Pennswood Art Gallery Hosts Opening Reception for Lucy Graves-McVicker on Sunday, January 21
On Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, an exhibit of paintings by Lucy Graves-McVicker will open at The Pennswood Art Gallery, located in Pennswood Village, a senior living community at 1382 Newtown-Langhorne Road, Newtown, PA. The opening starts with an illustrated presentation by the artist from 2:00 to 3:00 in Penn Hall followed by a wine and cheese reception from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
Graves-McVicker’s work combines abstraction with representation, displaying experimentation with various media, but always, attempts to capture the essence of the moods of nature. By experimenting with various media, such as watercolor, collaged layers of rice paper, acrylic, pastel, graphite, encaustic and/or any other material or methods, she encourages the viewer to mentally join her in the creative process. But, Graves-McVicker says that no matter what the medium, her subject matter is always the same – the nature around her – the woods, scenes along the towpath, memories of her childhood farmland.
A fine arts graduate of Principia College who also studied at Parsons School of Design, The Brodsky Center at Rutgers University and the Printmaking Council in New Jersey, Graves-McVicker has shown in numerous venues, and won many awards including a Gold Medal from the Audubon National juried show in New York City and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Purchase Award.

Lewis, Tremain Smith, William B. Hogan and Peter B.
