Patricia M. Nugent Gallery at Rosemont College Presents Landscapes/Seascapes/Escapes by Artists of the Center for Creative Works
The Patricia M. Nugent Gallery is pleased to announce a new group exhibit featuring artists from the Center for Creative Works. The show, titled Landscapes/Seascapes/Escapes, will be open to the public from November 8 through December 4, 2018. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, November 8 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., with an informal gallery talk at 4:30 p.m.
This group exhibit is an exploration of open spaces by the artists of Center for Creative Works. Through representation and abstraction, these artists engage in a variety of ways with the idea of place, pulling from a range of thematic inspiration, from both personal and found material. Center for Creative Works is an art studio for adults with developmental disabilities in Wynnewood, PA. It fosters individual expression and aesthetic development, promoting its artists' work through public exhibitions, art fairs, and other events in the community. CCW artists have been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Outsider Art Fair in New York City, Crawford Gallery in Ireland, and Fleisher/Ollman Gallery in Philadelphia.
The exhibition artists are Jenny Cox, Levin Henry, Cory Jenkins, Timothy O'Donovan, Tim Quinn, Karen Toff, and Carl Trunk.
“We are thrilled to exhibit at the spacious Patricia M. Nugent Gallery,” said Virginia Fleming, art preparator/archives coordinator and one of the organizers of the exhibit at the Center for Creative Works. “Our goal is to provide a space and support for people with intellectual disabilities to express their creativity, and we’re delighted to share our artists’ work with the Rosemont College community and beyond.”
The Center for Creative Works combines supported studio art development with work opportunities-including supported employment options – and community programming. Participants learn and work in drawing and painting, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, sculpture, textiles, design, music and other media. A staff of mentor artists teaches professional materials and techniques, with the goal of developing participants as artists, artisans, and designers.
The Patricia M. Nugent Gallery is located on the Rosemont College Campus, 1400 Montgomery Avenue, Rosemont, PA. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., or by appointment. For more information, please call 610-527-0200 X2967.
