Faculty art exhibit to begin Oct. 17 at Penn State Abington

Discover and celebrate the extraordinary talent beyond the classroom at the Penn State Abington faculty art exhibit, beginning Oct. 17 in the campus’ Woodland Gallery.

Art students at Abington are nurtured by a diverse faculty who maintain active and exciting careers in their own right. Art lecturers Chris Bonner, William Cromar, Richard Gabriele, Walter Plotnick, Emily Steinberg and John Thompson represent the areas of drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics and new media. Works by Senior Lecturer Yvonne Love and Associate Professor of Art and Integrative Arts Bonnie Levinthal round out the exhibit. Levinthal also organized the show.

Meet the artists at an opening reception from 3 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, in the Woodland Gallery, Woodland Building lower level, 1600 Woodland Road. The exhibit runs through Dec. 9.

Cromar, coordinator of the new media concentration at Abington campus, will discuss his art at a second reception on Oct. 19 in Philadelphia City Hall from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Two of his pieces have been included in Following the Line, an exploration of the line as a feature that defines two-dimensional flat space and three-dimensional form.

Following the Line is presented by Art In City Hall, a juried and community exhibition program that showcases contemporary artwork by professional and emerging Philadelphia visual artists. Following the Line runs through Dec. 2.
