Art Exhibition by Linda Flora Opens July 21 at Yocum Institute

An opening reception will be held for a new exhibition called Love Saves the Day by Linda Flora on Friday, July 21st in the Holleran Gallery at Yocum Institute for Arts Education. The exhibition runs July 21-August 25, 2023.

“The arts free the imagination of the nonconforming child inside of me.”

Despite not having a formal art education and only a basic sewing class in home economics, Linda’s professional artistic journey started out with a whirlwind career as a successful children’s clothing designer and manufacturer. Her artsy line, “Honey Bear”, was sold throughout the US and abroad and was regularly featured on trendy TV sitcoms including Full House and Punky Brewster.

Throughout her life, Linda has always been involved in the arts which included acting and theater, voice and dance, creative writing and design along with her current and longtime passion for drawing and painting.

Her book, “Healing with Art, Love Saves the Dy” is the prelude for her unique visual arts program for hospitals and medical offices.

Currently, Linda has settled into a creative fantasia which includes painting, graphic arts, jewelry design, sculpture and teaching intuitive painting workshops. Linda has three daughters and 6 grandchildren who love to paint with their Mimi and whose canvases adorn the walls in her historic landmark house in Leesport, PA.
