SummArt International Exhibition at Linde Corporation Home

26 May 2016

 

In 2005 I was asked by Sharon Cosgrove artist and professor at Wilkes University to participate in an extraordinary 'paint along' with Turkish artists who were coming to Wilkes-Barre to paint for the week.   We were sponsored by Linde Corporation who is business partners with Mete Bora who sponsors artist 'residencies' throughout the world.  He is a huge patron of the arts hence creating SummArt - a huge platform in Istanbul for performing and visual art.  Three years ago Scott flew Sharon and me to Moldova where we were hosted by Mete.  We painted along Turkish and Romanian artists for a week and treated like royalty.  

 

 

 

 

Recently Scott asked Mete for a smattering of Turkish art to display at his office in Pittston, Pa.  The work is hanging there as well as some works from the artists who participated in the 2005 paint-extravaganza.  As a tribute to Mete whose birthday is June 5 there will be an open house and viewing of the artwork from 2-pm.
