Her work will remain on display in the Wolf-Kuhn Galley throughout October, ending on Friday, November 16th.

Twenty eight pieces in all, the work is a delightful potpourri of art for all seasons.
Artist Sally Stewart is a retired art instructor from the Greater Johnstown School District. A 1985 recipient of the Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Distinguished Alumni Award, Ms. Stewart has received numerous honors for her watercolors and wood carvings.
Her “Out of the Depth I Cry to Three,” a collage of wood and steel was inspired by the haunting images of the September 11th terrorists attacks. She has also created a series of crosses using woods from all over the world. She has made over 50 for the Lutheran Church of America to give to world dignitaries, and her crosses can be found in more than 20 counties. See several on display now as part of her Mount Aloysius Show.
