Stu­dio B Fine Art Gallery, 39A East Philadel­phia Av­enue, Boy­er­town, is pleased to an­nounce the award win­ners of the stu­dio’s ex­hibit “Ves­sel.” Awards were ap­pointed by glass artists Karla Trink­ley and Will Dex­ter of Tay­lor Backes Glass Stu­dio, Boy­er­town.

First place was awarded to Al­bert Ciervo for “Zep­pelin.”

Sec­ond place fea­tured a mixed me­dia as­sem­blage: “Ladies Out of Box: He­len, Eleanor, Edith and Sadie” cre­ated by Suzanne Fel­lows.

A ce­ramic sculp­ture by Karen Pal­cho en­ti­tled “Seis Diosas” took third place.

Fourth place was awarded to Daniel Sch­lenker for his mixed me­dia piece en­ti­tled “Bris­tle Bowl.”

Deb­o­rah Ham­burger’s pa­per and wood sculp­ture en­ti­tled “Mur­mu­ra­tion” earned fifth place in the ex­hibit.

The ex­hi­bi­tion of two-di­men­sional and three-di­men­sional fine art sub­mit­ted by more than 40 of the area’s fine artists, opened on Fri­day, Sept. 15, and will run through Oct. 15, 2017.

Artists were en­cour­aged to con­sider all mean­ings of the word “ves­sel” to in­spire their artis­tic re­sponses. An as­sort­ment of art­work fea­tur­ing vases and bowls, ships, flow­ers, hu­man ar­ter­ies and veins were rep­re­sented. The hu­man body as a ves­sel was also fea­tured in a va­ri­ety of re­sponses.

Stu­dio B, lo­cated in the heart of his­toric Boy­er­town, is the home of the Arts and Ac­tiv­i­ties Al­liance, a com­mit­tee of Build­ing a Bet­ter Boy­er­town, a non­profit Main Street pro­gram ded­i­cated to re­vi­tal­iz­ing small towns. Vis­i­tors are al­ways wel­come to view the chang­ing ex­hibits; take lessons in the vis­ual, lit­er­ary, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion arts of­fered by highly-trained lo­cal artists and teach­ers; and sched­ule small events or par­ties in its el­e­gant fa­cil­ity. The stu­dio proudly col­lab­o­rates with the many unique busi­nesses in the Boy­er­town com­mu­nity.
