New Exhibition: "The Road Less Traveled" at Arts Council

New Exhibition: "The Road Less Traveled" at Arts Council

Chambersburg, PA- The Council for the Arts announces the opening of a new exhibition of works by local artists. "The Road Less Traveled: Artists' Journeys" will open with a meet-the-artists reception to be held on Friday February 15th from 4:30-6:30pm and continue through March 29th at the Council's gallery at 159 South Main Street in Chambersburg, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-2pm (Note new hours- closed Wednesdays).
"The Road Less Traveled" will feature artists Helen Leyh of Waynesboro and Teresa Uccellini of Mercersburg. Working in watercolor, acrylic and oils, Helen Leyh interprets the landscapes around her - and makes up her own as well. "My mother was an artist," she explains, "and I learned to paint in oils from her." Leyh's only lessons were in watercolor, many years ago in Cleveland, OH. Now 82, she is working on a ten-foot long mural outside her Rouzerville home!
Teresa Uccellini specializes in watercolors of seaside scenes and flowers. Originally inspired by James Buchanan High School art instructor John Burget, she has experimented in pottery, printmaking and sculpture as well as many two-dimensional media. A Mercersburg resident, she has studied at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts with instructor Bob Wantz, and is currently working on a two-story mural at the nearby Whitetail Ski Resort.
"The Road Less Traveled" will continue through March 29th, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 10 am-4 pm and Saturday 10 am-2 pm. For more information, call the Council at 717-264-6883 or visit www.innernet.net/councilforthearts
