May Atrium Exhibit at the Gallery Shop

May Atrium Exhibit at the Gallery Shop

Mary Beth Wiseman Mary Beth Wiseman attributes her artistic inspiration to the beauty she finds in nature. She haunts the trails along Spring Creek near Bellefonte, capturing her observations with her camera. Once home, she translates the photos into portraits by hand carving her subjects into rough wooden planks, using a variety of chisels, gouges, and planes. The bas-relief carvings are then painted with acrylics. This technique produces a stunning dimensional effect in the final piece. Mary Beth hopes that her photos and carvings will foster a greater appreciation and awareness of the amazing creatures and environment that we all share. Steve Strouse Steve will display his Shaker style boxes made from locally salvaged hardwoods. Over the past few years he has expanded his craftsmanship into other functional items, such as utensils, live edge clocks and small tables. A new item that will be featured in the atrium show is a small necklace pendant. They are made utilizing elm salvaged from the University Park campus, and have a "Tree of Life" image laser engraved on them. "My desire is to make very functional pieces, which are also a display of the beautiful hardwoods found here in Central Pennsylvania."
