I am so honored and excited to announce that 2 of my wool paintings have been accepted to the Nature Art Showcase and Sale! The show will be held at Barrow-Civic Theatre; 1223 Liberty Street, Franklin, PA and is is part of the “Franklin on Ice Festival” held in Franklin, PA.
Artwork was to be inspired by and represent the natural or outdoor recreational assets of Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Mercer, Venango, Forest, or Warren Counties.
The event is sponsored by the council on Greenways & Trails https://www.nwpagreenways.org/
Typically available are 2-D and 3-D items including paintings, sculpture, metal fabrication, fabric arts, jewelry, wearable art, photography, pottery, drawings, wood carving, watercolor, and more. Showcase hours open Friday, February 7 with a free public reception featuring the artists from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m.; and continue on Saturday, February 8 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
One volunteer was quoted as:“It’s so refreshing on a winter day to enter the comfortable display area and view widely varied colorful art celebrating four seasons of outdoor recreational experiences and natural settings throughout northwestern Pennsylvania,” said Mrs. Marilyn Black
The public is invited to attend the Friday evening, February 7 Artists Reception from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., or the Saturday open hours from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
During the Friday evening reception, musicians will be strolling throughout the art display area. Juliet Hilburn of Hydetown (who is a member of the Franklin Silver Cornet Band) will play the flute. Violins and fiddles will be the instruments of choice for 9-year-old Danae Hansford of Knox, PA and 16-year-old Danika Stroup of Clarion County; both violinists are accomplished performers of classical as well as bluegrass/country music.
Also, the Friday reception will be catered by John Kluck with appetizers, desserts and family friendly drinks.
I will be there Friday night 5-7pm. I would love to chat with you about my wool paintings. I hope you can stop by for this wonderful event!
