In times of anxiety and uncertainty about the future, it is essential to redirect our attention to the beauty, talent, and creativity found in the local community and its environment. While some of our travel plans may be disrupted, we are fortunate enough to have access to the natural splendor of neighboring woodlands and fields. Lebanon Picture Frame & Fine Art Gallery (LPF) is therefore pleased to offer just such an experience of appreciation and celebration. Angela Lapioli, Hershey area abstract painter, will be showing her own unique expression of nature rendered in oil and cold wax. LPF will be holding an artist’s reception on Friday, April 1, 2022 from 5pm to 8pm. The exhibition will remain on view until Saturday, May 28, 2022.
Angela Lapioli immediately embarked upon her career as an illustrator, graphic designer and art director after graduating with a BFA in Graphic Design from Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia. Her later work as a fine art painter, however, began only after Lapioli took an art class six years ago. Based outside of Hershey, PA, the artist utilizes her preferred medium of acrylics, along with oil and cold wax, to capture and interpret the local natural environment. Lapioli’s abstract interpretation of nature is often expressed in a dreamlike trance, characterized with muted, subtle layers of color and interspersed with strong, graphic lines. “I find inspiration from focused observations in our local natural environment that usually manifests itself in abstraction, and some more figurative works,” remarked the artist.
Some of Lapioli’s notable recent exhibitions have been “Art in the Atrium”, WITF Harrisburg, PA in 2018, “Images 2019 Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts” at State College, PA, GoggleWorks, Schmidt Gallery, 2020 New Teachers Exhibition and Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, “Images 2021” Juried Exhibition at University Park.
