New Art Exhibit Coming in August! SFoA Presents Photography by Jay Ressler.

“Country Roads: An Uncommon Take”

An exhibition of original photographs by artist Jay Ressler will be on display from August 1st through September 1st, 2019, at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore. The public is invited to the artist’s opening reception on Friday, August 2nd, from 6 pm to 8 pm. Both the exhibit and the opening are free, kid-friendly and open to the public.

The artist is a native of Berks County. He graduated from Albright College with a degree in psychology and afterward relocated to Pittsburgh, working as a coal miner and later as a foundry machinist. He was very active in the arts, participating as a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and serving as a board member for the Pittsburgh Society of Artists.

Mr. Ressler has exhibited throughout the area including, among others, the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, the Art Association of Harrisburg and the Lancaster County Art Association.

As a digital photographer, Mr. Ressler creates intriguing composite photographic images. This exhibition offers a set of contemplative rural photographs, evoking a sense of somber reflection into our countryside history. The artist says: “I explore boundaries — the boundaries between consciousness and the unconscious; between reality and imagination; between humanity and nature; and between certainty and skepticism. The result often conjures up a note of mystery or magic.”

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. For information about Swarthmore Friends of the Arts, visit www.swarthmorearts.org or contact Exhibit Chair Martha Perkins, martha.perkins@gmail.com.

Coming Soon: “Reflections”, an exhibit of Susanne Adams original photography, highlights the abstract beauty of architecture and nature.

Courtyard Shadows, Mexico
Courtyard Shadows, Mexico

An exhibition of original photography by local artist Susanne Fell Adams from Wallingford, will be on display from August 31 through October 1 at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore. Swarthmore Friends of the Arts will be hosting an artist reception Friday September 8, from 6-8pm where you can meet Susanne and view her work. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public during the Hall’s hours of operation.

The “Reflections” exhibit highlights the abstract beauty we see and may overlook daily. The exhibit is presented by the Swarthmore Friends of the Arts in the Swarthmore Borough Hall venue. Mrs. Adams photography focuses on strong patterns of light, shadow and reflection, which bring to light architecture and other unexpected imagery we might often take for granted. Her artistic philosophy is “to capture the beautiful essence of the unnoticed in our daily lives.” As an art major at Muhlenberg College, her background in tile making, mosaic, jewelry and metal works along with painting have influenced her photographic style. Mrs. Adams continues to grow as an artist, and has exhibited over the years in local gallery showings – most recently at the Media Arts Council Gallery. This will be her second appearance at Borough Hall, “Reflections” is her solo show.

Exhibit hours are M-Th 9am – 8pm, Fri 10am – 7pm, Sat 10am – 3pm, Sun 1 – 5pm.

Swarthmore Friends of the Arts is the community group responsible for the rotating art exhibits at Swarthmore Borough Hall. For information about Swarthmore Friends of the Arts visit www.swarthmorearts.org or contact Skip Gosnell, Publicity Chair at 484-343-2728,  chilichaz13@gmail.com.
