Susquehanna House Opening Reception

I love opening receptions; great artwork to admire, artists and patrons to converse with, and delicious snacks--all good! Last Friday's reception at the new Susquehanna House Gallery was a lot of fun, and once again I was reminded how lucky I am to be associated and exhibiting with the very talented members of the PA Arts Experience. There I am above with my work; I had the opportunity to talk with people about the inspiration and the execution of it, which is a pleasant adjunct to all the hours I spent in the studio making it. I snapped a few shots of some of the other artists in attendance; below is Carol Oldenburg with her gorgeous painting of the river:
And Rob Evans, in a snapshot that doesn't begin to do justice to the beauty of his work:

And Phyllis Koster, with her intricate weaving:

Here's Cindy Hinkle (l) and Carol Foley Bolt (r) (holding the exhibit postcard), who work tirelessly on behalf of the artists to make exhibits like this possible:
And Kristan Winand, the Gallery Director, who did a great job of putting it all together:

Here's a crowd scene of the meeting room, adjacent to the gallery rooms, which has windows looking out onto the river:

A view through one of those windows of the Susquehanna River at Long Level at dusk:

Also adjacent to the gallery is a room that Rob is using as a temporary studio, taking advantage of the view. What a great place to work!

The exhibit is up until September 5th, be sure to stop in if you are in the vicinity of Wrightsville, PA.
