Studio B Fine Art Gallery, 39A East Philadelphia Avenue in Boyertown, PA, announces the opening of “The Edible Woman” on Friday, April 28, 2023, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. The exhibit continues through June 18, 2023. A tour of the exhibit and introductions to the artists will be held between 6:00-7:00 p.m. and featured on Facebook LIVE. A virtual tour will be available following the opening.

Susan Biebuyck, Studio B’s gallery director, and Kristen T. Woodward, college professor and department chairwoman at Albright College, decided to co-curate the exhibit together focusing on what they both loved: food. The exhibit, entitled “The Edible Woman,” is inspired by Atwood’s novel of the same name. “Margaret Atwood’s work highlights empowerment in women,” says Biebuyck who, together with Woodward, describe themselves as “foodie-friends in art.”

Biebuyck and Woodward have invited over a dozen women artists. Those exhibiting are Susan Biebuyck, Alyssa Cuesta, Jane deGruchy, Pam Dent, Crystal Domino, Susan Duby, Suzanne Fellows, Amy Forsyth, Shannon Fugate, Laura Gelsomini, Yenna Hill, Angela Izzo, Karen Palcho, and Linda Rohrbach-Austerberry and Kristen T. Woodward who represent a variety of artistic genre including works in watercolor, acrylic, oil, encaustic, jewelry, printmaking, and ceramics all showcasing relationships to food.

Artists will be featured on episodes of the “B Inspired” podcast, hosted by Jane Stahl throughout the weeks of the exhibit and in articles appearing on the digital news site The Boyertown Area Expression to provide insight into the artists’ approaches and techniques.

Studio B, located in the heart of historic Boyertown, is the home of the Arts and Activities Alliance, a committee of Building a Better Boyertown, a nonprofit Main Street program dedicated to revitalizing small towns.

Studio B celebrates lifelong learning, creativity and personal involvement in the visual and communication arts and seeks to be a dynamic part of Boyertown community, a “go to” destination for learning, fun and friendship. The studio seeks to showcase the work of fine artists in themed exhibits—some juried, some open to all—and welcomes art in diverse media. In addition to art exhibits, workshops, and classes, Studio B also hosts activities and informal gatherings on assorted topics for small groups or meetings, gallery talks, and “Getting to Know You” opportunities.

Visitors are always welcome to view the changing exhibits; take lessons in the visual, literary, and communication arts offered by highly-trained local artists and teachers; and schedule small events or parties in its elegant facility. The studio proudly collaborates with the many unique businesses in the Boyertown community.
