The Sherman Theatre in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists’ Reception on Thursday June 24th featuring a variety of works of over 25 artists all conforming to the dimensions of trading cards which are 2.5“ x 3.5“. A modest number of works were upon the theatre’s walls but one aspect of the reception really stood out. This was the opportunity for those attending the show to create their own trading card with material readily on hand at a table near the theatre’s entrance. This gave those who came to see the work a chance to move beyond being mere spectators to become part of the creative process.
In addition to the work hung and being created during the reception, music filled the walls as well. I arrived late so I missed the performance given by The Amazing Rezlep' and Tom Asselin of “Lewis and Clarke.” But, I did get to catch the performance by Eryk Pelzer whose music is fun to listen to as it has a flair for the theatrical. He was accompanied by Jennifer Smith who interpreted each song through the art of dance. The Exhibition will Continue until August 31st. You’ll find more photographs at The Forwardian Arts Society Visual Arts 2010 Gallery at www.myspace.com/forwardian_arts.
