Painter and Sculptor Come Together at Johnstown Art Show

Dialogue, an exhibition featuring paintings and sculptures of two artists, will be shown at this year's annual ART WORKS Art Show in Johnstown. The inaugural showing will start at 4:00 PM on Saturday, June 2nd.

Norman Ed, the exhibit's sculptor and Johnstown native, said he will be working on the pieces up until the day of the show.

"The majority of the work is all buttoned up," Ed said, "but I love the energy and the certain kind of tension and frustration about trying to pull something off."

Ed added that the exhibition is appropriate for all ages, but children may interpret pieces differently than adults.

Ed has been working as a contemporary sculptor for more than three decades. He is also a teacher at Westmont Hilltop middle and senior high schools.

Artists Chuck Olson is the second artist in the show. Olson's abstract expressionism paintings are known in the international art community having worked for more than 30 years in four countries.

The event is free of charge and will run through July 14th. Both artists will be available for questions throughout the event.

There will also be a live acoustic performance on June 7th by "The Six" at 7:30 PM. The concert comes with a fee.
