Hopeful Visions

Cheryl Schlenker, Merle Weismer, Patricia Danzon

February 12 – March 7, 2021
Online Reception – Meet the artists: Saturday, February 13, 4:00pm

“Hopeful Visions” is the theme for MAC’s Gallery Artists’ February Exhibit. Join the artists in expressing varied responses to our being confined at home. Frustration and stress are sometimes paralyzing, but the warmth and security of one’s home can also be a foundation for stretching one’s limits, reaching new levels of creativity and seeing brighter times on the horizon. How will this inspiring new work resonate in you?

I am enchanted by finding the surprising colors that exist in what we see every day and expressing viewpoints and compositions that go beyond simple rendering of subject matter. I enjoy mixing different media to enhance the properties that each one offers to me and to the
viewer

I am a graduate of Moore College of Art and design, Philadelphia, PA. I hold a BFA in Textile Design. My focus was on designing fabrics for home and fashion. A former tapestry weaver for 15 years, I changed my focus to a smaller scale with art to wear neck pieces using unconventional materials. I try to convey my deep reverence for rhythm and repetition in nature. The lyrical sculptural quality is inspired by my love of historical costume and my ongoing study of 17th and 18th c European portraiture at the Philadelphia Museum of Art where I am a docent.

“The camera offers an opportunity to see the world through new and creative lenses. I seek to capture the beauty and essence of any scene … and the possibilities are everywhere. I am particularly drawn to nature, landscapes and cityscapes, realism and abstraction. My style and subjects are eclectic. The common theme is use of light, line, texture, color and mood to show the beauty and wonder in our world.
