An art reception featuring an Ephrata artist will be held at Landis Homes on February 8, 2017.
Helena Dueck will show her paintings in oils and watercolors as well as her fiber art, which includes many quilted wall hangings. Her work covers a variety of subjects including florals, domestic animals and portraits.
Dueck is a native of Paraguay and spent her formative years in South America. As a young woman she moved to and became a citizen of Canada. In 1967, she moved to and later got her citizenship in the United States. In addition to pursuing her own art interests, Dueck has also given instruction in drawing and painting, including classes at Landis Homes. She is a longtime volunteer at Material Resources Center in Ephrata and a member of Akron Mennonite Church.
The opening reception, to which the public is welcome, will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 8, in the Harvest View lobby and galleries. Dennis Maust will provide live music.
A snow date has been set for February 22. The works will continue to be on display through April. For more information, call 717-381-3550.
