February 20, 2015 – Abstract artist Jeremy Petrachonis will display a variety of art works, including pastels, charcoal and oil paintings, and sculptures during a free, public exhibition titled, “Abstraction,” from March 9 through April 17 in the Widmann Gallery at King’s College. 

“With every piece, I try to push the boundaries between what people would expect from me,” said Petrachonis. “As an abstract artist, you’re creating illusions. Some will see what you set out to do, while others have their own opinions.”

Petrachonis will discuss his artwork during a Meet-the-Artists reception from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, March 20, in the Widmann Gallery, Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets.

Petrachonis is currently a senior majoring in drawing and painting at Penn State University. He has exhibited his artwork at Dragonfly Café in Hazelton, Art Youth Expo at the Hazleton Art League, Arts and Music Fest in Freeland, and the Patterson Gallery, Borland Gallery, Woskob, Gallery in State College. 

Gallery hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, as arranged. The Gallery is closed on national holidays.
