An Art Day in York, PA
This past Saturday Barry and I drove into York to meet a friend for lunch. We arrived early to shop at Central Market and also catch up on new works at Marketview Arts which is, as you may suspect, across from Central Market. The main level of Marketview Arts is the Gallery and Welcome Center for the Pennsylvania Arts Experience, the lower level has studio space for rent as well as a small gallery for the York Art Association. The second floor is auxiliary studio space for York College art students. The third floor was a ballroom in the days when the building belonged to a fraternal brotherhood. There are the initials F.O.E. on a stained glass panel over the door. It might be the Fraternal Order of the Eagle (?) I'll have to look that one up later. Now the ballroom can be rented for events. Currently the space is filled to the brim with an installation by artist-in residence, Wayne White. The exhibit is called FOE (an installation), which will run through May 20, 2014. If you're not familiar with Wayne White, see here for his biography and photos of his work. I only knew him from the documentary about him: Beauty is Embarrassing. I have some photos further below with additional comments on the exhibit.
