The public is invited from near and far to walk through the rooms and hallways of this beautiful example of Organic Architecture while also viewing the art of the region organized and curated by juried artists Samila Sosic and Stephanie Distler also members of The Wilds Cooperative of PA.
PA Wilds Art Invitational at Lynn Hall is scheduled October 2nd through the 30th with a reception and ‘artisan market’ to be held October 8th, 12pm to 6pm. The market is also made up of juried members of the Cooperative selling their wares including fine art, pottery, photography, woodwork, prints, fiber art, hand crafted soap, etc.
“With so many talented artists within The Wilds Cooperative of PA, it was a hard decision to make a choice for this exhibition. These invitational artists are only a handful of the talent located in The PA Wilds. Each artist utilizes and represents their surroundings in a variety of ways through their medium and high-quality artwork. I cannot wait to see all of the work displayed in this beautiful venue and at such a colorful time of year.” stated Samila Sosic curator and organizer.
“A historic restoration is much more than just restoring a building. It is about restoring and preserving unique physical spaces for future generations so they can understand and appreciate the design and use of the space. However, it is also about researching and preserving the written and pictoral history of the the people who designed, built, lived in and utilized the space. Without the human history the structure is just a shell. Without restoration we loose the built history of our past and thus a physical tie to that past.” explains Gary Devore, current owner.
