During the month of March I will be featured as the Transit Fine Arts Gallery’s Artist of the Month. Please stop on by to see my Voight-Kampff* Art Exhibit. Or better yet, there will be a reception at the gallery on Monday the 16th of March from 7:00-8:30 PM. The event is open to the public.

The Transit Fine Arts Gallery is open to the public 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday. The facility showcases the work of regional artists displaying their paintings, photography, pottery, jewelry, woodworking, weaving, and much more.

The Transit Fine Arts Gallery is located at 206 Seneca, Oil City, PA – phone (814) 667 3982. (map)

*The 1982 science fiction film Blade Runner revolves around characters called Nexus Series replicants genetically designed by the Tyrell Corporation. Replicants in the movie are virtually identical to adult humans, but have superior strength, agility, and variable intelligence depending on their model. The only way to distinguish replicant from human is by using a Voight-Kampff test that detects a replicant’s lack of emotions. A derogatory term for a replicant is “skin-job.” The Voight-Kampff Art Exhibit will emphasize George’s recent “skin job” paintings. He considers these pieces to be Trans Avant-garde works that explore the emotions evoked by glimpses of skin.
