The Pocono Community Theater (PCT) in East Stroudsburg, PA held Artists’ Receptions on Saturday November 13th in their Front and Back Galleries. The Front Gallery is located in the main lobby area of the theater and featured an exhibition titled, "The Abstract Show." It presented the works of Susan Bradford, Brienne Rosner, Denise Mckellick, Andrea Levergood, and Christine Griffin. The Back Gallery can be found along the corridor leading the theater’s screening rooms two and three. This Exhibition is titled, "Mindscapes" presenting the work of photographer Endel Uiga. Both Exhibitions began November 7th and continues until January 9th.
The afternoon brought a modest number of art lovers out to The Pocono Community Theater which was somewhat unfortunate as the work deserved more of a audience. The work was pleasing to the eye and many had the ability to reach into the mind altering the viewers’ perceptions of everyday reality. The conversation was quite congenial with topics as abstract as the work depicted upon the walls.
