Haas Center’s skies ‘pouring paint’

For Immediate Release:  Sept. 2, 2014

BLOOMSBURG — A new exhibit in Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s Haas Gallery will open visitors’ eyes to the skies. Paintings by Dale Inglett, “Other Skies,” will be on display from Sept. 4 to Oct. 9, with an opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The exhibit will be open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4:30. Admission is free.

The exhibit is about testing the illusions of the different aspects of phenomena. The painted images give a basic feeling of being in space and showing different types of atmospheric natures. In these works, Inglett attempts to make the images protrude and creates different structures while retaining the balance of the elements as a whole.

Inglett earned a Masters in Fine Arts degree from University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art and is an associate professor of art at Alfred University in his home state of New York. His work has been shown in many exhibits including The Memorial Art Gallery in New York Twin Kittens Gallery in Atlanta, Ga., and The Georgia Museum of Art.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The university, celebrating 175 years of excellence in 2014, serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
