Land and water captured in pastel artworks are beautiful and also help conserve more natural landscapes Local artist Jennifer Shuey exhibits body of work at Zola Kitchen & Wine Bar in March and April Artist’s Reception on April 19, 5 – 7 pm The community is invited to enjoy an early glimpse of spring through the art of local pastel artist, Jennifer Shuey. Rich colors and warm sunlight weave through an exhibit of 26 pieces of Shuey’s work featured by the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania in the months of March and April at Zola Kitchen & Wine Bar. “An artist’s reception will be held on Wednesday, April 19 from 5 – 7 pm,” according to Karen Caswell Sapia, manager of Zola Kitchen & Wine Bar. “Jennifer will be on hand to meet guests and discuss her work, and Zola will provide some small bites.” In addition to exhibiting her art work, Jennifer enjoys painting to support local conservation and community causes that she cares about deeply. “In January, I painted Slab Cabin Run at its confluence with Thompson Run in Millbrook Marsh to raise money and awareness for ClearWater Conservancy’s Slab Cabin Run conservation initiative,” noted Jennifer. “And just this weekend, I painted a piece for the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited, featuring a restoration project that they did on the stream between Bellefonte and Milesburg and several of the veterans from TU’s Veterans Service Program fishing there.” A portion of every sale from this exhibition will be donated by the artist to ClearWater Conservancy’s Slab Cabin Run conservation initiative to protect our source water forever.
