FREE | Outdoor Opening Reception
The Abington Art Center Solo Series gives 9-12 artists annually an opportunity to show a body of work they created in one of Alverthorpe Manor’s historic galleries.
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 she 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.
