Appell Fellowship Exhibition
3rd Floor, Gallery Hall
The Appell Arts Fellowship is an 11-month residency program awarded to a graduate of York College’s art program. The Fellowship supports both the Downtown York Arts District and the continued artistic growth of the Fellow. This exhibition, the Fellowship’s culminating experience, attests to the latter.
About the Artist:
Amber Wiesberg '19 is an artist from New Windsor, MD, and recently concluded her residency as Louis Appell Fellow at Marketview Arts in June 2020. As a graduate of York College of Pennsylvania's Fine Art Program, Wiesberg has developed her style of creating joyful works exploring the relationships between space, texture and shape. Wiesberg primarily works in acrylic, but enjoys experimenting with other mediums such as embroidery, fabric, and vinyl. Her work pushes the boundaries of clashing patterns and spatial planes. Her work continues to evolve as she discovers new patterns and color combinations. Wiesberg has exhibited in local galleries and college buildings since 2017 as well as received awards for her artistic achievement. Under the judgement of Juror Stephen Towns, Wiesberg received third place for Fine Art in the 2019 York College Student Juried Exhibition. Her first solo show took place at Gallery @227 in York, Pennsylvania.
