“As a self-taught artist I am continually evolving with my work. I am persistently working to develop my talent, absorbing as much inspiration and familiarity I can from the world around me. I create because I feel moved to create. There is beauty in everything…from the eyes of a child to the rust of a fender. Each time I represent that on canvas I feed my soul."

The exhibition featured 37 works from 21 artists and spotlights a variety of pieces, including photography, watercolor, acrylic, oil, metal, clay, recycled glass, pencil and mixed-media. Seven works received awards, and four received honorable mentions.
Arthur Lambert, a former art teacher and local businessman, was juror. Lambert said he could not say he was surprised to see so many outstanding works because he is aware of how much artistic talent the area possesses.
“I was pleasantly presented with a spectrum of different mediums to review,” he said. “I am assured that the fine arts are still vibrant and alive here.”
“Momento Mori,” by Lori Perrine-Miglioretti of Johnstown, received an AmeriServ Financial Award and her “Dogwood and Daisies” garnered the Dr. and Mrs. Joel Borkow Award.
“I found this work exquisite,” Lambert said of “Momento Mori.” “The brushwork was intricate, the color treatment showed a beautiful transition within each object and the balance of shape and dimension was attended to with skill.”
