Alicia Stankay, author and photographer, has two framed photos featured in the
"Legacies: The Merrick Masters Art Exhibition" at the Merrick Art Gallery in New Brighton.
Stankay said local artists were asked to submit up to three pieces of artwork, including photography, to be judged on the theme of "legacy" relating to the tri-state area.
"I was excited to hear that two of my photos made it," she said.
Stankay has published two books, most recently "Tales of Twenty Women: Reflections of Love." She has produced both cover photos on her books and, in 2011 and last year, her photos graced the cover of the Loyalhanna Review, a magazine out of Ligonier.
The juror for "Legacies" was Carol R. Brode, assistant professor of art at Seton Hill University and director of Harlan Gallery, Seton Hill University in Greensburg.
This area, once the western frontier in the early days of our nation, has been one of confluences, interconnections and conflations ever since.
The exhibit will have a reception for the general public from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 18 and runs through Sunday, July 6.
The Merrick Art Gallery is located at 1100 5th Ave., New Brighton. Hours are: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, 1 to 4 p.m. alternating Sundays, and closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
