TUNKAHNNOCK — The Dietrich Theater is presenting a new exhibit in the “New Gallery” by married couple, watercolor artist Lavona Daniels and photographer Bob Daniels.

The beauty of nature is expressed through meticulous attention to detail, light, and color in both the paintings and the photographs. Both artists capture the wonder of the beauty of their backyard as well as the places they travel. Occasionally they record the same scene, such as a boathouse in Maine.

Leading busy and productive lives, Lavona as a nurse and Bob as a high school science teacher, and raising a family at the same time, meant painting and art became easier when they retired. Lavona was interested in painting since the age of eight, but it was classes with Jan Henning at the Endless Mountains Council on the Arts that she credits the most. Photography became a passion of Bob’s when he was in his teens.

The exhibit is on display at the Dietrich through July during movie show times and by appointment. All paintings and photographs are for sale.

A public reception is scheduled for 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 21. For more information about the exhibit, call 570-996-1500.
