Long-time supporter of the arts and music, Barb enjoys sharing her talents to benefit others. She designed a creative art program that she uses for senior adults in a tri-county South Central Pennsylvania area. From this, she is the recipient of Jump Street's Spectrum Award for Excellence in the Arts, which recognized her work with seniors and Alzheimer's disease and dementia. She also authored the manual entitles Simple Lines Make a Difference to share her knowledge and experience engaging seniors through meaningful, creative art activities.
Darlene ObergWatercolo/Alcohol Inks
Oberg’s work is her response to nature, mostly in her garden and other places of beauty and enlightenment. Upon her delightful discovery of the medium Yupo (a synthetic, plastic coated paper), most of her current works are watercolor executed on Yupo paper. More recently, she discovered alcohol inks and has been experimenting with their unique qualities. Every day is a new adventure in both the garden and the studio. This sense of creative adventure brings great joy to her life, and she can think of no better mission than to share it with others.
York County native Steve Wetzel grew up in the countryside near the York/Lancaster border. Now living in the Harrisburg area, he remains close to the Susquehanna River, which continues to be a popular subject in many of his landscape paintings.
He studied painting, including plein air landscape, at the Art Association of Harrisburg before becoming a landscape teacher. He’s had numerous solo exhibits and has been included in many group and invitational shows, such as the Governor’s Mansion in Harrisburg, the Philadelphia Sketch Club, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and the “Art of the State” held at the Pennsylvania State Museum. In addition, he was a member of the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists. His cartoons have been published in the Harrisburg Patriot-News, the Altoona Mirror, the Allentown Morning Call, and the Philadelphia Daily News. Several of his cartoons are now in the permanent art collection of the Pennsylvania State Museum.
