Reception for artist Eloise Piper set for Sept. 6

A reception for artist Eloise Piper is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, in the Art Gallery at Penn State New Kensington.

The former Pittsburgh resident's exhibit, "Retrospective," runs through Sept. 28. The multimedia show features Piper’s original works, including those that have never been displayed to the public before, as well as digital and video presentations highlighting major themes and series produced over the nearly six decades of her career as artist, author and educator.

Piper has exhibited in solo and group shows across the country and has garnered numerous awards. The Carnegie Museum of Art, Baltimore's Contemporary (also known as the “museum without walls”), Yellow Door Gallery in New York and Los Angeles Art Association previously hosted Piper’s works. The reception and exhibit are free to the public. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. weekends.
