Studio B Fine Art Gallery, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue, Boyertown, welcomes visitors to the gallery for a pop-up exhibit featuring the artwork of Robin Kulp, Holly Anasiewicz, and Brittany Spicer entitled “Getting to Know Us.” The exhibit opens on July 26, 2019, 5:30-8:30 p.m. during Boyertown’s monthly “Corks for a Cause” evening and will run through August 2, 2019.
Kulp, curator of the exhibit, is a senior art education major at Kutztown University minoring in art history and currently serving as an intern at Studio B. Kulp’s oil and acrylic hyper-realistic still-life paintings showcase the technical skills she’s practiced during her studies. She challenges her audience to look closely at art because, she notes, “sometimes what you first see isn’t what it truly is.”
Anasiewicz’s photographs taken at the Borneo rainforest in Malaysia and in Thailand are designed to raise awareness of the deforestation the countries have been facing since the 1960’s following extensive logging practices. Native orangutans rely on trees to escape predators and are now dangerously exposed in the bare areas of the forest.
Spicer’s mixed media portraits capture human emotion and serve to showcase her desire to communicate the therapeutic benefits in creating art. Her goal is to own a studio where children who have experienced abuse or hard times are encouraged to work out their emotions through artistic expression.
“FACES of Boyertown” is the current exhibit at Studio B featuring photographic portraits of those who live, work, and/or visit Boyertown. In the Gray Gallery through August 25, 2019, is an exhibit by Ron Schira entitled “Experiments, Wanderings and Inquiries: Works on Paper.” Schira has served as the area’s leading art critic for the Reading Eagle for over 24 years.
