The Linder Gallery at Keystone College will present an exhibition of sculpture entitled "Terra Firma and the Spirit of Flight" by Scranton artist Denis Yanashot through Friday, Oct. 19 on the Keystone campus in La Plume.

Yanashot is known throughout the region for his elegant carved marble sculptures of flowers and plant forms. This exhibit features many of these works in addition to more recent sculptures made of assembled bones and other found objects relating to the experience of flight.

A graduate of Keystone College, Yanashot teaches art at Riverside High School in Taylor. This exhibition is the result of his participation in the 2012 NEPA Regional Art exhibit for which he received the Best of Show award and a One-Person Exhibit award at Keystone College.

"Denis' work is known for its elegance and beauty, but I think many viewers will be immensely surprised and challenged by his more recent sculptures," said Drake Gómez, director of the Linder Gallery. "The theme of flight has enticed many artists, but Denis has firsthand experience through his years of hang gliding, so there's an authenticity to his work."
