Upcoming Show: Sarah Irwin Show

Sponsored by Eschbach Bus Service

      The next show at the Quarryville Library is cutting edge work by Sarah Irwin, a recent Solanco High School Graduate who has already had work displayed in several galleries around the area including the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She is currently attending Maryland Institute College of Art.  Her show will include a collection of  "various mediums and meanings". She calls the show Assemblage of Various Artwork".  It consists of drawings and paintings mostly of people. The mediums of these works include charcoal, graphite, pastel, oil paint, and a few mixed media pieces.

   The works include pieces she made her senior year of high school, and pieces made during her freshman year of college.  The work explores the teenage mind including themes of sadness and depression. There are also pieces in the show that are of nature, animals, and other objects. College has taught her to "open my mind to new forms of art and experimental ways of creating."

   The show will open at a reception in the C.X Carlson Gallery of the Quarryville Library on Saturday, May 14 from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM.  Come and meet the artist and enjoy refreshments provided by the Art Committee of the Quarryville Library.  The show will be open during library hours until June 30, 2016.
