Meet the Women and Whimsy Artists at a complimentary reception on March 4 from 5:30-7 PM at the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center, located at 226 North High Street in West Chester.
Sponsored by the Regional Center for Women in the Arts, The Women and Whimsy Art Show will run through March 22. Half of all proceeds from artwork sales will be donated to Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children.
In the exhibition, Marisa Boyd, Judy Goodkind, Sharon McGinley, Nancy Sarangoulis, Lois Schlacter, Ruth Wolf, and Valetta share their vision of whimsy with playful paintings, prints, and sculptures. The artwork will surprise the gallery visitors with colorful accents, picturesque surfaces, and finishing touches in bright tones.
In her collage, Chicken Charmer, Goodkind creates a visual allusion that is a brain teaser and invitation to puzzle-solving. Working with found images, she builds her pictures from widely disparate sources. Seamlessly integrating cut-outs and paint, she creates logical presentations of illogical reality.
Valetta, the RCWA’s founder and director, said, “My artwork is an expression of dreams, glimpses of scenes in passing, memories, and juxtapositions.”
A screening of the documentary Maiden follows at 7:30 PM. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
