RADNOR, Pa. (Feb. 17, 2010) — Cabrini College hosts "Drive By," an exhibition of 12 mixed media works by Lorraine Glessner, assistant professor of fibers at Tyler School of Art, March 8-31, 2010.
A Philadelphia-area artist, Glessner is former Fibers Department Head at Peters Valley Craft Center in Layton, N.J.
The exhibit includes a mix of fiber and encaustic (hot wax) paintings. In the encaustic method, the artist adds colors to heated beeswax, which is then fused with hot irons, affixing the colors.
A reception with the artist is scheduled for Thursday, March 11, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., with Glessner speaking at 5 p.m. The exhibit and reception are in the Grace and Joseph Gorevin Fine Arts Gallery in Cabrini's Holy Spirit Library (610 King of Prussia Road, Radnor).
The gallery's hours are Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. - 10 p.m.; Friday, 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 1-10 p.m.
