Reception for artist Bill DeBernardi set for Friday

A reception for artist Bill DeBernardi is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, in the Art Gallery at Penn State New Kensington.

The former campus student and instructor's exhibit, "An American Festival #55 (Stale)” runs through Nov. 29. The show features two large, head and torso figures complemented by a collection of smaller paintings of ordinary people going about their daily routines. The show is an expansion of his 2012 exhibit at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Ligonier, Pa.

DeBernardi’s work has been shown in regional and national exhibitions, as well as internationally in China, France and Venezuela. He was chosen to exhibit in the international invitational exhibition “Justice/Peace” in Changchun, China, in 1995. His paintings are in private, corporate and museum collections throughout the United States and in France, Italy and Venezuela.

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.
