Landscape Painter’s Works to be Exhibited

“Ice Lakes Swamp” is among the works of Helen Evanchik that will be on display at The University of Scranton’s Hope Horn Gallery Oct. 20 to Nov. 17.
October 12, 2017

The exhibit “Here and There, Now and Then: Paintings by Helen Evanchik” will show Friday, Oct. 20 to Friday, Nov. 17, at The University of Scranton’s Hope Horn Gallery.

Evanchik uses the en plein air, or “open air,” technique to craft landscape paintings of Long Island, New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania. For this technique, artists paint outdoors in order to capture the effects of natural light and movement, rather than creating pieces in a studio environment.

A native of New York City, Evanchik received her arts training at The Cooper Union. She has participated in numerous regional and national exhibitions. Evanchik works outdoors to accurately craft landscape paintings of Long Island, New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Evanchik will present a gallery lecture “Here and There, Now and Then” on Friday, Oct. 20, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Pearn auditorium in Brennan Hall. A public reception will immediately follow at The Hope Horn Gallery on the fourth floor in Hyland Hall from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The exhibit, lecture and reception are open to the public, free of charge.
