A special addition to this year's show!!
We are excited to announce that artist Becky Morris is creating a hand carved Schuylkill River inspired wood panel that will be posted outside the gallery beginning Nov. 15!
Examining this year’s submissions for the 14th annual Scenes of the Schuylkill exhibition, I was surprised to see how many artists depicted the same or similar subjects. Interpretations of the same bridge, waterway, or farmhouse demonstrate each artist’s unique ability to capture the beauty of their chosen scene and yet reveal striking similarities. I hope that my selections communicate how one person’s work is unknowingly related to another’s and how the experience of the Schuylkill River is shared by many. This connectivity will hopefully inspire visitors to see that their point of view is echoed by their neighbors throughout the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. It was a delight and an honor to serve as this year’s juror.
