PROCESSING… (Artist: Donna Werling)
August 20 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
[from the artist’s statement]
“Processing” represents my attempt to use intuitive expressionism to process the past few years of my life: COVID, war, political divisiveness, inequities, mass shootings, extinction of species due to human greed, and the lack of basic kindness are fed to us by the media constantly.
By creating these pieces my mind dismantles each and puts it through a process which reassembles, intuitively, my world expressing my opinion. The resulting pieces insist that my opinions be heard.
Donna Werling is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, who has lived in Franklin County for the past 16 years. After many years of part-time study while working full-time and raising a family, she received a BA in Fine and Studio Arts and a Minor in Women’s Studies from Wilson College in 2021. Her art reflects her experiences as a working wife and mother attempting to further her education and to overcome the challenges for women in society.
“PROCESSING…” will be on display as the Foundry Art Market’s “Spotlight Gallery” from July 29 – August 28. Foundry Art Market is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
