STERLING and DOROTHY STRAUSER were an important part of the Pocono art community, not only through Sterling’s painted works but also as collectors themselves and promoters of other self-taught artists.

Sterling painted locally for more than 65 years. Dorothy was a gifted watercolor artist in her own right and is widely known for her hooked rugs.

Focusing on the Strausers’ love for each other, their community, nature, and a good dessert, “With Love, From the Strausers” will highlight 40 previously unseen works of art by the artist couple.

These pieces are part of a larger private collection recently gifted to the Monroe County Historical Association from Kathryn L. Mikels.

Also on display will be photographs of the Strausers’ daily life and work by local photographers Charles Decker, Jesse Weiss, and David W. Coulter.

The Gallery at Auradell is a special venue at the Stroudsmoor Country Inn that supports the arts in the Poconos by featuring the work of many talented and accomplished regional artists. An online gallery is an extension of the live exhibition series, and provides instant access to past Stroudsburg artists.
