Group showing works of 3 artists
CRANBERRY TWP — The Cranberry Artists Network will display the work of three artists — a sculptor, a watercolorist and a pen-and-ink artist — this month.
Gadi Leshem is a self-taught sculptor whose main interest is classical figurative sculpting, mostly portraiture.
Originally from Israel, Leshem moved to Pittsburgh 10 years ago for a job opportunity as a computer engineer.
He often sculpts with water-based clay using photographs as reference material.
Leshem will show 10 of his new sculptures in the showcase near the Back Hall Gallery.
The second artist displaying artwork will be Dee Grieb.
She will show her watercolor paintings in the gallery. She is primarily self taught, but has taken classes and workshops in painting.
Grieb spent many years painting with acrylics, but she has found a niche in watercolor. She photographs places she visits and then renders them with watercolor.
The third artist is Krishna Rathod, whose work was featured last year in the Cranberry Artists Network’s Women’s Exhibit.
She does intricate drawings of figures and people in her unique style.
The exhibit runs through Feb. 28 in the Back Hall Gallery in the Cranberry Township Municipal Center, 2525 Rochester Road, and is open whenever the municipal center is open.
