Collectors with the Native American Spirit: Art from the Stevens Sollman Collection


Jeanne Stevens-Sollman and Phil Sollman, both prominent artists, have spent many years collecting Native American Art. Their collection includes weavings, drums, pottery, paintings, and more! This exhibition will provide a time to talk about collecting and about the excellent art they have acquired. Native Americans have a long tradition of decorating objects created for use as well as for ceremony in a wide range of styles from abstract to representational and often referencing the natural world

Bill Seay's "Subtractive Dialogues" in the Community Gallery


Subtractive Dialogues - Sculpting is a conversation between myself and the piece of wood with me removing material, exposing the unique forms contained in the wood while the wood speaks back, telling me when to stop, where to leave things as they are. In this dialogue, my part is to create a smooth-flowing transition between the interesting shapes within. Not knowing what I will find below the surface, I start out having only a vague idea of what the final product will be and am constantly entertained by the surprises I encounter along the way.

Artist Statement: Woodworking has been a life passion since being introduced to it in middle school shop class. Prior to 1997 I dabbled in furniture making, absorbing all I could through reading, talking to other artists, and studying existing pieces. In 1997 I immersed myself in the craft full time, working at a local shop, where I learned much of the business of custom woodworking and got the first taste of my true passion, carving and shaping wood.

In 2004 I opened a shop where I began designing and making furniture that was exhibited in craft shows, museums, and galleries throughout Pennsylvania. Over time, the style of furniture became increasingly sculpted, eventually leading to purely sculptural pieces. My most recent body of work includes free-flowing forms that accentuate the swirling grain and shapes provided by nature and sometimes hint of something living within."
