The Wagner College Gallery presents “Lightbrights,” an exhibition of 13 oil and acrylic panels by Kurt Herrmann, from Tuesday, Oct. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 27. The exhibition will open with a gallery reception on Tuesday, Oct. 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. The public is invited, and the exhibition and reception are free.
“The thirteen pieces in this show are very abstract,” says Herrmann, “but their origins are very specific. The base colors always set the tone. For instance, ‘Sylvan Carnival’ has a deep mossy green ground that comes directly from looking at, and living in, the mountains of central Pennsylvania. It locks the time in place — late spring. All the strokes that come after are more individual — referencing the warmth of the season, birds, flowers, sun.”
Kurt Herrmann, who is currently based in rural central Pennsylvania, has exhibited nationally and internationally since graduating from Lock Haven University in 1995. For more information, visit his website or his Facebook page.
