Celebrating Our Differences Art Exhibit at The Gallery at Plymouth Public Library

2017-03-22 10:00 2017-05-15 10:00 America/New_York Celebrating Our Differences Art Exhibit at The Gallery at Plymouth Public Library

A new art exhibit, “Celebrating Our Differences” at The Gallery at Plymouth Public Library offers a wide range of eclectic art; from fiber art exhibiting vibrant quilting to stylized paintings of glamorous people to the inventive drawings using Psychosymmetry. The artworks are by Elise Pennypacker, Paula LaRue and Jill Voelker and are on display through May 1st.

Elise Pennypacker became aware of the world of art thanks to her mother, an amateur painter, and her sister, an art historian who for a few years was part of the NY City Abstract Expressionist School. Elise thought of herself as a craftsperson when she first started quilting. Today, creating colorful landscapes and abstracts she calls herself a fiber artist.

Paula LaRue is recognized for her stylized paintings of glamorous people of an undefined era, often wearing evening clothes and glittery jewelry. These paintings make people smile. In both her lighthearted and more serious paintings, she continues to focus on people doing things, and she invites the viewer to create his/her own story about the characters depicted In her work.

Jill Voelker is a self-taught artist, yet with wonderful artistic influences derived from family members. Jill is currently an art instructor at the Plymouth Center for the Arts, where she offers an Inventive Drawing and Creative design class called Psychosymmetry. She is continuously excited to see what develops in her student’s work (and her own) during a “spontaneous art exercise” - where one original piece can be reconfigured and transformed into many expressive designs.

Also on exhibit is the artwork of local students, ages 10 to 18 and their teacher Terry Kole. With each student selecting a musical artist and instrument as their subject, “The Art of Music” offers visitors a symphony of mediums and creative styles.
