STARLIGHT, PA — The Big D Arts and Crafts League will feature the watercolors of member Jane Connell in the gallery at the Inn at Starlight Lake for the month of June. Also in the gallery there will be oils, watercolors and photography by other league members.
Connell, of Fishs Eddy, NY, was born in Richmond, VA. As a child she lived in Belle Harbor, until her family moved to Brooklyn, NY. As an only child, she spent many hours drawing, while sitting at her father’s desk and eventually taking lessons at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
Over the ensuing years of raising a family on Long Island, she still pursued creative activities using different media. After her retirement from Hofstra University, she and her husband Larry moved to Fishs Eddy. Many years ago, Connell was introduced to Jack Yelle of Roscoe, a well known watercolorist, and began taking classes with him.
Connell has exhibited her work in a range of indoor and outdoor shows including the NoHo Art Walk in New York City, the Hancock Town Hall, the Town of Roscoe Summer Fair and also does commissioned artwork of pets and homes.
The inn is located on Starlight Road. For more information, call 800/248-2519 or visit www.innatstarlightlake.com .
