AOY and Makefield Crossing collaborate on new art show


AOY Art Center announces a special exhibition featuring four esteemed abstract artists at the Makefield Crossing offices located at 790 Township Line Road.

The show, titled “AOY@Makefield Crossing: Abstract Expressions,” marks the premiere of exhibitions AOY has been invited to participate in by Makefield Crossing.

This inaugural exhibition will showcase the works of four distinguished AOY member artists: Chuck Fischer, Susan Gilli, Janis Schimsky and Marc Schimsky. Each artist has carefully selected one artwork for display at the location, with an additional five pieces available for viewing and purchase at (AOYs online gallery) through March 26.

Fischer specializes in Tableaux Reliefs, creating art that transcends the two-dimensional plane with textured and dimensional abstract elements. Gilli’s mastery lies in oil and cold wax, where she invites viewers into a realm of soothing fluidity and harmonious compositions. Janis Schimsky, though new to exploring abstract paintings, infuses her acrylic works with joyous movement and vibrant energy.

Marc Schimsky’s abstract creations draw from personal sensory memories, inviting viewers to bring their own interpretations and histories to his canvases.

The public is invited to experience these artworks in person at the opening reception from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the Conference Room, 790 Township Line Road in Lower Makefield. Following the reception, guests are encouraged to explore the online gallery and delve deeper into the artists’ backgrounds and inspirations at Art purchases can be made online.
