Artist Bruce Storm will sign his newly released book, “Dragon Views and Other Observations,” at Muncy Historical Society. Storm, a Muncy resident, is a Penn State graduate in commercial art and art education and will autograph his book from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 15 and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 16, at the society’s museum location at 40 N. Main St.
Storm has shown his work in Long Beach Island, New Jersey, New Hope, State College, Williamsport, the Penn State University at Altoona, Pittsburgh, Flourtown, and the Philadelphia areas of Pennsylvania. He has illustrated textbooks, and he has worked in clay, and various sculptural materials, but the vast body of his work is in watercolor and acrylic wash. Storm maintains his studio creating artworks for the annual Muncy Historical Society Art Show.
“Dragon Views and Other Observations” contains 168 color images of Storm’s work not previously published. For those unfamiliar with his art, Storm utilizes familiar architecture, landscapes or still life objects against highly complicated quilt pattern inspired backgrounds. Pattern, color, craftsmanship, and imagination combined with strong compositions are integral parts of his paintings. There are a lot of subtle hidden things going on in his work and this book will allow the reader to look at his paintings time and again to explore what else is happening in them.
In addition to Dragon Views, a number of Storm originals, which are included in the book, will be on display and available.
The society’s meetings and events are always open to the public and light refreshments will be served at the book signing. Please call 570-546-5917 or email MuncyHistorical@aol.com with questions or for additional details.
