Tremont’s Art + History Museum expands its outdoor art display
(Plain Press, June 2020) Tremont’s first outdoor Art + History Museum was expanded in late April to include an additional one dozen prints. The new display—entitled “Contemporary Views of Tremont”—includes digitally‐reproduced renderings of Tremont street scenes (e.g., Lincoln Park, Christmas Story House, area churches) by local artists such as Tim Herron, Glenn Murray and Brian Pierce. These artworks will join the original exhibit on the southeast corner of Professor and College Avenues: more than 40 watercolor, oil, line‐art and postcard images of old Tremont.
The project is a joint effort launched by Tremont West Development Corporation (TWDC) Arts Committee, the Tremont History Project and the Tremont Central Block Club. All pieces are high‐resolution, waterproof, digital prints designed for 24/7, 12‐month exposure. The display is fully lit and protected by closed circuit security cameras.
The artwork displayed includes: Haab’s Bakery and Grumpy’s — two oil paintings by artist Tim Herron (firstname.lastname@example.org); Lincoln Park Gazebo and St. Andrew Kim Korean Catholic Church (gouache) by artist Brian Pierce (email@example.com); Churches of Tremont (ink) by Chris Dieghan (artfromchris.com); Down Scranton (acrylic) by Glenn Murray (firstname.lastname@example.org); Christmas Story House and Moon (photo) by Glenn Petranek (email@example.com); Krasa Salon (oil) by Robin Roberts (robinrobertsfineart.com); West 14th Street (watercolor) by Jeff Suntala (SuntalaWatercolors.com); Columbus Road (“watercolor photograph”) by Mark Yanochko (firstname.lastname@example.org); and View of Downtown from Tremont by Ron Joranko. An additional piece – Manly Pad by Brian Pierce is posted online at ExperienceTremont.com.
