Between Every Two Pines

Between Every Two Pines

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - February 23, 2022

The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is proud to announce an opening reception for “Between Every Two Pines” an exhibit of works by Kathy Pilling-Whitney which will be held on Saturday, March 5th from 2-4PM. Kathy will give an artist’s talk at 3PM to explain her techniques and inspirations. Admission to the gallery is free, and light refreshments will be served at the reception, including wine from Shutter Homestead.

The drawings and paintings in this exhibit are inspired by a quote from John Muir, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” The exhibit will include a variety of works, including watercolor and ink designs of leaves and landscapes, 7 symbols designs, “exploded” jewelry designs, house portraits, colorful still life arrangements, and acrylic landscapes inspired by local beauty. Kathy’s work is by turns energetic and restful, saturated in color and muted, warm and cool. This exhibit is suitable for all ages.

Kathy Pilling-Whitney is currently retired and lives outside of Tioga with her husband and rescue dog. She has frequently exhibited work in the Gmeiner’s regional juried exhibitions. Kathy has also had work exhibited at the Arnot Art Museum, Steuben Trust, Keuka Lake Art Association, and the George Waters Gallery at Elmira College. Over the years, she has been involved in many aspects of art curriculum and professional development. She taught art from kindergarten through twelfth grade at Hornell City School District, Greenwood Central School District, Corning-Painted Post School District, and Elmira City School District. Former students of Kathy’s are encouraged to come out and see her at the reception.

Kathy Pilling-Whitney will be offering two free classes, one for adults and one for children, in conjunction with her exhibit. The adults class will be on acrylic landscapes on a colored ground and will be held on Saturday, March 19th from 2-4PM. The children’s class (ages 10-16) will be on 7 symbols and will be held on Saturday, March 26th from 2-4PM. Both classes will be held in the Studio at the Gmeiner, are limited to 10 participants, and masks are required. Adults will need to purchase their own materials, but materials will be provided for the children’s class. For more information or to register for the classes, please contact the Gmeiner at (570) 724-1917 or director@gmeinerartculturalcenter.org.

“Between Every Two Pines” will be on display in both the Atrium and Main Galleries of the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center from Saturday, March 5 through Saturday, March 26. The Gmeiner is currently open from 12-6PM Mondays through Saturdays and is located at 134 Main Street in Wellsboro behind the Green Free Library.
