Cynthia Groya’s new Acrylic Abstractions and Large Mixed Media Oil Paintings of Ancient Greek and Contemporary New York Calligraphic Currents. Groya, who exhibits widely and taught for years in Yardley, devised a method of applying pigment to canvas that does not rely on brushes. Instead, she uses small rectangles of matte board to produce painterly effects. She calls this pulling paint, hence the title of her show.

Celebrate Gifts From Mother Earth, an installation by Philadelphia fiber artist Betty Leacraft.

The installation documents her project that brought together community members to share personal stories about folk remedies, raise awareness of shared cultural connections, and create art. Bringing together her interest in traditional gardening with her artistry in textiles, Betty conducted a series of workshops this past spring with members of the community and young students from The Spring School Of The Arts.
