PAROS Gallery

[ D.J. HARVEY AGENCY ] Featuring the art of Susan Hadorn
Showing 4/14/2018 thru 6/2018

Jazz opened my inner world in a unique way expanding a landscape of patterns and shapes I was already familiar with. Some people describe my work as a conversation between worlds.

“Your work looks very childlike in a spooky sort of way, but it also seems like a witness to the emotional traveling of an old soul.”
– Karl Lorenzon, artist

I moved to Wayne County over thirteen years ago having fallen in love with its beauty recognizing also the opportunities here as an artist. I spent a number of years traveling and living abroad. Many of the images you see come out of those experiences. My influences include urban, Native American, mythic and feminine stories. Matisse shocked me with his ingenuity and Chagall with his magic. Inside of me is a storyteller weaving together dreams, memories, thoughts transforming them becoming visible as I draw. It is a fascinating journey.

LESVOS Gallery

[ LOOSE LEAF PAGES ] Featuring the art of Janet Gaglione
Showing 4/14/2018 thru 6/2018

Vibrant colors, striking geometric shapes and soft warm fabrics combine in these original art quilts. Janet Gaglione’s background is in the theatre. She studied costume and lighting design then worked as Stage Manager and Lighting Supervisor for The Joffrey Ballet Company. Traveling with this and other theatre companies gave her the opportunity to hone her photography skills—chasing sunsets and vintage carousels in cities around the world. Janet continues to work on costumes for National Broadway Tours, movie projects and the local dance studio.

Janet’s quilts are both traditional and original in design, constructed of up to 2000 pieces and as many as 80 different hand-picked fabrics. In addition to bed quilts and quilted wall art, she has brought her fabrics and skills to outdoor art projects in Frederick MD and WCAA; including a quilted deer, birdhouse, 6’tall fiberglass key and a 5’ pink ribbon that is now on display at Frederick Memorial Hospital. She crafts artworks that present quilts in unexpected places. Some people think quilts are only “something that grandma used to make”. Janet enjoys creating art that challenges that notion.

THASOS Gallery

[ BLACK & BRASS COFFEE ROASTING CO. ] Featuring the art of John L Robinson
Showing 4/14/2018 thru 6/2018

John L Robinson is a multidisciplinary artist who grew up in Honesdale, and returned to the area five years ago. In addition to his collage and photography, he has written, directed, and produced a short film called The 2nd Judgment, currently in post production. He has also written a roleplaying supplement called Path of the Black Flag that gives gamers options for playing anarchist characters in a fantasy setting. He also produces performance art under the name Rev. Johnny Lemuria.

John’s work in collage explores a playful intersection of surrealism, glamour, pop culture, and mythology. It is informed by his interest in history, forteana, avant garde art movements, post-modernism, & post-modern religious movements, such as the Church of the SubGenius, the Moorish Orthodox Church, and the Cult of Discordia. His ambition is to produce enough art to synthesize an entirely not cultural identity. More of his work may be found on his website.
