Mercyhurst to host the NPAA photography exhibit


Sam Peterson, Staff writer

Mercyhurst University is showcasing the photography artwork of the Northwest Pennsylvania Artists Association (NPAA). It will be on display from Sept. 24 to Oct. 27 at the Cummings Art Gallery, which is located in the Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center.

NPAA is a nonprofit organization that helps to protect the interests of artists, define visual fine arts in the area and provide scholarships to prospective young artists.

Several Mercyhurst staff are members of this association.

Gary Cardot, a Mercyhurst Art professor, curated the exhibition. It employs a wide range of subject matter and techniques utilized. The artists will be in attendance for a reception on Sept. 27 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This will give students the chance to speak with artists directly.

The artists include Carol Posch Comstock, Abigail Adams Greenway, Dorothy Kloss, Nathan Sulecki, Michael Tkach and Greg Zbach as well as Cardot.
