New Kensington

July and August art exhibit features Don Wonderling; reception July 8

Don Wonderling, a veteran of one-man shows throughout western Pennsylvania, exhibits his paintings in the Art Gallery at Penn State New Kensington during July and August. Wonderling, who holds a doctorate in education from the University of Pittsburgh, favors impressionistic and expressionistic styles of painting and his favorite motifs are woodlands and farmlands in the region. He uses color and value contrasts to convey the emotional impact that he strives to get in his paintings. The show opens July 5, and the artist's reception is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 8. The exhibit and reception are free to the public. The gallery is open weekdays, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends, noon to 5 p.m. For more about the art gallery, visit online.
