A drawing by Anne Finucane.

Two free art exhibitions will open Wednesday, Sept. 12, at Wilson College−one in Lortz Hall’s Bogigian Gallery featuring the work of members of The Foundry, and one in the John Stewart Memorial Library’s Cooley Gallery featuring artwork by Chambersburg artist Anne Finucane.

Receptions to mark the openings will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. that day in both venues.

The Foundry at Wilson exhibition is a selection of member artwork from the grassroots, artist-led cooperative located at 100 S. Main St. A variety of artwork will be exhibited, such as paintings, drawings and sculpture. The exhibition will run until Oct. 12.

In 2016, Wilson and its Division of Arts and Letters formed a partnership with The Foundry that provides opportunities for exhibition exchanges, as well as possible studio/workshop opportunities.

Anne Finucane: Printmaker takes inspiration from Pennsylvania’s forests, orchards and fields. Whether rendering them abstractly or realistically through etchings, pastels or colored pencils, her goal is to convey the excitement she feels about the natural world to others. The exhibition will continue through Nov. 30.

Finucane, who has worked with Chambersburg’s Council for the Arts and the Franklin County Art Alliance, has served as guest curator and juror for art shows throughout the area, and as a panelist for the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Her artwork has been featured in solo shows throughout the Cumberland Valley, in juried national competitions and in membership exhibitions with FCAA and Penn’s Woods Printmakers.
