Gettysburg College Hosts Adams County Arts Council Juried Art Exhibition
Published June 18, 2013
I know, I know. The Gettysburg Festival is officially over, but I still want to talk about some of the great ongoing art exhibits that are currently running during the summer months.
Gettysburg College’s Schmucker Art Gallery displays seven to eight different exhibitions, showing work from local, national, and international artists, as well as traveling exhibits of works selected from both public and private collections.
Offered in partnership with the Adams County Arts Council and the Gettysburg Festival and jurored by Kate Stewart, Artist and Professor of Art at West Chester University, the Adams County Arts Council Juried Art Exhibition is open for public viewing from 10am – 4pm Tuesday through Sunday until July 7.
Co-chaired by Louise Garverick and Judie Butterfield, the exhibition features works from juried artists:
M. Jane Albin, John Armstrong, Millie Bankert, Sarah Becker, Eileen Colgan Bowling, Anne K. Byrne, Jack Chambers, Philip Colgan, Paul Colomb, Tom Conway, Pamela Cooper-White, Susan G. DeVan, Barbara Ebaugh, Audrey Farnsworth, Sue Fehringer, Anne Finucane, G.L. Gasowski, Geoff Grant, Nanette Hatzes, Maaike Heitkonig, Betty Henry, Tim Hirneisen, Teresa Jarzynski, David Keperling, Celeste Lauritsen, Jim Lauritsen, Joli Miller, Kerry Mott, Wanda Murren, Alan Paulson, Arlyn Pettingell, Jill Rakowicz, Carol Rinehart, Ann Ruppert, Ted Scarpino, Mel Shull, Andrew Smith, DiAnne Smith, Peter Smyth, Dana Stewart, Andrea Miller Theisson, Geoffrey Thulin, Barbara Wilke and Anne Zabawa.
The Art Gallery at Gettysburg College seeks to enrich the cultural life on campus, in the community, and throughout the region, and given the caliber of artists that appear in this year’s juried art exhibition, they’ve certainly succeeded. The combination of exhibitions and programming through lectures, gallery talks, and class visits helps to deepen our understanding of art and the cultural importance of artmaking.
