Gallery Exhibit: PAINTINGS

January 22 @ 5:00 pm - March 24 @ 7:00 pm



Public reception will unveil exhibit featuring paintings by Elizabeth Snelling and Scott Bennett 

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – The Ronald K. De Long Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley presents “PAINTINGS,” which runs January 22 to March 24, 2018. The exhibit features paintings by artists Elizabeth Snelling and Scott Bennett.

The artist reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on January 25 at Penn State Lehigh Valley. Both the reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

“My best work is done with the least amount of conscious thought.  I can liken the process to a psychological itch to be scratched,” said Snelling. “Simple arrangements (vase, flowers, and pear) are a foundation on which to hang my choices of color, line, light and shadow.”

“I am a landscape painter at heart, but need the open-endedness and approach of non-objective painting; color and authenticity of feeling comes first,” said Bennett.

Gallery hours are Monday to Thursday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The gallery is closed on Sundays.  The gallery will be closed during spring break: March 5-10, 2017. For more information and for additional evening hours, contact Ann Lalik, gallery director at annlalik@psu.edu or 610-285-5261 or visit the Art Exhibition website.
