Artist of the Month
February 26 - March 31, 2014
Public Reception: Saturday, March 8, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Mark’s paintings will be shown in the Fireside Room from February 26 through March 31. An opening reception, with light hors d’oeuvres and wine, will be held on Saturday, March 8, from 2:00–4:00 p.m. The reception is open to the public, and those interested in Mark’s work are invited to meet the artist.
Mark began his art studies at the University of Notre Dame, where he had a minor concentration in painting. After graduating from Notre Dame’s Great Books Program, he attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he studied drawing, painting, and sculpting in the day program for about two years. He lives in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where he finds much inspiration in the rural and natural landscape of his surroundings.
Mark works with many themes, from landscape to still life to abstract figurative work. All of his themes will be represented in the show. Prominent among the images in the show are his animal paintings and images of circus performers and musicians. Generally, his paintings seek to express man’s spiritual connection to nature and to bring a heightened awareness of spirituality in the viewer.
