Earthworks Art Exhibit
April 9, 2021 @ 9:00 am – April 30, 2021 @ 5:00 pm EDT
EARTH WORKS, an art display featuring the landscape photography of Art Heim partnered with ceramics pieces by members of the Art Alliance Potters Guild, is on display at the Kish Bank, Expect More Store, 114 South Allen Street, March 1 Through April 30.
This is the first collaboration between the KISH Bank and the Art Alliance of Central PA. Kish Bank has long been a supporter of the arts, hosting shows for the last several years and participating in the First Fridays sponsored by the Downtown State College Improvement District. This show will be the first with the Kish Bank, Expect More Store joining the Art Alliance Outreach Exhibitions Program.
Art Heim is an established photographer with the majority of his works depicting nature. After spending two years in the Peace Corps in Africa, he has continued to travel the world capturing images of the natural spendor. Says Heim “My primary artistic interest lies in the graphic interpretation of the beauty and uniqueness of the natural environment through landscape, wildlife and cultural imagery and a deep desire to share the work for the enjoyment of others”. On current display are 33 of his images including exotic landscapes from 3 continents and local attractions such as Black Moshannon, Whipples Dam, Watkins Glen and PSU campus.
EARTH WORKS also includes 18 pieces showing some of the diversity of 9 local ceramicists who are members of the Art Alliance Potters Guild. These pieces include sculptural forms by Linda Hale, a set of maracas by Jan Dillon, a life-sized rooster by Mark Messenger and platters by Melanie Rosenberger. Other Earth Works clay artists include Randy Doughty, Holly Foy, Tiffany Friday, Linda Gonclaves and Linna Muschlitz.
EARTHWORKS was conceived and curated by Holly Foy with assistance from Jan Dillon. Both are members of the Art Alliance and the Potters Guild. Most items on display may be purchased by contacting the Art Alliance. This show can be viewed during Bank Hours and masks are required.
