HELENA DOMENIC

Helena Domenic was born in Vicenza, Italy where she developed a love of art at a very early age, touring the Sistine Chapel at the age of eighteen months.  Helena received her BFA in Fine Art from Kutztown University and her MA in Art Education from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  She currently teaches Art History, African Art, Drawing, and Painting at Cheyney University of Pennsylvania.  Helena completed her MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont.  Helena’s work at Goddard was focused upon the nexuses between visual and performing arts, ritual and theater, and serving one’s community through the arts, as well as a concentration in African Studies.  Helena’s artwork has appeared in publications such as Faerie magazine, Green Egg, Sage Woman, and other publications.  In addition to teaching at Cheyney, Helena has taught at The University of the Arts, and a variety of conferences and festivals around the country. Helena has organized art exhibits for the Cheyney University campus and her work has appeared in art galleries around the world.  Helena currently lives in Exton with her husband Sean and three cats: Bella, Piper, and Cassandra.

BEV GELFAND

Art should make its own statement.  That said, I can’t claim that the majority of my work has anything to say or exists for any other purpose than to make someone smile, or maybe get a bit overheated.  But why pin-ups?  I’ve always loved pin-ups.  Classic works (Gil Elvgren’s, especially) always bring me to a place where things are simpler, where the world isn’t as dark and scary, and a time when a pin-up wasn’t (really) intended to be anything other than a cutie in a silly situation with a little too much skin exposed.  If I really had to assign a purpose to my work I’d have to say that for the most part, I just want to bring a little bit of that time and place back through my pin-ups (guys or gals).  Everyone needs a little bit of happy in this world.  Or fun. Or cute. Flirty. Sassy. Sexy. Naughty….

KATIE LENNON

Katie Lennon is an eclectic artist with a unique gift for illuminating both the visible world of nature and the invisible plane of the Otherworld.  After studying dance at Marymount Manhattan College, Katie graduated magna cum laude from Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts with a BA in Fine Art.  In recent years her art has focused on themes prevalent in Celtic mythology. Through her visual and performance art pieces she transports the viewer to realms beyond our normal perception.  Her distinctive visual art takes many forms.  She is an accomplished painter who has been selling her work to collectors around the world.  Her striking color palette gravitates towards the aesthetics of nighttime, and the somber hues of twilight.  As a sculptor she uses contemporary experimental techniques to animate creatures of delicate grace.  Through the ancient art of block printing she creates art that has been called “Graphically tight, original and fresh yet vintage at the same time.”

Currently Katie is working as an apprentice for two internationally recognized artists.  The first apprenticeship is with award winning artist Iain McCaig.  Iain is one of the motion picture industry’s leading conceptual designers. His exceptional command of human anatomy, character, emotional expression and visual narrative make him on of the most sought after artists working in the entertainment industry today.  He has worked for Lucasfilm as one of the principal designers on Star Wars Episode One – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars Episode Two – Attack of the Clones, and: Star Wars Episode Three – Revenge of the Sith.  The other apprenticeship is with Eric Bornstein; one of the United States’ leading mask makers.  He studied mask making with Agung Suardana in Bali, and Donato Sartori in Italy, and has developed his own unique approach to mask-making and mask performance. He holds a MFA from Harvard University, and is the founder of Behind The Mask Theatre.

Join us for this magical, mystical and Oh!…so SEXY! OPENING RECEPTION on 4th Friday of November (November 26th) from 7 – 9pm…  I see faerie dust in the mix here!  Hosted by our fabulous curatorial diva and goddess Veronica Bound, who’ll be serving up sweet treats and beverage and answering your silly questions.
