  • Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle, PA (1888PressRelease) April 24, 2012 - Dieffenbach will show a series of new paintings from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21, at 124 Ramsey Ave., located across the street from Wilson College. The exhibition, entitled Reverie, will remain on view through April 24. Harmyk will show a series of new photographs from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 20, at Historic Preservation Services, 252 E. King St., Chambersburg. Her exhibition is entitled To View the World.

    In addition to the separate exhibitions, selections from the students' artwork will be shown in Wilson's Bogigian Gallery from April 26 to May 22. A reception for the artists will be held in the gallery from 5 to 6:30 p.m. April 26.

    The Bogigian Gallery, which is located on the second floor of Lortz Hall, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.

    The connection Dieffenbach has to each of her paintings allows the term "reverie" to define what her work addresses. The luxury of daydreaming and being lost in thought can allow imagination and creativity to inspire the dreamer.

    Harmyk's photos, which range from close-ups of eyes to New York City street scenes, provide an intimate look through the artist's eyes in an exploration of what we see as well as how - by what means - we view. The images are personal, while at the same time, they encourage the viewer to step into the photographer's place and question their own ways of connecting with their surroundings.

    Both students will present their scholarship in brief talks on April 27, during Wilson's annual Senior Research Day.
