Cresson, Pa.- The regional call for Cow Art by the Mount Aloysius Art Alliance was a huge success!  The Winter Bovine Art Show at Mount Aloysius College is open to the public all month-long.  The juried exhibit is on display in the College’s Wolf-Kuhn Gallery located on the first floor of the iconic Main Building on campus.

Organizer Cathy Homer reports that the displays house 46 unique pieces including paintings, folk art, antiques, and photography.  Each piece features domestic cattle including dairy, beef, Scottish Highland and Texas Longhorns.

“The youngest artist is a nine-year old from Penns Manor Elementary School,” she said.  “The oldest piece is an oil painting from Ireland completed in 1964.”  Ms. Homer added that the person submitting the Irish piece bought it in a thrift store for five dollar because he liked the frame.  “The Mount Aloysius Art Alliance has valued the surprise piece at $500,” she said.  “And the owner of the painting was advised to research the artist as it may still be undervalued.”

An opening reception will be held on Sunday, February 16th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Wolf-Kuhn Gallery.  The public is warmly invited to attend.  For additional information on the Bovine Art Display, contact Ms. Cathy Homer at (814) 749-741, or (814) 977-3238.
