Works by Penelope Przekop
March 7 - 28
Please Join Us for the Opening Reception
Saturday, March 7, 4 – 6 p.m.
The Norsworthy Gallery will present artwork by Shreveport native, Penelope (Hall) Przekop. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 7th from 4-6pm. The show will go through March 28th.
Penelope Przekop (Prez-cop) is a figurative expressionist American painter who spent the first half of her adult life writing fiction, and then began painting in 2008. She is the author of five books, including four novels. Her art often includes a strong sense of character and story.
Galleries in New York City, Philadelphia, Cleveland, California, Italy, and Central America have represented and shown her work. It has been acquired by two Italian museums.
Her work primarily involves a blend of acrylic, ink, and pastels. It's influenced by fashion photography and a childhood spent immersed in the high-end interior design industry. Her mother, Jane Haden, (now retired) was a successful Shreveport designer whose work was featured in publications such as Architectural Digest and Southern Living during the 1970s and 80s.
The emotional content of Penelope’s work is influenced by growing up in Louisiana before moving to the Northeast in 1991, and all of the cultural differences between the two. To better understand some of the underlying themes that also emotionally influence her art, read her (almost) memoir, Please Love Me. (Her novels can be found on Amazon.)
Penelope graduated from Northwood High School and LSUS. She also has a Master’s Degree from Kennesaw State University. Her father, Bill Hall, (now retired) was a beloved teacher and guidance counselor at Huntington High School for many years.
Penelope currently lives in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
Signed copies of Penelope’s novels will be available at the reception. There will also be opportunity to order signed prints of her works.
Please feel free to invite all your friends. Everyone is welcome!
