Touchstone Gallery

August 1-28, 2014




This 38 guest artist exhibition fills two perpetual community needs: that of giving emerging artists the rare opportunity for exhibition space in an established downtown gallery, and that of providing collectors access to new work. The voices in this exhibit offer viewers a range of imagery from the serene to the vivid to the provocative.


Participating artists: Joshua Akery, Steve Alderton, Lisa Allen, Leni Berliner, Ray Bogle, Dana Brotman, Kirstin L. Bruner, Mari DeMaris, Nadia Duchelle, Michael Fischerkeller, Christopher Fowler, Judith Giuliani, Manuela Holban, Warren Hynson, Brian Johnson, Makda Kibour, Diane Kresh, Kung Chee Keong, Reagan Lake, Paula Lantz, Sara Levy-Maio, Andrea Limauro, Donna Lomangino, Shelley Lowenstein, Linda Lowery, Nipun Manda, Pete McCutchen, Julie Miller, Newton More, Georgia Nassikas, Mary D.

Ruffled Feathers avian motifs as metaphors for human activity are the subject for Touchstone member artists working in photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, collage and drawing.  The caged bird sings of freedom and birds of a feather flock together in this exhibit.



Out of Service by Pete McCutchen.

A landscape beckoned:  rows of rusted vehicles, twisted wrecks from somewhere in North-Central Pennsylvania.  Dozens, hundreds, fading into the woods.  They come already aged, wounded, twisted, crushed.  Left exposed,  they are further reduced, eaten away by wind, rain, snow, and sun.   The ought to be ugly, but the decay can do the opposite, creating beautiful patterns in metal and glass.

About Face . . . et al by Bill Mould.

Bill Mould explores the complex topography of the human face, with the many odd, touching and unwittingly hilarious expressions which we use to communicate.
