BELLS ACROSS PA

deadline: Monday, April 1, 2024

America250PA is now accepting design submissions from Pennsylvania artists for the ‘Bells Across PA’ art series. The selected artists will execute their designs on fiberglass bell sculptures. These bells will be adorned and magically transformed by local artists and sponsored by businesses or individuals as part of America250PA’s efforts to celebrate the commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of the United States. The goal is at least one bell in each of the 67 counties across Pennsylvania.

Artists’ RFP can be downloaded here.

Elaine M. Erne, co-founder and co-director of Star Wheel Printers, received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Erne’s drawings and prints have been featured in numerous invitational and juried national exhibitions. The Lives and Traumas of Stuffed Animals is a series of comically disturbing depictions of Mr. Bunny and his friends under siege. The series is made up of very large graphite pencil drawings, woodblocks, etchings, and lithographs. Although there is a playful side, the underlining theme is fear, cruelty, and survival.  In recurring distressful situations people often become like dolls, presenting a steady happy personae no matter what is happening.  Though the circumstances represented in the work are not real, no stuffed animals were hurt in the making of the work, they capture the aura that surrounds a person who has no control but will not give in.
