WHAT'S NEW (Please scroll Down for all our goings-on in art, music, workshops and events)
Dear friends, we have decided that community health concerns must be paramount at this time, so we are closing our gallery through the end of March except by appointment. We will monitor the situation and re-evaluate as circumstances evolve. We wish everyone good health, patience and peace. We hope you will take this break in your routine as an opportunity to create some art and share it! We will be doing just that. All the best, Your Friendly Neighborhood Artists
Karl Koeller, our Spotlight Artist for February, is a graphic artist and cartoonist who will be at our opening and at the gallery every Sunday in February. He is a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and has worked on many graphics projects as well as his own cartoons and artwork. Ask him about his work or about sequential art such as comics and the history of cartooning and animation.
The March Spotlight Artist will be painter Louisa Kroner. Her opening date is Sunday, March 8, 2-5 pm. This is her first solo show, so we hope you will come and celebrate with us!
The rest of the gallery displays works by the rest of our membership in pastels, oils, watercolor and acrylic paintings, photography, sculpture, jewelry, mixed media and textile art. Not all of the art in the show is Black and White, by design, so that the contrast is most evident and interesting.
CONCERT: The boyos are back! Flash Company returns on Friday, March 6 with their annual concert of Irish chunes! We'll have our bake sale too. Venue: United Methodist Church of Hyde Park, Church Street & Route 9, 7:30 pm. Tickets $15.
