An exhibition of original artwork by local artist Joan Sobel will be on display from September 5 through September 29, 2018 at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore. The public is invited to the artist’s opening reception on Friday September 7, from 5 to 7 pm. Both the exhibit and the opening are free and open to the public.
Mrs. Sobel began painting as an empty nester, taking lessons at local community art centers, along with countless hours of exploration. “The work I produce is inspired by a love of nature and outdoor spaces. I find myself drawn to the colors I see when looking out the window. A painting evolves as color meets paper or canvas, free to change with each brush stroke. I begin without a real plan, the composition and colors on the palette guide me. No painting is complete until I feel its sense of balance and harmony,”
Exhibit hours are Monday to Thursday 9 am to 8 pm, Friday 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday 10 am to 3 pm, Sunday 1 to 5 pm.
The exhibit is sponsored by Swarthmore Friends of the Arts.
