First Friday "Peaceful Escapes" with Judy Markel

“Peaceful Escapes”: art by Judy Markel, discounted yoga-inspired apparel, beer samples

Join us in welcoming Judy Markel, our featured artist for September in the gallery at SMALL STAR Art House … and get peaceful.

In Judy’s words: “Creating art with a feeling of tranquility and reflection is my ultimate goal. For the past 15 years, my paintings have been centered around the simple joys of nature. My beachscapes and landscapes are soothing respites for the soul. The viewer becomes absorbed in the scene, hears the sounds of nature, and enjoys a moment of solitude. I create the same calming feeling, on a larger scale, with murals and faux finishes. Entire rooms and building facades transform with colors, textures and scenes. We’re always looking for peaceful escapes, and that’s what inspires me to create art that exudes a calming feeling.”

Judy majored in Art Education at Kutztown University and opened Visual Expressions, a fine art and design service, in 1984. Her specialties include unique faux finishes, murals, fine art, and decorative home accessories, including hand-painted wall mirrors, wine glasses, and furniture. Her largest mural to date is one on the Gemmill Building, located behind the former Zarfos Furniture Store in Red Lion. Her work has won awards at the Riverwalk Art Festival, Colony Papers Show, and Lititz Outdoor Art Show.

Meet Judy, discuss her art, shop the rest of the gallery (including 50% off tees and sweatshirts with yoga-inspired designs), and relax in our lounge with a beer sample or two.

You can also see the family drama “Captain Fantastic,” starring Viggo Mortensen and Frank Langella. Showtimes are 3:00, 5:30 & 7:30; tickets are $10 (www.smallstaryork.com).
