Pennsylvania based artist and arts instructor Daniel Green will be bringing a collection of his paintings, linoleum cut prints and drawings to Mulberry Art Studios for his “Questions, No Answers…” exhibit this winter. The exhibit opens with a First Friday Reception from 5pm until 9pm on January 4th and will be up throughout the month of January.
The pieces of “Questions, No Answers…” centralizes around the idea that life contains no answers. “I used to think that I would eventually find answers to the deep questions that I had” explains Green. “As I continue to develop my craft, I am realizing that a question drives the human spirit to create, work and inspire. In order to solve a problem, we only need to ask how to solve it. A question re-focuses and drives us to succeed.”
Green’s work is not about clarity. Often an image may seem to clearly represent something. Upon closer inspection, numerous themes can be seen in his work. “I create with the intention that the viewer may ask their own questions about my images. These questions are the essence of my art. The questions are not made in expectation of answer, but will hopefully usher in wonder and interest.”
Daniel Green is a Pennsylvania based visual artist and arts educator. He specializes in printmaking and drawing. Daniel also paints and works in collage. Daniel is a graduate of Kutztown University, claiming a Bachelor's degree in Art Education. Daniel currently works as a substitute teacher before he finds a full-time career as an art teacher. His future plans include visiting the artist Cezar Chavez in Oaxaca, Mexico, taking classes with Myron Barnstone, and attending Tom Huck's woodcut bootcamp.
Megan Henrich: Remnants of Dreams
Remnants of Dreams, a collection of over forty new mixed media pieces and abstract paintings from artist Megan Henrich, will be debuting at Mulberry Art Studios this January. A First Friday Opening Reception will be held from 5pm until 9pm on January 4th and the exhibit will be available throughout the month of January. Mulberry Art Studios holds regular gallery hours on weekdays from 10am until 4pm, with evenings and weekends available upon request.
Megan Henrich finds dreams to be a rich source of creativity and, as the title suggests, dreams were the inspiration for the work of Remnants of Dreams. “Thoughts and ideas flood my mind, even in sleep,” begins Megan. “The only way to quiet my mind is to bring them forth into my art. Anything can spark my creativity. Whether it be a memory, a fragment of my imagination, a song, a glimpse of the past or future, or more often than not, remnants of a dream.
Megan Henrich is a self-taught, mixed media and abstract artist. She is 26 years old and currently resides in her hometown of Lancaster, Pa. Megan has been creating art in various forms throughout her life, but it was only in 2010 that she started creating art on a fulltime basis. "I have finally found my passion, my purpose in life. Art gives my life meaning, hope, and keeps me sane. The fact that my art can also bring happiness to others, makes it that much more fulfilling. This is what I am meant to do."
