Friday for the Arts, March 9, 2018

This month for Friday for the Arts, PAAL is excited to have some of our favorite artists returning to our Galleries.

In the Main Gallery you will be treated to the colorful works of two of our returning artists:

Carolyn Jolly Widmoyer and Mary Patrick Gerlof

Their show, entitled Sunshine and Time,  features a collection of bright batiks, collages and soothing paintings.  Here are some images for that show:

 

In the newly designated Members Gallery [upstairs] PAAL will feature the works of a longtime local favorite:

Milly Horner

Milly says this about her show, entitled "Gifts":

We are all endowed with some kind of gift. It is up to us to leave the world better than when we entered.  Both the world and we being improved as we embrace our gifts and use them.  I was five years old when a silent bell tolled and I became aware that my gift was in drawing.  From there I was given clues to direct me in my journey to fulfillment.  Unfortunately, I missed most of them.

This show reflects a real attempt to get back on track after years of starting and stopping - getting side tracked, seeing false idols and finding dead ends.

Time has not been wasted but used to accept hard lessons and letting go of an ego.  To create not for self or others but to just create.  To use the gift to the best of my ability.
