On Sunday, Hollidaysburg, Pa., visual artist and writer Steven Sherrill’s exhibit of paintings, “Look At Me,” will open at Bright Hill’s Word & Image Gallery. Sherrill will be at the reception from 3 to 5 p.m. to give an artist’s talk and answer questions about his paintings and writing. 

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, will remain in the gallery through June 27. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday and Saturday, during Word Thursdays readings on June 12 and June 26, and by appointment.

For more information, call 829-5055 or email

Sherrill is an associate professor of English and integrative arts at Penn State University, Altoona, where he writes, teaches, paints, and captains the Allegheny Bilge Rats Shanty Choir. Though primarily a novelist (with three books and another forthcoming), visual art has been a part of his creative output.

Of these paintings in “Look At Me” Steven notes that narrative is a primal element in his creative life: Story. He spends as much time with the characters in these paintings as he does with characters in his fiction. The key difference is that, in the paintings, he is content to merely suggest story. Sherrill works in series, and there are four series in this exhibit.
