Upcoming juried shows to spotlight diverse media

 Chester County Art Association announces fall lineup of exhibits

“Octoraro Lake,” an oil on canvas by Tracy Colletto Adams, is one of the paintings that will be featured in an upcoming show at the Chester County Art Association.

Media ranging from ceramics to photography will be on display at the Chester County Art Association (CCAA) in West Chester.

The association just announced its fall lineup, which will include its members’ juried show, which runs from Sept. 7 through Oct. 5 in the Allinson Galleries in West Chester as well as a show by Tracy Colletto Adams entitled “Journeys.”

A free, public opening will be held Thursday, Sept. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. The members’ exhibit showcases works in all media, including sculpture and painting; the juror for the show is Robert Cozzolino from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Colletto Adams’ show will feature a range of her work in oils along with a selection of work by photographer Steven Adams.  Colletto Adams says her  aerial views are designed to reveal “hauntingly beautiful organic forms of nature working together with the lines and patterns of human civilization.” Colletto Adams has a BFA in communication arts from East Carolina University School of Art.

Continuing  in October at CCAA’s Exton Square Studio, artist Emmy Krick will present “Come into my Garden,” an array of floral paintings with an abstract quality brought forward by vivid color.

The galleries at CCAA,  located at 100 N. Bradford Ave., West Chester, are open 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; admission is free. The Exton Square Studio is located on the first floor of the Exton Square Mall near Boscov’s. Hours are Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 The Chester County Art Association is a non-profit, cultural organization that promotes participation in the arts through quality instruction, exhibitions and community outreach. CCAA believes that art does make a difference and has enhanced the community by involving people of all ages and aspirations in the arts since 1931.
