The Yellow Wall Gallery at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore is pleased to present “Summer in Winter: A Visual Escape, a group exhibition of photographs and paintings. The opening reception and Luau party will be on February 19, 2010 from 6pm – 9pm.
In the dead of winter, our minds start to wander to thoughts of warmer and brighter days. We close our eyes and imagine the days when we could bask in the hot sun and the nights we could drive on a moonlit country road with all the windows down. We say to ourselves that we would gladly welcome a sun-induced sweat over the chill of cold air on our necks. Some are able to travel to a tropical getaway, but the majority of us rely on our recollections and imagination to get us through the bitter cold months.
For this exhibit, artists submitted images that evoke a desire for an escape from the cold, dark and dull days of winter. The imagery in the gallery will allow the viewer to imagine warmer, brighter and summery days.
Exhibiting artists are: Alyx Bowen, Tara Chickey, Karen Commings, Barbara Dugan, Gary Edmiston, Stephanie Fisher, Susan Glessner, Andrew Guth, Al Holliday, Marvin Israel, David Kern, Susan Kramer, Liz Laribee, James Lentz, Kathy Martin, Laura Mathews, Jennifer D. Nardis, Michael Pasqua, Jenelle Rittenhouse, Tom Sanfilippo, Marchelle Shelton, Sean Simmers, Donald K. Uvick, Paul Vasiliades, Cindy Ward, Kyle Williamson
