KINGSTON – Dallas artist and muralist Leigh Pawling will be featured in the The Rusty Flack Art Gallery at Wyoming Seminary’s inaugural professional exhibit, running Sept. 1 to 30.
The solo exhibit, titled “Layers of Light: An Exhibit by Leigh Pawling,” will be on display in the gallery, located in Sem’s Kirby Center for Creative Arts, 260 N. Sprague Ave.
The public is invited to meet the artist and view her exhibit during a reception 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9. The exhibit also will be open to the public 1 to 3 p.m. Sept. 3, 10, 17 and 24 or by appointment.
Pawling has been a painter, muralist and teacher for nearly 25 years and her exuberant, large-scale murals in Wilkes-Barre, Kingston, Tunkhannock, Pittston and other areas are well-known. She also has exhibited widely in area galleries in both solo and group shows. A Pennsylvania Rostered Artist, she is a painting instructor for the award-winning prestigious Arts Alive program at Marywood University, held every year in July.
This exhibit will feature 15 to 20 vibrantly-colored acrylic and mixed-media works of various sizes, created since 2008. One highlight of the show will be Pawling’s Life Series, a collection of four large works that shows the evolution of a human being from a single entity in childhood, to “couplehood” and parenthood, and finally at the end of life, alone once again. Other works will depict the human figure, common everyday objects and area landscapes.
