Latrobe Art Center presents “A Walk on the Wild Side,” an exhibition featuring the works of regional artists Becky Mormack and June Drexler Robertson. The exhibit runs from Monday, October 7 to Saturday, November 9.
“This show speaks to anyone who loves animals and nature,” says Lauren Buches, executive director of Latrobe Art Center. “Both Becky and June are skilled in capturing the textures of animals—from feathers and fur, to scales—that they almost seem to jump off of the canvases.”
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 17 from 6 – 8 p.m. Appetizers and refreshments will be available at the opening reception, which is free to the public.
The artists are excited for this opportunity to share their deep love of nature and animals. “Our styles compliment and differ in such interesting way, “says June Drexler Robertson. “Visitors will experience a range of vision with this show from sweet pets to wild nature.”
For more information, please call June Drexler Robertson at either 724-216-5655 (land line) or 724-640-8306 (cell), or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
