Possible Realities Two will help bring a new “people’s choice” installation in 2016 to the Karl Stirner Arts Trail (KSAT) in Easton.
The public is invited to view and vote on proposals of new works, featuring over 25 local and regional artists, on display beginning Saturday, July 11 in the Grossman Gallery of the Williams Visual Arts Building at Lafayette College, 243 North Main St. A reception will be held 4-6 p.m. Sunday, July 12. There is no charge for admission.
Possible Realities Two is the result of a call for environmentally focused entries last fall. That’s the “possible” part. The one proposal that receives the most votes from the public will become a “reality” with the winning artist receiving a $4,000 stipend to produce and install their work on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail. A ballot vote by gallery visitors will determine the chosen work.
The exhibition runs through August 15. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m.–4:30 p.m., and Saturday 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
Participating artists include: Virginia Abbott, Khalil Allaik, ASB Shell Shock Team, Brandon Ballengée, Rich Cook, Thom Cooney Crawford, Vicki DaSilva, Paul Deery, James Harmon, Winifred Helton Harmon, Doug Ihlenfeld, Ken Jones Jr., Tom McGlynn, Martha Posner, Ben Pranger, Patrick Schmidt, Beth Seetch, Jonas Stirner, Karla Stingerstein, Patrick Strzelec, Justin Tyler Tate, Scott Voelker, Liz Wheeler and Kim Christman.
An asset to the City of Easton, the Karl Stirner Arts Trail is a scenic 2.4-mile path running along the Bushkill Creek from the old Simon Silk Mill on 13th Street to Lafayette’s Williams Arts Campus on North Third Street. Check out the KSAT map.
The Richard A. and Rissa W. Grossman Gallery showcases exhibitions and related activities that support the educational mission of Lafayette College, advance the awareness of contemporary art and serve as a community resource.
