The Pocono Community Theater* in East Stroudsburg, PA held an Opening Reception for their exhibition entitled, “Masks Art Show” on Saturday October 3rd featuring the works of numerous artists. The variety of work was impressive as each mask (which are commonly designed to hide an identity) revealed something about the artist who created the piece. Besides the revelation of the creative talent the artist processes, exploring each piece touched something deeper. And, if one ventured even further, they would see themselves and the masks they wore. The exhibition continues until October 31st.
