Shamokin Gallery To Present Work Of Arts Council Board Member [News - Item, The (PA)]

(News - Item, The (PA) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SHAMOKIN - The Northumberland County Council for the Arts and Humanities Art Gallery will present the work of one of its board members, local artist Mary Ann Labosky Levins. Her exhibit, "A Retrospective of My Favorite Subjects," will open with a public reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Levins, a Shamokin native and an Our Lady of Lourdes alumnus, began painting in her early 60s after some encouragement from a friend. After a year of formal study at Welch Art Studios in Shamokin, she took first place and best in show for her one-person show in acrylic at the Bloomsburg Fair Art Show in 2006. She is continuing her studies with local artist and instructor Chet Davis.

She also serves on the board of directors of the Northumberland County Council for the Arts Gallery as treasurer, is a founding member of the Anthracite Heritage Festival of the Arts, and will be volunteering on the upcoming Shamokin Park Bench projects.

Levins strives to bring a fresh look to her subjects, whether its flowers, fruit, landscapes or people, and likes to try to capture the interplay of light and shadows on glass and cut crystal. "I loved painting these subjects and I hope people who come to the gallery will enjoy seeing them," she said.

The exhibit will run until Sept. 15 and can be viewed from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m Monday through Friday.

In addition to fine art, visitors to Levins' reception will be treated to music and refreshments. The Lucky Charms, an acoustic trio featuring Paul Riffon on violin, Brett Mowery on guitar and Lisa Welch Knecht on upright bass, will perform lively traditional, Irish and folk music. The trio will be joined by special musical guests, including 12-year-old bluegrass bassist Zane Mowery. Refreshments will be provided by the arts council. This evening of art and music is free and the public is invited.

The gallery is located inside the Arts Center at the former Shamokin High School at 2 E. Arch St. in Shamokin on the lower floor. Visitors should use the lower handicapped entrance and follow signs once inside.
