Dive in into my first day of Summer on the streets of Scranton, Pennsylvania. I am inspired by nature, architecture, and the simple random things in life. Check out my work on Instagram: thirtythirdwheel

Chris Hodges is a talented emerging NEPA based artist. He describes himself in the following:
Born in England I drew on and off for fun as a child. After being told I had a good eye for art I started to apply myself. I recently gained enough confidence to start displaying my work in public. I have been painting for about a year and drawing for several years. I enjoy trying new mediums and pushing myself out of my comfort zone artistically.
I will be showing at as many venues as I can get into locally this year and will be trying to get more exposure in the coming years.
This week’s vibrant featured artist is Mike Reznick, who describes himself and his work in his artist statement:
“The way I found art was due to my dyslexia, as images helped me learn. My art is created through things that either happen to me or that I have found interesting in life. I prefer freestyle mixed media painting with basically anything that will make a visual mark on whatever object or canvas I am working on. My go to supplies are usually acrylic paints, airbrushing, paint markers, and speedball ink. “When in doubt drip it out” has always been my motto throughout my self taught career in art. A lot of graffiti/tattoo artists have truly helped me hone my skills in along this artistic journey.”
Reznick is hosting and presenting his works in the upcoming collaborative art exhibit, “The Broken Heart Art Show,” this Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at “The 570 Gallery,” located at 59 N. Main St. Wilkes Barre, PA 18701.
Songs & Dances: A Collaborative Exhibition will feature the collaborative works of Melissa S. Short and Justin Rowles. Together, the pair’s art is wild and unpredictable, intertwining the worlds of song and dance. Their exhibition will be during First Friday Scranton, PA, February 2 at POSH from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Melissa’s work opens a door into the visual world of music. The colors in her pieces flow in a mixture of hues and textures as vital and intentional elements of songs.
