece.

CHRISTINA WILLIAMS/THE EXPRESS An honorable mention went to Steve Bower for his “Ceramic Totem.”

Third place went to Philip Huber for his piece with a scratchboard technique called “Rekjanesfolkvangur, Icaland III.”

Judge Joann Landis said, “The subtlety of color and the powerful graphics make it a very strong piece.”

Last, but not least, the fourth place winner went to Rita Bower for her work called “Spirits.” There were two honorable mentions to Steve Bower for Ceramic Totem and Theresa Crowley Spitler for Rhythm and Blues.

The Birds Group Invitational Exhibit will have additional days for viewing on May 22, 23, 29 and 30.

Due to the help of volunteers, the station will be open Saturdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sundays 1-4 p.m.
