The ArtSpace Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists’ Reception on Saturday August 6th featuring the work of Linda Kreckel in the main gallery while the works of Miharu Lane and Jill Swersie were featured in their studio gallery. The reception also presented images created by over 18 local artists whose works have become familiar to those visiting the gallery over the past several years. In spite of the rain that dominated the day, the attendance was substantial and included a number of Asian students from Shanghai University which is located in the eastern region of The People’s Republic of China at the mouth of the Yangtze River who are visiting to enhance their educational experiences in the field of art at The East Stroudsburg University of PA.
Among the artists who were showing their work alongside those created by Linda Kreckel, Miharu Lane, and Jill Swersie were Andrea Robbins Rimberg, Thomas Augusta, Irene Bartz, Dee Huxster, Irene Bartz, JoAnn Castrillo, Sharon Cosgrove, Wil Daskal, Shirley Epstein, Jim Hannan, Helen Heeren, Marlana Holsten, John Kopp, Bud laRosa, Maria Livrone, Don Manza, Lenore Fiore Mills, Marcos Oksenhendler, KaSon Reeves, Joan Sayer, and Clarissa Jan Ward. The entire exhibition featured images that were pleasing to the eye while treating the spirit of the viewer to move beyond their everyday experiences to examine what can be.
