GETTYSBURG >> The Drawing Room Gallery is hosting a give-away for a work of art created by Chambersburg artist Anne Finucane. In September and October visitors to the gallery at 333 Baltimore Street can enter at no cost, and have a chance to win a hand-pulled etching by Finucane.
The winning ticket will be drawn on Oct. 31: the winner need not be present to win, and the gallery will ship to any location within the Continental U.S. Gallery hours for September are Fridays and Saturdays 1-6 p.m. and Sundays noon to 5 p.m. (with extended hours until 8 p.m. on First Friday, Oct. 2).
"Art has always been part of my life," Finucane said.
She earned her bachelor's degree from Swarthmore College, and studied art there with a focus on abstraction. Upon moving to Central Pennsylvania, Anne fell in love with the landscape. "The give-away etching shows the view to the south, from my home in Chambersburg," she said. "I've always been grateful for the beautiful views that are so much a part of living in South Central PA."
Finucane's work has been featured in solo shows throughout the Cumberland Valley, in juried national competitions and in membership exhibitions with the Franklin County Art Alliance and Penn's Woods Printmakers. Her paintings and drawings are in the permanent collections of Summit Health, F&M Trust Company and Gettysburg College, and her work was the subject of a feature article in American Artist Magazine in April of 2004.
Now in its second season as a cooperative art gallery, The Drawing Room Gallery features a wide variety of fine art by local, award-winning artists Amy Lindenberger, Claire Beadon Carnell, Anne Finucane and Charlotte Yealey.
The gallery welcomes all visitors interested in learning more about artwork created by local artists. For more information, call 717-321-3647 or visit the gallery website at www.thedrawingroomgalleryllc.com .
