The January 17, 2015 Pinot Paint class was packed and participants said it was lots of fun. Schuylkill Haven’s Stacey McCluskey posted this collage on Facebook of her and friend Leigh Ann Bosak (used with both their permissions). Instructor Missi Allen says there’s a new painting chosen for each class, so don’t be afraid to sign up for more than one date. It’s a relaxing, yet exciting night out. We supply the paint, canvas and expert instruction. BYOB of wine. Go home with a smile on your face and a work of art under your arm!

Future dates:   February 28   |   March 28   |   April 18

All classes start at 7 pm  – Ages 21 and over please.

Lori Remmel Gallery Show

One of our WIAC artists, Lori Remmel, shares a show with Daina Krumins this month at Scranton’s AfA Gallery (Artists for Art). If you’re in the Scranton area, stop by to see her work, which is there now through January 31 on the gallery’s second floor. This event is free and open to the public.

 

From the AfA’s Facebook page: “Krumins’ photo assemblages come from her texture driven non-neuro typical way of finding delight and meaning. Remmel uses collage and darkroom photography to illustrate her inner dialogue and the disconnect between our inherent animal instincts and learned social niceties.” Lori is a mixed media artist and photographer, and she calls Studio 309 “home” at the Walk-In Art Center.
