Juried Landscape Show: Gallery360 is re-opening in its new location at Tellus360, on the second floor, above the bar. Gallery director Quinn McNichol has organized a Juried Landscape Show, which features over 30 artists from both near and far; about half the work represents local Lancaster artists, while others are from New York, Maine, Wisconsin and Texas to name a few. The works vary from plein-air paintings done from observation, to studio creations that pull inspiration from the landscape. On display are mostly paintings, but there is also some photography, an altered book collage and a relief print. Work was chosen by guest judges Dorothy Frey and Glen Cebulash; both artists will also have work hanging in the show. As part of Tellus360’s outreach to students, there will also be a display of student work in the gallery, representing Hamilton Elementary, Penn Manor High School, Hempfield High School, Washington Elementary, Edward Hand Middle School and JP McCaskey High School.

Annex 24 Gallery

Monochromatic or Achromatic – which is which?: A variety of artwork highlighting the difference between monochromatic and achromatic.
