Celebrate the LCAA and the last 80 years! Our "Decades" theme will look back at the past with artwork inspired by a decade from the 1930's to the present. The exhibit will be hung by decade so those viewing it can travel through time!
We have a few suggestions to get you started-
- 1930's - A still life with depression glass or a landscape of your Grandparent's farm.
- 1940's - A drawing of Dad in his World War II uniform or a big Band orchestra.
- 1950's - A painting of Mom in her poodle skirt, an old jukebox or a pink Cadillac.
- 1960's - An abstract with bright psychedelic colors or a self-portrait of you in those groovy 60's clothes.
- 1970's - A family vacation at the beach in watercolor, figures disco dancing in pastel or that beautiful garden you had back then.
- 1980's - A collage of photos of your friends with those wild 80's hairdos, or a mixed media piece inspired by early video games.
- 1990's - A sculpture made from parts to your first computer, floppy disks, circuit boards, VCR's, etc.
- 2000 - present - A painting inspired by political or media events, travel, vacations, tech items.
These are just suggestions, look at what was personal and important to you during those times. Old family photos, scrapbooks or mementos are a great source and can help jog your memory and fuel ideas.
Members may exhibit 1-3 pieces, but each must represent a different decade. We will give an award for a piece in each decade (2000-2016 will have only 1 award)
In addition, the Myrtle Tremblay Award for Watercolor will be given to one watercolor in the exhibit. There is an entry fee of $10 per piece and the show will not be divided into pro and non-pro. It's time to take a walk down memory lane and start work on your entries!

In the Steinmetz Gallery
Richard will be featured in the Steinmetz Gallery with paintings and collages, which explore variations on themes derived from nature and experience. Each image evolves from a feeling or concept, which asks to be communicated visually. His visual concerns are the relationships among shape, tone and color and the interaction of those elements.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, he studied at Queens College (BA), the University of New Mexico (MA), the University of California (MFA), and the Pennsylvania State University (Ph.D). His first one per- son exhibit in New York City was in 1976 at the Parsons-Dreyfuss Gallery. Since then he has had over 30 solo exhibits, including galleries and museums in New York, Washington D.C. and other locations. His work has been featured in numerous juried exhibitions including Art of the State, 2005 in Harrisburg and the Chautauqua National Juried Exhibition.
Richard’s work is included in several permanent collections including the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution; The Phillips Collection; and the Italian Permanent Mission to the United Nations. His academic career includes teaching at the Pennsylvania State University, Cumberland College, Mansfield University, Mercyhurst College and his current appointment as a Professor of Art at Albright College in Reading, PA.
