June 13th “In the Absence of Sight” Artists’ Reception
New works by wire sculptor Sean Brady and photography artist Mary Kroptavich will be on view at Art E Fekts on Thursday, June 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibit is entitled “In the Absence of Sight” and all of the pieces will be for sale and on display for the entire month of June. Meet the artists and take a look at the many fine art offerings of the gallery while enjoying wine and cheese.
Sean Brady has been sculpting with wire since 1998, mostly working with galvanized steel between 12-21 gauge. You can see his work all over the Wyoming Valley Area.
Mary Kroptavich is a portrait artist who strives to capture the beauty within us all. When she is not photographing humans, she is in the woods capturing wildlife; being outdoors is what keeps her grounded. The child of two blind parents, Kroptavich grew up having no camera or photos on the wall. Since childhood, she has been the “eyes and storyteller” for those who cannot see. That experience has given her the wonderful talent of seeing beauty with her eyes closed and creating beautiful images. She has an affinity for classic fine art portraits and black and white images.
