PENNSYLVANIA---As a boy growing up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Eric Armusik loved to draw. He won his first art contest at the age of 10 and went on to participate in numerous competitions and receive awards. On Sundays, he stared at the walls and ceilings of his community’s large, ornate Catholic churches, filled with elaborate murals and colorful stained glass windows. The painter also hopes to show the full-scale exhibit in the United States and possibly in Europe for the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death in 2021. [link]
