From now through October 9, the University’s D’Arrigo Family Gallery
is showcasing artwork from three Philadelphia area mixed-media artists, Tom Herbert, Blanche Levitt Torphy and Elynne Rosenfeld.
Mr. Herbert’s work is a blend of collage, painting and assemblage in which he attempts to reflect and distort the world around us. His work is represented by Third Street Gallery, and online at Inliquid.com. Mr. Herbert holds a master of fine arts degree from East Carolina University, and has exhibited numerous works around the Philadelphia area.
Ms. Levitt Torphy creates landscapes and abstractions using materials such as cheeseclothc, natural leaves, bark, newsprint, crossword puzzles and old book pages, among others. She is a former president of ARTsisters, a local women’s professional art organization. She has exhibited her paintings at numerous juried and invitational shows on the Main Line and in the Philadelphia area since 2003.Her work can be viewed on BlancheLevittTorphy.com.
Elynne Rosenfeld, curator of the show, is exhibiting canvases of acrylic paint, glass beads and tempered glass. A Reiki practitioner and teacher, she paints abstracts using elements of sacred Reiki activation symbols. Reiki is a Japanese hands-on stress reduction and relaxation technique brought into practice in the early 1920s. Her intent is to create spaces for peace and contentment in the viewer, without revealing the symbols themselves. Ms. Rosenfeld has presented her artwork at more than 60 shows and holds her master in fine arts degree in painting from UMASS Amherst.
