The Adams County Arts Council will feature oil paintings by Anita Williams and acrylic paintings by the Carella Family during the month of March. A First Friday opening reception is scheduled for Friday, March 4 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and is open to the public.
The program, “Forces of Nature,” will be featured in the Gallery.
Anita Williams says of her work, “My art celebrates the movement and spirit of nature. Whether I’m working from observation or imagination, nature is always the initial spark of inspiration. I grew up among the salt marshes and pine barrens of southern New Jersey. I now live in the oak and hickory forest of central Pennsylvania. I love them both. I try to walk in the woods every day. I observe, I record beauty using a sketchbook, a camera, my phone or my memory. I take these recordings to my studio where I try to recapture my feelings in paint. I am not trying to copy nature, but I am trying to paint the way that nature inspires me. I hope to transfer these feelings to the viewer.”
The Carella Family Exhibition combines acrylics and mixed media works to be featured in the Reception Hall.
Fabio Carella blends his passion for artistry and cooking in his paintings and both express his emotions and life experiences.
