The Pocono Community Theater in East Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists on Saturday March 6th featuring a show entitled, “Artist and their Mediums” exploring the work of six local artists created on various mediums. These artist included Lenore Fiore Mills whose medium was Batik, Jan Selving whose medium was Collage, Jim Hannan whose medium was Charcoal, Julie Wane whose medium was Pastel, Don Manza whose medium was Photography, and Marcos Oksenhendler whose medium was Watercolor. Each set of works reflected the individual artist’s approach to their creative endeavors but there was also a flow connecting the entirety of the works unifying the experience for those who attended the event.
This flow allowed the viewer of the pieces to connect with a widening concept of the world around them. By observing each medium and how seemingly very different approaches created a coherency, one gains an opportunity of examining the apparent random incidences embodied in their life’s journeys to discover their apparentness is an illusion and they aren’t random at all. In fact, it’s a very intricate pattern which can be understood as our awareness becomes receptive of its flowing nature. The exhibition will continue at The Pocono Community Theater until April 3rd.
