MEDIA, PA (March 23, 2015) — Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) Main Line, formerly known as Martins Run, will continue the community’s popular and long running Spotlight Artist Series in April with a colorful exhibit highlighting local King of Prussia artist Carlene Brod. The display, which runs through April 30, is open to all WEL ML residents and visitors all month long, and will open to the public for an exclusive one-night-only wine reception event on April 13 at 7 p.m.
The Spotlight Artist Series has been a popular resident benefit since its creation in 2012. It was originally created to enable Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line residents to experience new and unique art pieces right in their own communities.
“Our residents anticipate new artists each month, and our Spotlight Artist Series has fast become a popular feature of our unique residential community,” says Linda Sterthous, Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line executive director. “Many of our residents are artists themselves and enjoy critiquing and discussing the various local and regional talent gracing the walls of their own home. Residents are often inspired by the Series and enjoy recreating pieces in our art studio onsite,” Sterthous said.
Artist Carlene Brod, the focus of April’s spotlight, has earned local recognition for her unique and creative use of color and for her ability to distill natural surroundings into artful creations. An entrepreneur at heart, she has experimented with clothing, glass and wood, among other mediums. The artist even wrote and illustrated her own children’s book, The Surprise on the Patio.
Brod has previously exhibited her work in private collections, galleries and colleges throughout the greater Philadelphia area, including Main Line Art Center, Montgomery County Community College and University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. Additionally, she’s won awards for her artwork including the Rose Bolee Memorial Award, Frank Moulton Carter Memorial Award and the Lois Rapp Award.
