LEWISBURG (WVDN) – Carnegie Hall’s new art exhibits open Friday, Aug. 5. Carnegie Hall features three rotating galleries, which display the works of regional artists. The upcoming exhibits feature works by artists Shari O’Day in the Old Stone Room, Susanna Robinson in the Lobby Gallery, and Steven Hutchins in the Museum Gallery.
There will be opening receptions at 5 p.m. in conjunction with Lewisburg’s First Fridays after 5. Jazz musicians Bill Hoffman and William Penn will be providing entertainment for the Lobby Gallery.
Old Stone Room, located on the ground floor of Carnegie Hall, will feature O’Day’s works. O’Day lives in Monroe County and experiments with various mediums, but mainly paints with acrylics and oils. She has been juried into Tamarack.
Her Carnegie Hall exhibit is titled “Life in Transition.”
Robinson’s new works will be exhibited in the auditorium Lobby Gallery. Robinson is an artist who has been a fixture and creative force in the Lewisburg area arts scene for over 30 years. The title of her Carnegie Hall show is “Witch-ful Dreaming,” inspired by a book of dreams she is currently creating. The show is comprised of collaged Art Nouveau-inspired portraits and other-worldly realms. It also includes decorative musical instruments, salvaged from the trash and junk rooms of friends and musical cohorts.
Hutchins and the Aristotle Zenobia Sunshine’s The Museum of Natural, Technological and Sociological Wonders will be featured in the Museum Gallery (adjacent to the Hamilton Auditorium). The show includes familiar, classic, humorous, and absolutely, new exhibits curated and created by Hutchins.
The exhibits are free and open to the public, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and run through Oct. 28.
