Artists’ Reception

| Free

The Urban Landscape

The Lois & Richard England Gallery at Iona is proud to exhibit “The Urban Landscape” from September 14, 2019 – January 16, 2020. Our Gallery at Iona regularly features artworks by local, vibrant artists age 60+. It is a platform that showcases our mission in action, and inspires creativity, community building, and self-expression in older adults.

The seven artists in this exhibition have a lot to tell…stories, memories, imaginations, and experiences. They show a vision of the city or town that touched them deeply and uniquely. No doubt these artists excel in their craft.

Whether abstract or representational, two-dimensional or free-form, each individual artwork transports us into a place where the scent of air is imagined, colors are experienced, and the vibrancy or stillness of the locale serve to inspire. View flyer here.

Featured Artists:

Jane McElvany Coonce
Linda Button
J.Ford Huffman
Richard Levine
Ann Schaefer
Tom Walsh
Elaine S. Wilson

The exhibition is curated by Joey Mánlapaz, MFA, Professor, Corcoran at George Washington University. Read the curator and artists’ statements here.
