The Shawnee Gallery in Shawnee on Delaware, PA held an Artists’ Reception on Saturday May 22nd featuring a variety of works done by women in an exhibition titled, “Native, Creative, Divine! 2010” The work ranged from Paintings in a number of Mediums to Jewelry Creations as well as Sculptured pieces to Weavings and Quilts. The event was a wonderful opportunity to meet the artists and share conversations with them to gain more insight to their work.
These artists included Bev Abel, Rita Baragona, Flavia Bacarella, Jane Blair, Ingrid Blackert, Susan Bradford, Lisa Fedon, Lindsay K. Gates, Leslie Mulliken, Claire Lukas, Beverly Neremberg, Abigail Porter, Penny Ross, Andrea Robbins Rimberg, and Linda Schwartz. Besides being pleasing decorative as interior for the home or accessories to someone’s apparel, each work resonated with each viewer in its own unique way. If one listen to a piece quietly enough, one could hear something meaningful to enhance his or her existence.
