Zammesei : To Be Together
An exhibition partnership with the Center for Creative Exploration and Garden Spot Village Community
Togetherness during a global pandemic is in short supply. The concept of Zammesei (“To be together” in Pennsylvania Dutch) lies at the heart of this exhibition and stems from the rich traditions of this region. All featured artworks were created by students and faculty of the Center for Creative Exploration at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design.
In early 2021, residents of Garden Spot Village community were invited to participate in a series of the Center’s online workshops focusing on watercolor, collage, Notan design, poetry, and automatic drawing. Across a variety of media, this exhibit unites the residents of Garden Spot Village and the PCA&D community in creativity during a time of uncertainty and isolation. Zammesei is a celebration of art’s intrinsic ability to bring people together.
Featured artists include Hannah Bost, Lindsey Cammauf, Matt Chapman, Erin Dorney, Donna Felton, Noelle Fortna, Eva Gallagher, Bertha Hawk, Evelyn Hershey, Le Hinton, Angie Hohenadel, Doreen Jacoby, Michael Kelchner, Lia Lindemuth, Nichole Madonna, Connie McKane, Donna Milton, Joann Monk, Barbara Strasko.
