20 North exhibit keeping things in the familyWritten by John Dorsey | | email@example.com
“I first saw Abner’s work at the Midwest Museum of American Art in Elkhart, Ind. His work has such a beautiful rhythm and flow to it that I knew he would be a good fit for our gallery. His work has such an excitement and just wonderful use of color,” said gallery artistic director Peggy Grant.
Abner Hershberger, who is a renowned lecturer, has taught painting and printmaking workshops at colleges and universities throughout the United States and Europe.
“Family Imprint” features a number of works created during the past 4 or 5 years.
Sue Yoder Hershberger spent years designing fabric patterns in the fashion industry, most notably for Nike.
She has taught printmaking at the Northwest College of Art and currently resides in New York, where she teaches at Syracuse University.
“It was Abner that suggested that we consider pairing he and Sue up for an exhibit. Even before I had looked at Sue’s work, I agreed knowing that I could trust that Abner knew what he was talking about. Her works are truly beautiful lyrical prints about nature,” Grant said.
Abner Hershberger will give a talk about the history of his work on Oct. 18 at 2 p.m.
He is also planning on conducting student workshops.
“Family Imprint” will run through Nov. 2. The 20 North Gallery is located Downtown at 20 N. St. Clair St.
