Pam Wenger's award-winning and SOLD piece from PWS Aqueous 2020
A members-only exhibit.
We have all been cooped up in our “bubbles” for the last year unable to live as we are accustomed. It has given us all time to think about the life we had, and time to consider how we want to move forward from this experience. What changes will you make? Will you live a new life with more direction, purpose, or intention? Will you try to get back to “normal”?
the Exhibition Committee has decided to push out Living Out Loud Exhibit, and move it out to November. We considered simply cancelling it. But several members expressed not having enough time to complete new work for Waterworks, Living Life Out Loud and the PWS Celebrates 75+1 Years! exhibit in Greensburg. We want to give our members as much exposure as possible, especially with our ability to go online and reach much larger audiences. Our Exhibition Committee listened to our members and had much discussion about how best to proceed. Since we did not have to reschedule a gallery, the committee decided to extend the registration and take the exhibit into the last quarter of the year. Additionally, for those who do not get in to Aqueous, they can have a second chance to exhibit their work in Living Life Out Loud. The registration period has been extended through October 15.
