Time Stands Still with Internationally Known Artist at HACC
HARRISBURG, Pa. – The paintings by Edmond Praybe, an internationally known artist, will be displayed in a virtual art exhibit curated by the
Rose Lehrman Art Gallery at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, from Jan. 19-Feb. 11, 2021.
Praybe’s work focuses on reinventing a feeling of the world he inhabits by searching for a quality of timelessness in his images and depicting a very specific sense of time and place in each piece. The paintings feel familiar and unexpected and believable but not always entirely logical. 
Using Zoom, Praybe will discuss his work on Feb. 11 at 5:30 p.m. To learn how to join the lecture, please visit the Rose Lehrman Art Gallery
website. The lecture and exhibit are free and open to the public.
Praybe is a Baltimore-area painter and draftsman with a home and studio in Arnold, Maryland. His current work reflects the themes of still life, figures in interiors and landscapes. He has been teaching painting at
Anne Arundel Community College since fall 2015. His works have been included in solo, small group and national juried exhibitions throughout the U.S., extensively in New York and the Baltimore metro area.
The Rose Lehrman Art Gallery received state arts funding support through a grant from the
Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Event details are subject to change. For more information, please contact Shawn Williams at 717-780-2478 or
