2020 Members Winter Show

Come “walk” around the virtual Montgomery County Community College North Hall Gallery, stop to study an interesting piece of artwork, click on the artwork to see it in greater detail and see the information about the artist and the piece. All while listening to a harp piece by Harpist, Betsy Chapman. There are paintings, sculptures, and photography—some of it with a keen view of the pandemic and its impact on local artists. Barbara J. Zucker, PWS Artist, Educator, Gallery Director, Juror and President Emerita of Philadelphia/Tri State Artists Equity was the Juror for this show.

This virtual exhibition is online from now through February 8th.

(Since it is a virtual gallery that you can actually “walk” around in, it will take about a minute to load. If you want to hear the music and don’t, it could be that your browser settings do not allow media to autoplay. Typically you can change that setting. Enjoy the show.)

Work on display includes landscape paintings and wildlife photography, abstract work, and the inventive wood sculptures by Jack Hanson.  Guild artists have also made use of inventive mixed media, including the vinyl and PVC collages of Trina Poage and Rhonda Counts’s use of bamboo, clover, and other natural materials in her paintings.  Of the work on display this year, MCCC Galleries Director Patrick Rodgers noted several specific pieces that are reflections of the times. These include the skeleton-like figures of artist Krysta Bernhardt, which are reminiscent of the Belgian surrealist painter James Ensor, a jigsaw-like abstract painting by Sandy Alves called “The World in Chaos,” and a depiction of the COVID-19 molecule simply titled “2020” by Christina C. Franklin.
