Carol Deutsch

Carol Deutsch's works on paper are inspired by sumi-e brush painting,

eastern and western style calligraphy, manuscript illumination and in a bit of

whimsy, by "magical creatures". Her paintings and drawings are a

meditative art form as well as a means of expression. Deutsch is also a PhD

in physiology who studies cell biology at the Perelman School of Medicine

of the University of Pennsylvania.

Ryan Drummond

An architect by training and profession, Drummond brings the sensibility of

a designer to the creation of artworks that explore continually evolving

interests in history, architecture, urbanism, art history, and literature. These

cultural aspects find expression through the media of drawing and collage,

where he builds upon the legacy of analytical and speculative visualization

that has recurred within architecture discourse through the ages.

Tom Herbert

Tom Herbert exhibits in the Philadelphia area. In his mixed media work,

which is a blend of collage, painting and assemblage, he attempts to reflect

and distort the world around us. His method of work involves deconstructing

print images and reassembling them in a way that creates a new narrative.

Robert S. Hunter

Robert S. Hunter presents a series of prints that use predominantly earth

tones and texture to explore personal narratives which also have political and

biblical sources. Some are more specific and others more general in theme

but all are combinations of allegory and metaphor offered as reflections on

contemporary culture. Hunter is a former arts educator and recipient of

numerous teaching awards, including a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation


Bill Kendzierski

Bill Kendzierski wants people to see his sculptures as 3D photographs and

uses life casting and fiber and resin to create works based on the human

form. sculpting hyperrealistic pieces. He exhibits in the Philadelphia area.

Judith Schermer

Judith Schermer;s work has been described as "contemporary realism". She

combines imaginary elements with others from her sketches and

photographs to create images of city homes and scenes which convey a

sense of quiet intimacy, place and time.

First Friday, May 5, 5-9 pm

Artist Reception: Sunday May 7, 2-4 pm

In Drawing Wilfred Owen, Cone presents work based on the poems of Wilfred Owen, one of the British "Trench Poets" of World War I.  After a pause of several years, she returned to the poems and made a journey to the battlefields from Verdun, France to the Menin Gate, a monumental portal in Ypres, Belgium that honors the 54,395 missing Commonwealth war dead killed in the Ypres Salient.  It was through the original city gate at the site that British and American soldiers left for the front. Having come of age during the Vietnam War, Cone finds that the poetry of the Great War is incredibly powerful and resonates with her. She translates this feeling into her visual work.  Her show includes pastel drawings, photographs, and mixed media.

Cone has an MFA in Painting from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.  Prior to that, she was a fine art photographer working in platinum and palladium.  Cone has exhibited extensively in Philadelphia, the Tri-State area and around the country including Maryland, Texas, New York City, and New Orleans. Her work is in collections in the Delaware Art Museum, and the art galleries of the University of Notre Dame and Vassar College, as well as in corporate collections.

Abstract and elemental movement is at the center of her artistic process.

She is Incorporating shapes and lines that mimic the rhythms and the forms of organic materials from the nature by using a mixed media of acrylics, oils, pastels, embossing paper and digital prints.
