Penelope Fox Art Studio *Art Show* 
by Cate Murway

Art Show! Art Show! Saturday, October 5, 2019.
Doors open at NOON and the acknowledgment ceremony will begin at 1:00PM.

“Congratulations to the students of the Penelope Fox Art Studio located in Canal Works, 10 Canal Street in historic Bristol on the Delaware, whose art work has been selected for the Art Show and then will be displayed for public view, in the Jury Assembly room in the Bucks County Justice Center.” 
Mary K. Smithson, Clerk of Courts of the Court of Common Pleas in Bucks County/ Villa Joseph Marie HS Board of Directors Vice Chairman.
The $86 million seven-story Bucks County Justice Center facility was built across the street from the ’60s-era county courthouse in Doylestown, 100 N. Main Street, and officially unveiled January 20, 2015.

All are invited this Saturday, October 5th to celebrate the students of Penelope Fox Art Studio on the Canal Works first floor. Come join in, view their artwork, tour the studio, meet the team, and share some refreshments. The artwork is hung and ready for viewing. It’s time to celebrate!

This Art Show was open to ALL of the Penelope Fox Art Studio students. Call for Entry-Art went to each student. Jina contacted the students, most who reside anywhere in the areas of Bristol Borough, Bristol Township, Bensalem, Levittown and NE Philadelphia, and invited each to submit up to 5 photos of their work in any variety of mediums.
Having students choose the artwork for their own exhibition isn’t a particularly new idea.
Twenty five artists from the ages of 5 through ‘somewhere in their 60’s’ have entered their pen & ink, or colored pencil drawing, or their watercolor or acrylic piece, or a collage creation. 

All artwork will be either hanging in the studio or presented on easels in the Canal Works lobby/common area in this fantastic celebration of creativity and excellent craftsmanship. Purchase inquiries will be accepted.
Support the budding artists and go home with an inexpensive, original work.
Hidden talent….and art on a budget… awaits!

And for those who have ever even entertained the idea of taking an art class, Saturday will also feature information pertaining to the studio offerings. This will provide an excellent opportunity to get answers for any questions, PLUS a 10% discount on any class chosen by any new aspiring art student that day. Owner, Jina Dierolf will gladly guide any potential art student in the right direction. 

Jina Dierolf IS Penelope Fox Art. 
She provides an eclectic array of entry point classes for budding artists of every age, introducing a lifelong relationship to creativity and the arts.
This Art Show, a “dressy casual” event on Saturday, October 5th, is free to attend and refreshments will be served. Doors open at NOON and the acknowledgment ceremony will begin at 1:00PM.

The Penelope Fox Art Studio was chosen by Mary Smithson for its passionate commitment to keeping people of all ages interested in creating art. Arts education is a big part of building a 21st century creative mind and the arts increase opportunities for self-expression, enabling each aspiring artist to tap into a different part of his/her brain and imagine new ways of interpreting the world and addressing solutions to complex problems.
When the new Justice Center was designed, an important part of the design process was making sure that art work could be displayed in the center, and Mrs. Mary Smithson invites students of all ages to be a part of this prestigious honor.
“This program was started so students and their parents could see the justice center and the experience of a real courtroom and because sometimes we’re so busy, we don’t have the time to actually see student work and their talents. These events increase opportunities to showcases the artists’ abilities as well as spotlight children’s abilities in the arts. Many go to art colleges and this is how they express what they like doing. Guests are invited to inspect and examine the art pieces, enjoy and reflect on their talents, and see just how they use the pencils and what kind of pencils they use.
The local art studios are the institutions that collaborate to give these tools to the students.”

One of the reasons that Jina caught Mary’s attention is because even though some adults proceed with trepidation when it comes to taking a class, Jina exemplifies creativity in inspiring and encouraging adults, as well as the young art students. “She is well organized and passionate about what she is doing. With the talents she has, she can assist in the art of drawing and make it fun using her inspiring tips and ideas while presenting exciting, new projects.” Jina gives young artists the very confidence to explore.

Jina happily shared, “We are most proud that the studio was chosen to show off the work the students have been doing. It’s awesome!” For the last six years, she has been working with kids. Some of them are now in High School, intending on furthering their education and pursuing Art, so they are beginning to prepare portfolios. Penelope Fox Art Studio is there to continue to help the emerging artists! 
Yardley artist Carolyn Bruno Havrilla, a Bucks County Impressionist with more than 25 years of experience who teaches classes in this Studio, has offered a portfolio review service by appointment.

Mary and The President Judge will be at the Penelope Fox Art Studio on Saturday to recognize each artist showing his/ her work and will present each with an Art Show certificate.

After the reception, the artwork will be transported and hung in the Jury Assembly room in the Justice Center for the month of October to be viewed by anyone in the Jury contemplation room.

Community and supporting local artists is important. 
Don’t miss your chance to experience the powerful art of some of the most talented artists.
Thou ART invited to just come for the FUN of it!
