Avenues Winter Art Scene
NEW AND COOL AT ART PLUS GALLERY
There's always something new at Art Plus Gallery, 604 Penn Avenue. The exhibit in the main gallery changes every two months
to showcase the newest work from all 25 members of the artist cooperative. On top of that, each month their Featured Exhibit
Gallery is devoted to a single artist or group.
Founded in 1898, Olivet's mission is " To enable all young people,
especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential
as healthy, caring, productive, responsible citizens. " The staff
is proud to see that mission reflected in this show.
" As much as seeing the artwork, we look forward to seeing the
pride on our children's faces when they see their work hanging
in a beautiful gallery alongside pieces created by professional
adult artists, " continues Richard. " Parents and families, beaming
with pride at their children's accomplishments, is a heartwarming
and healing sight. "
The show ends 1/31. Reception: Friday, 1/14, 5:00-8:00pm.
JANUARY FEATURED EXHIBIT
CREATING DURING COVID-19
THE YOUNG ARTISTS OF OLIVET BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
Olivet Boys & Girls Club serves nearly 3,000 children and
youths a year at 8 locations in Reading and Shillington. When
COVID-19 hit, they immediately fought back for their members.
Olivet transformed their historic after-school programming into
a multifaceted service organization - serving daily and weekend
meals, distributing pantry boxes, and setting up online classes,
programming and events.
Art was a big part of this, and the experience is the theme of
this exhibit.
" Olivet is extremely honored to present work created by our
members during such a challenging time, " says Richard Bradbury,
Director of Olivet's Center for the Arts. " You'll see the artwork
of children between the ages of 6 and 18, filtered and informed
by their personal and familial experiences through a global
pandemic. What they endured cannot help but flow from our
kids as they create. "
