A paintbrush, a canvas and a studio barn is all Joanne Landis needs to tell a story. Joanne Landis’ paintings will be on display in Gallery 255 at the Public Library for Union County throughout the month of November.
Joanne considers herself a “narrative” painter. “My figures, mostly women, are often meditations on archetypes, myth or personal experience,” said Joanne. “This allows me to build an environment inhabited by beings with all that it means to be human, alive, and still in a dream.”
Joanne is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. As a native New Yorker, Joanne has taught at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the New School in New York City. She has also taught at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Her work has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions. Most recently, Joanne earned second prize in Susquehanna University’s 10th Annual National Figurative Show and will hold a painting workshop on December 8 at the Pajama Factory in Williamsport. Joanne currently resides in her rural utopia in Troxelville, PA telling stories with a paintbrush in her rustic studio barn.
An artist reception for Joanne is scheduled for Monday, November 11 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
Artists and organizations are encouraged to apply to exhibit items of artistic, cultural and intellectual interest in the library’s gallery and/or display cases. For more information, visit UnionCountyLibraries.org/home-page/info/displays/.
The Lewisburg Arts Council invites you to join them for their Twentieth Annual Stroll Through the Arts / Dance to the Music on Friday, November 1, in historic downtown Lewisburg.
At this one-night-only arts experience, twinkling luminaries line Lewisburg’s sidewalks as art-lovers wend their way along Market from Water to Fifth Streets. From 6 to 9 pm, 50 artists will display their original work in 40 different shops, studios, and galleries all along five blocks of downtown Market Street. Although the artists work in a wide variety of media, from clay to metal to wood, and in styles ranging from realistic to abstract, all are from the central Susquehanna Valley region and will be delighted to chat about their inspirations and techniques. Nearly half of this year’s artists are new to the Stroll, including one who will be selling edible art!
This year’s Stroll Through the Arts will again feature our Passport program. Anyone who visits and has checked off the required number of businesses in specified blocks of downtown is eligible to enter a drawing for downtown Lewisburg gift certificates. Passports are available at any of the participating businesses as well as on the Lewisburg Arts Council’s website: www.lewisburgartscouncil.com. Completed Passports must be turned in at the Lewisburg Deli, 334 Market St., by 9:15 pm; the drawing will happen at 9:20 pm. Entrants do not need be present to win.
