PCA&D welcomes you to visit the Main Gallery exhibit Folklore which is currently on view through April 4th. The exhibit features original Pennsylvania Dutch Fraktur folk art drawings brought into the context of similarly themed art works created in our time. Showcasing these paintings, drawings and prints together provides the opportunity for the viewer to delve into conversations about works of art created during different points in history.
On Thursday March 20th at 4:00 pm all are welcome to join the Folklore panel discussion in the Atrium with participants Amy Cutler, Clare Grill, Baker Overstreet and Benjamin Edmiston - all of whom have artwork featured in the gallery. This event is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
At today’s Artist Talk at PCA&D, Sharon Core encouraged PCA&D students to be patient. “There’s no shortcut,” she said as she described the painstaking research and meticulous effort she uses her photography to recreate and interpret still life painting by artists including contemporary painter Wayne Thiebaud, 19th-century artist Raphaelle Peale, and floral artists from 1606 through 1907. Sharon Core is a NYC-based photographer whose experience as a food stylist and inspiration from contemporary artist Wayne Theibaud, inspired her turn painting from photographs the “other way around.” This image by Sharon Core, is “Early American, Strawberries and Ostrich Egg, 2007.” 23 x 17 inch Chromogenic Print. Also pictured: Sharon Core, center, with Lexa Buechler, senior photography major, left, and Eric Weeks, PCA&D Chair of Fine Art & Chair of Photography, right.
