ARTISTS

Chris Cox, Painting & Sculpture

Chris Cox is an abstract artist, represented by Bluestone Fine Art Gallery in Old City Philadelphia. She finds inspiration in old, stone walls and has created many paintings based on what she sees in them. While traveling through Egypt, she was taken with the imagery that she saw on the walls of locks as we traveled on the Nile. The haunting figures that the river’s water had stained on to the walls were mysterious, yet had a certain spirituality and peacefulness. Her current body of paintings tell a story of peacefulness, spirituality, community, togetherness and individuality.

Adele Kubel, Painting

Adele Kubel grew up in Cheltenham and has lived in the Abington area her whole life. She did both my undergraduate and graduate work at Tyler School of Art. Presently, she teaches art in the city of Philadelphia. I have been an art teacher for almost 33 years.

“My paintings are about my love for luscious, rich surfaces and arrangements. My paintings are about the physical and the spiritual. My paintings are compulsive and obsessive”

– Adele Kubel

Jenna Lucente, Painting

Jenna Lucente was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Staten Island. She received her Bachelor of Fine Art from Syracuse University and her Master of Fine Art from CUNY Queens College, both with a concentration in painting. Lucente’s work combines stylized imagery with a muted and monotone color palette. Her current series of drawings on mylar and oil paintings are centered around a flooded landscape populated by flora, fauna and a recurring figure of an adolescent girl. These repeated images help form Lucente’s visual language and the series elicits feelings of vulnerability, protection and fragility.

Abington Art Center is proud to host the American Color Print Society’s Members Spring Exhibition!

American Color Print Society was founded in 1939 in Philadelphia, PA. At that time, the typical print was a black and white etching, with very little chance of a color print passing a jury. In 1940, 85 artist members staged the first National Color Print Exhibition at the Philadelphia Print Club, now The Print Center. This opened printmaking to color and allowed for the experimentation that is part of our tradition today. 

Located on an historic 27-acre campus in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, Abington Art Center presents exhibitions, educational programs and events designed to make the visual arts engaging and approachable. AAC is housed in Alverthorpe Manor, home of respected rare book and print collector Lessing J. Rosenwald and his wife Edith, who donated this elegant estate to the Township of Abington as a cultural and recreational gathering place for the community. 

JUROR : Jennifer Manzella Printmaker, Teacher | Arcadia University 

Jennifer Manzella has received an MFA in printmaking at The University of Georgia and has been an art educator for over 10 years. Jennifer has been in numerous juried exhibitions, including two with the International Print Center in New York City. She has been involved in several public art projects in New York City and Philadelphia, has been a recipient of the Andy Warhol Foundation Grant, and has done several artist residencies.
