Studio B Fine Art Gallery, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA, announces the opening of “Flora and Fauna”— an art exhibit on the theme of Earth, the ecosystem, and all life on it—on January 28, 2022, from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. The exhibit is sponsored through the generosity of Suzanne Biesecker through the Effenesse Foundation and continues through April 17, 2022.
Mother Nature’s art and all expressions on the planet—of home, life, health, politics, race, religion, environment, gender, diet, industry, landscape, or anything in the universe—are open to the artists’ interpretation. Art in all media, from oil, pencil, and watercolor to clay, glass, and fiber, will be represented. This annual exhibit celebrating the environment showcases dozens of local artists and offers an array of styles.
A virtual tour and awards ceremony will be held between 6:00-7:00 p.m. on Facebook LIVE and archived as a Facebook event and on YouTube following the opening. Amy Muzopappa of Muzo Media Productions hosts the art tour.
Juror selecting exhibit awards is Karen Palcho—artist, educator, gardener, and fermenter—whose interests are rooted in transforming earth-based raw materials and plants into things that are beautiful, tasty and useful. She founded Karen’s Botanicals Natural Skin and Body Care Products and is the co-owner of Nu-Art Graphics-Industrial Screen Printing and Die Cutting, located in West Chester, PA.
Several awards are sponsored in memory of patrons and artists that Studio B has lost recently: Nancy Boyer, Mary Lou Haddad, Bob Misko, Bonnie Wren, and Ineke van Werkhoven. Sponsors include Frecon Farms, LLC; Jamie and Jeff Cascino; Glick’s Greenhouse; State Theatre Preservation Society; and Linda and Jack Lignelli;
