The spring art exhibition Abstract and Nonrepresentational Painting will open with a reception in Susquehanna University's Lore Degenstein Gallery from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, April 21. The exhibition marks the gallery's 25th anniversary.
The exhibition was co-curated by gallery director Dan Olivetti and gallery assistant Quinn Evans, a sophomore studio art major from Wrightsville, Pa. The show features nine artists, many from Pennsylvania, invited by Olivetti and Evans. Neil Anderson, represented by the Bridgette Mayer Gallery in Philadelphia, joins the show along with Valerie Allen, an artist/curator from Ohio. Other artists include Carol Galligan, Claire Giblin, Susan Gottlieb, Jerome Hershey, Mark Mahosky, John McCluskey and John Myers.
The gallery also will host a poetry reading by Charles Borkhuis on April 24. One of the exhibition artists has created a series of paintings in response to his work.
