Kevin Yozviak- Oil Paintings on Canvas
Kevin Yozviak is from Swoyersville Pennsylvania and currently reside in Charleston, South Carolina. For as long as he can remember he always painted and made art. During high school, I studied under Sue Hand, further honing his skills. He likes to mix intense control and minimal control on the canvas; duality, disparity and contrast means a lot to him and he likes seeing the combination of these principals visually represented to procure a reaction from the viewer that will always be different.

Lois Enama Pluskey/ Theme: My Life in Art-Retrospective, Never Stop Learning
This showcase features the development over time of the art styles and mediums that Lois worked in from her college years as an art major at Philadelphia College of Art and Wilkes University to present day.
From a young age I loved to draw, paint and create. I also spent time in the great outdoors influencing my pieces that depict nature. My greatest love is still the artistic process and enjoying the beauty around us. I studied at The Philadelphia College of Art, and Wilkes University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art and a Web Master’s Certificate at Penn State. My professional career is that of a graphic designer. After 40 years working at local venues in the industry and also my own marketing business, I retired after 23 years at Intermetro Industries Corporation as their Senior Digital Content Specialist. My first order of the day was to get back to creating original art. As a life-long learner I am currently studying in the studio of Atelier Joel Carson Jones learning realistic charcoal, pastel chalk drawing, and oil painting. I am also creating experimental pieces in my home studio. Awards, Publications and Exhibits:View
