Indiana County Mother and Daughter Artists Showcase Their Work in “A little bit of everything,” a joint exhibit that opened Friday at the Latrobe Art Center.
The title reflects the content she provided, said Jolene Joyner of Clymer, who shows with his daughter, Jonelle Summerfield from Indiana.
“It was bric-a-brac that was lying around the house,” Joyner said during the opening reception. “You walk into a room and hit a painting and a lot of them fall off. So it was time to sell some.
It’s a modest way of describing the paintings that line the gallery wall, including rural scenes, cats, still lifes, and scenes of European travels and beach visits.
For her part, Summerfield said the title refers to her current inspirations. Where she used to work in thematic series, lately she paints any subject that moves her. His work also includes European scenes, animals and still lifes, as well as interiors and street scenes.
Michael Tusaythe center’s executive director, said that knowing the relationship between the artists, he was intrigued by finding similarities and differences in their styles and subject matter.
Joyner and Summerfield had a joint exhibition last year at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Ligonier Valley. They have also shown together at the Artists Hand Gallery and Espresso Bar in Indiana and in a group show at the Greensburg Art Center. They also show separately around the area.
“A Bit of Everything” continues at the center until March 26. The prices of the works presented vary from $150 to $1,100.
