Area Artist's Work on Display
The ArtSpace Gallery in the PoconoArts Cultural Center in Stroudsburg honors the recipient of the 2014 PoconoArts Lifetime Achievement Award, Peter Salmon, ( see painting above) with an exhibit during the month of July.
Entitled, “People I’ve Met and The Places I’ve Been,” the show is a retrospective of Peter’s work throughout his career.
Peter Salmon was born in Vermont and grew up there and in Yonkers NY. Majoring in history & education, he graduated from Harvard after studying at Middlebury College, where he met his wife Linda. This background led him to work for peace and civil rights with Quaker organizations for two years in the early 60’s.
Having also studied his first love, painting the world around him, along the way at the Brooklyn Museum and Boston University, he returned to that world for good in 1962.
Linda & Peter moved to the Poconos 50 years ago and still live in the house they built and in which they raised their three children. Peter has been described as a naturalist and his paintings reflect a typical year in his life, depicting people and wildlife in his surroundings through the seasons. He is the recipient of the Sterling Strauser Award presented at the annual Celebration of the Arts in Delaware Water Gap and his work can be found in collections throughout the area.
Also on display in the gallery is the work of Armando Baez, Pamela Mading and Joan Raushi. Art from the PoconoArts Morris Berman Collection will be on display in the Studio Gallery. An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, July 12, 5-8pm. The show will run through July 26, 2014.
