LOCAL ARTIST FEATURED IN EXHIBIT PORTRAITS BY SAPKO IN DISPLAY.
LANCASTER - Portraits that seek to capture more than just a likeness are hallmarks of the art of local artist Laura Sapko.
Her works are featured in an exhibit titled ``Every Face Tells a Story,'' which opened Saturday at the Cedar Centre Art Gallery, 44857 Cedar St.
Sapko grew up in New Britain, Conn., and was introduced to art through a city youth program called Noah's Great Rainbow. Through high school and her involvement in the Young Artist Guild of New Britain, she continued her art education in sculpture, weaving, painting and printmaking. After winning several awards and scholarships, she attended Philadelphia College of Art, where she focused on illustration.
After 25 years of raising her family, she resumed study on art and illustration at Antelope Valley College. Several pieces of her work have been shown in the college Art Gallery, the Lancaster Art Museum and the Cedar Centre Art Gallery.
Sapko's favorite mediums are watercolor, colored pencil, pastels and acrylic, often in combinations. Her work is at times life-size or bigger.
