The Paradise of the Heavenly PCT

The Pocono Community Theater in East Stroudsburg, PA held an Artist’s Reception on Saturday April 10th which featured the primarily photographic works of Rod Cameron entitled, “Paradise Found” as well as the oils and watercolor works created Clarissa Jan Ward entitled, “Not only the Earth but also the Heavens.” Although the work had a similar soothing effect upon the viewer, the contrast between the artist’s styles made for a very interesting and satisfying show. One can appreciate being easily caught up in the gentle flow inherent in Ms. Ward’s natural settings while the Digital Photographic Images of Mr. Cameron quietly excites the mind as it endeavors to discover how their wonderful effects were achieved. The exhibition continues until May 16th. You’ll find more photographs relating to the event in The Forwardian Arts Society Pocono Community Theater 2010 Gallery Part 2.
