SHAMOKIN - Welch Art Studios of Shamokin is now presenting its spring student show "Art in Bloom" in the lobby of Susquehanna Bank on Independence Street in Shamokin. The show features the work of 17 artists,including students and instructor Lisa Welch, all with a floral theme.

Artists were encouraged to create pieces that were unique and dynamic with a fresh twist on the typical floral painting. A variety of media are represented including watercolor, pastel, pen and ink, marker, colored pencil, acrylic, block print and mixed material collage.

The work can be seen through May 29.

Susquehanna Bank is excited to bring to the community the work of a new artist or group of artists each month in conjunction with the Northumberland County Council for the Arts and Humanities.
