posted on: 1/3/2014
An opening reception for "The Nature of Our Soul," a collection of 14 oil paintings by Penny Santy, will take place on Friday, Jan. 24 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Wilson Art Gallery of the Noreen Reale Falcone Library at Le Moyne College. The exhibit will be on display at the gallery from Friday, Jan. 24 to Friday, Feb. 21 during regular library business hours. The reception and exhibit are free of charge.
Santy’s works are representational pieces that break from that, at times, to abstraction. Her paintings embrace the human experience that is effected by or reflected in our natural surroundings. She has been inspired by the works of Gustav Klimpt, the impressionists, and the tonalists for the spiritual connection captured in their work, and by abstract expressionists like Philip Guston, Joan Mitchell and Willem de Kooning for the energy, paint textures and movement expressed in their works.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in fine art from Syracuse University. Her work has been exhibited in the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse and received a first place award through the “On My Own Time” art show. She won a second place award in the Rome, N.Y. Regional Fine Arts Exhibition, and third place award in the Central Adirondack Art Show. Since 1997, she has worked as a graphic designer in the Office of Communications at Le Moyne College.
