"A busy Fall Art Scene & the Influence of Mentors with “Uncommon Denominators” and “Celestial Spheres”!
The Fall line-up for Gallery shows is heating up with September’s First Friday openings for new shows this Friday, September 5th all over Chester County. New Fall Class schedules are also available now for sign-up at The Chester County Chester County Art Association and The Oxford Art Alliance.
"There is a double show for artists Katee Boyle and Lele Galer entitled “Celestial Spheres Shining” which will open at Galer Estate Winery‘s Pop up show this Thursday September 4th from 4-8pm, and then reopen at The Chester County Art Association’s Exton Gallery for an art reception from 1-4pm on Saturday September 6th. The Exton Gallery exhibits art in its gallery in the Exton Mall, (located between Boscovs and H&M) and features a different artist every month. Katee and Lele are friends who decided to collaborate on an over-the-top, exploratory, mixed-media show that highlights their own unique points of view. The show’s title is from Dante’s Inferno, and suggests an other-worldly realm of shining spheres, angels and dreamscapes. Katee and Lele are showing a combination of welded steel pieces, encaustic, fabric and oil paintings. Katee says, “‘Celestial Spheres’ represents my movement as an artist, growing forward and upward while exploring different mediums that I have been exposed to by fellow artists. Like the motion of a sphere, sometimes, it feels like running in circles to get to what i feel is the “next level.” Both Lele and Katee acknowledge a great debt to artist and mentor Stan Smokler whose summer welding workshop introduced them to the fascinating and wonderful medium of mig welded steel. Both openings should be a lot of fun."
