The Sisters’ Gallery was founded in 1994 by Sisters Mary Stoudt and Jean Cocuzza and operated first in Sinking Spring and then in the Lancaster County village of Stoudtburg until 2010. This exhibit features the sisters’ works and their daughters, Sybil Thompson and Julia Cocuzza.

During the Sisters’ Gallery years, GoggleWorks alumnus Mary Stoudt created art quilts of great depth and creativity and craftsmanship, winning awards at the “Art of the State” in Harrisburg. Her sister, Jean Cocuzza, continued to paint in oils, watercolors and pastels, often inspired by gallery shows, such as “PA Dutch Postmodern”, “Celebrating Our City” and “Mothers Expressions”.

The gallery featured the colorful and whimsical work of Sybil Thompson, Mary’s daughter and currently artist at GoggleWorks studio.

Amy Muzopappa of Muzo Media Productions hosts the art tour. The exhibition will continue until November 27.

Neifert has described her work as an exploration, an inner journey in search of knowledge of our interconnectedness, unity and connection at the level of feelings. She explains that her work is interactive – an emotional conversation between the viewer and the color and form of art. In her abstract work, shapes and forms are usually created by herself, often resembling landscape or human form.

Conrey’s work showcases his love of color and portends his future to “relax” towards abstract expressions in his work and life in general. The love of his family, of God, of his dogs and of those whose life is centered on the family inspires his active life and his artistic vision. Her study of Monet at his iconic lake in France inspires her process, and her compassion for the misunderstood Van Gogh informs the intuitive approach she takes to her work.

Both artists will be featured on Jane Stahl’s “B Inspired” podcast in the coming weeks. Episodes can be listened to on a variety of podcast platforms: Spotify, Google, Apple, Castbox, for example.
