For its first exhibition in 2015, the Moose Exchange’s Stairwell Gallery hosts work by Danville native and Bloomsburg resident Ken Conner in the “Solo Themeless Show” – an eclectic mix of work from the last ten years. The show opens on Monday, the 5th of January, and runs through the 14th of February, with a reception on Saturday, the 17th of January, 6-8 p.m.
Born in Danville in 1951, Ken attended the York Academy of Arts in York, Pennsylvania, and worked as a freelance illustrator and in commercial advertising. In 1978, Ken founded the “Spring Thaw” Art Show & Sale in his hometown. This non-competitive community exhibition became a popular annual event that continues to this day. Now retired and living in Bloomsburg with his wife, Sabrina, Ken enjoys working with found objects as well as graphite and acrylic.
Currently located at 24 East Main Street in Bloomsburg, the Stairwell Gallery hosts numerous exhibitions throughout the year, many of them featuring work by artists of all ages and backgrounds from throughout the Central Susquehanna region. For later this winter and into the spring, the Gallery’s organizing committee has three open-call shows planned, on the themes of photography, film & video, and “What Are You Reading?” Look for more information about them in the coming weeks.
