Showing in May
John Kovaleski is a writer, artist and teacher living in Gettysburg, PA. Best known as cartoonist for MAD Magazine and the comic strip Bo Nanas, he is also an instructor at Gettysburg College, Adams County Arts Council, and Creative York. Using a unique combination of charcoal, paint, and twine, Kovaleski creates abstract expressionist paintings to explore both the physicality of the act of painting as well as the tangible limitations of the piece of art itself.
Amilia K Spicer
“West of East”
Amilia K Spicer, L.A. singer/songwriter, and Americana songstress, is returning to her native Pennsylvania roots to debut a photography collection compiled from trips taken to Southeast Asia, California and native Pennsylvania.
When asked about her photographic artwork, Spicer says, “We live in a constant state of over-stimulation. Our lives, brains, schedules are over worked and overbooked. Artists in all fields can be especially fatigued by this, because it can feel like our little blooms of beauty have no staying power in the nanosecond attention span. I am both guilty of this as a consumer and defiant of it as an artist. I guess I’m trying to create an oasis that will somehow allow people to take a breath and be taken over by something beautiful.”
C. K. Roulette
A selection of Kib Roulette’s digitally remastered slide photographs is on display in the Studio. The show was orchestrated by his children who are very proud of their father’s work.
“He loved using slide film. At that time, colors were crisper and brighter than regular film… I feel like he has captured some interesting subjects and that even our family pictures are thoughtful,” – Kate Rice, daughter.
“Variations of Land and Sea”
Jim McCabe graduated from New Paltz State University with a degree in art education and from Yale University in 1974 with an architecture degree. He taught high school art in Wappinger’s Falls, New York. He was the co-owner of a commercial insulation business from 1978 until his move to Gettysburg in 2002 from Long Island, New York. He has painted with acrylics since 1965 and experiments with various styles. He also enjoys making model ships from scratch and has recently had a whaling ship model accepted into the permanent collection at the New Bedford Whaling Museum in New Bedford, Mass. He has received several awards for his artwork. He also does commission work. Jim is hoping that the paintings in this show will exemplify his passion for various interests, including the beauty of the rural community, the sea, the people in his life and classic cars. He and his wife, Brenda continue to live in Gettysburg, PA.
