The 5 x 5 Show: 3rd Edition is an annual event that occurs in the Lehigh Valley which brings together 5 talented artists working with 5 different media. Their unique visions demonstrate their skills, styles, and versatility while celebrating the distinctive nature of their respective media. The participating artists are Richard Begbie (photography), James A. DePietro (painting), Barbara Kozero (mosaics / sculpture), Jacqueline Meyerson (pastels), and Maryann Riker (mixed media collages / assemblages). For this special exhibition, the quintet of artists decided to set up a particular challenge: to gather some inanimate objects together and select one or more of those items to serve as inspirations for a future work of art. The resulting works of art will also be on display. All of these artists’ works has been shown in many galleries and museums and have been published in books and national magazines. They continue to exhibit their artwork in juried exhibitions throughout the United States. The exhibit runs from October 26 until November 16, 2017.
