Perry County Council of the Arts features several exhibitions throughout the year highlighting the works of one particular artist or theme. The public is invited to attend a special opening reception to mark the start of each exhibition.

CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

February 10, 2017 – May 6, 2017 at Landis House

One Ground Beetle

This exhibition is a collaborative pairing of haiku poems by Melody Davis and prints by Harold Lohner. Melody wrote haiku daily for over a year.  She culled 150 of them for a book project with Harold who created his prints with potato stamps, and reassembled and colorized them in Photoshop.

March 10, 2017 – April 8, 2017 at PCCA Gallery

Move Beyond

Newport artist and PCCA Board member Christopher Lyter presents a series of vibrant, dramatic abstract paintings.  Using palette knife and brush on canvas, Chris employs dynamic color and contrasting values applied with a combination of smooth, refined brushstrokes and areas of thick, textured impasto to produce immersive, three-dimensional works of art. Each painting challenges one to look past the obvious and to open the mind.

UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
