  P. Buckley Moss: "Sowing Seeds" Exhibition  
(Arts)

Selected works from the Moss family private collection highlight the work and passion of artist and Moss Arts Center namesake P. Buckley Moss. Many are familiar with the work of artist P. Buckley Moss, with its distinctive character and subject matter that includes placid landscapes, stark and sinewy trees, spirited and expressive animals, and her stylized renderings of the Amish and Mennonite communities. Dubbed "the people's artist," Moss is a household name, her work sold and shown in over 200 galleries nationwide. While she has enjoyed significant commercial success, the foundation of her work is and always has been an unwavering commitment to art education. Moss's life, through her action and example, is a validation of the transformative power of the arts. The art of P. Buckley Moss is more than the sum of its parts; it is, for her and those she inspires, a conduit or a doorway. As a child, it was art that provided Moss with a sense of worth and, eventually, purpose. It is through art that she attained not only a career, the Holy Grail of many artists, but self-realization and a means by which to elevate others stifled by adversity or invisibility.
