"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

It is with great excitement and anticipation that beginning on October 5, 2018, we are presenting Bucks County's first Art Hotel venture to our communities Show More...of art enthusiasts far and near. With Bucks County's already rich artistic history, its large selection of galleries, art events and festivals, the culinary offerings, the beauty of its landscape at all seasons, and its deeply rooted tradition of historic Inns, the blending of art and hospitality comes as a natural next step.
In this first Art Hotel exhibition and art sale, we are thrilled to have brought together one of Bucks County's most treasure Inns, one of the area's most established Fine Art galleries and the works by an African American expressionist painter from Philadelphia.
Having a keen sense of appreciation for this area's cultural diversity, curator Stephanie Lisle was inspired to combine the colorful and lively world of art exhibitions with the atmosphere of comfort and tranquility at the Centre Bridge Inn in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful, historic, and well established Center Bridge Inn is not only a perfect get away retreat in bucolic Bucks County, it is set in the idyllic landscape of the Delaware River, perfect backdrop for weddings, romantic dinners and overnight stays during all seasons. Their selection of eight sophisticated and tastefully decorated guest rooms already feature themed artwork by Bucks County contemporary and traditional artists.
Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio has been a leading authority on American Art, and an important member of the Bucks County art community for almost 40 years. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American paintings, with a focus on painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Gratz Gallery offers a wide selection of Fine Art from Impressionism to Modern Art. In addition to art investment Gratz Gallery offers custom framing and fine art conservation services. Included in the gallery's extensive selection of art, is a collection of works by African American expressionist painter Bernard Harmon.
Bernard Harmon (1935 - 1989) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1935. Harmon was primarily a portrait painter and a well loved teacher in the Philadelphia area. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School and Temple's Tyler School of Art. Beloved by many, Harmon taught in the Philadelphia School District, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the University of the Arts, and at Drexel University. Harmon's portraits were commissioned by Philadelphia Jazz organist Jimmy Smith and Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Bernard Harmon was considered a Renaissance man by friends and colleagues for his interests not only in art but music and theater as well. He was familiar and friends with many contemporary African American artists such as Doc Thrash, Selma Burke, Paul Keene Jr., Allen Freelon and Charles Searles. His work has a loose expressionist style that can be related to the work of Alice Kneel.
When visiting the Delaware River community, stop in for dinner and a drink, listen to live music on the weekends, stay for the night, and get enchanted by the colorful art of Bernard Harmon. But don't wait too long; exhibitions will change just as the seasons do.
The Center Bridge Inn is located at 2998 River Rd, New Hope, PA 18938. Their hours of operations are by appointment for events, and restaurant hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 - 9 pm and Sunday 5 - 8pm. For more information please visit their website at www.centrebridgeinn.com

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

It was this intimate knowledge which would influence his art throughout his life. His evocative paintings and sculptures document the tools and working conditions of the anthracite coal mines of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the modest means and lifestyles of the coal miners' families.

On Saturday, Nov. 10, at 1:00 p.m., Steven Lichak of the WYSO Foundation will give a talk on the eccentric life and innovative works of WYSO at the National Canal Museum to celebrate the exhibition's opening. Family-friendly art activities held in the museum's Welcome Center will also allow children and adults to explore WYSO's artistic techniques. The talk and activities are free as part of museum admission.
Other upcoming events include a book signing and talk by Vince Hydro, author of the Mauch Chunk Switchback, on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3:00 pm and a holiday swag-making workshop with Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor Executive Director Elissa Garofalo on Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1:00-3:30 p.m. The museum's other special exhibition, Powering America: Pennyslvania's Anthracite Railroads, also continues through Dec. 23. This exhibition features a working model railroad platform with a coal mine and patch town as its centerpiece. Powering America and the National Canal Museum's extended opening in November and December this year are generously supported by a grant from the County of Northampton's Hotel Tax Program.. ...Show Less

Even the director admits it, the Christmastime production by students at the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools has gone to the dogs.
Well, Show More...one dog. Abby Nolan, a four-year-old golden retriever-poodle mix, won the walk-on part of Sandy, Annie's rescued four-legged friend, in Annie the Musical, which will delight audiences of all ages for five performances Dec. 7, 8, 14 and 15 at Mitchell Performing Arts Center in Bryn Athyn.
Tickets are $15, $12 for students and children. Purchase online at www.ANCSS.org, by phone at 267.502.4810 or at the door. Use the coupon code "AnnieOpening" at checkout for a $4 discount on each opening night ticket.
"Sarah Gladish, our director and choreographer, found someone who wanted to lend us her dog," says producer Sarah Cooper Waelchli. "So Abby is our real canine cast member, with her own trainer. It's going to make a this a pretty exciting production for the entire cast as well as our audiences."
It's not the first time an animal has played a significant role in an ANCSS show, though the others were students in a role. In 2016 Ava Elder portrayed Snoopy in A Charlie Brown Christmas. And this production's Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks is played by senior Bradley Robinson, who was on stage last spring as Donkey in Shrek the Musical.
"Bradley, who is from Queens and boards at ANC, came here to play basketball, but after he started singing with our social clubs he ended up auditioning for Shrek," says Cooper Waelchli. "He's shifted his focus and is now preparing for college auditions for musical theater."
The show's eponymous star, the adorable red-headed Annie, is played by junior Madison Zagorksi from Willow Grove. Madison was Young Fiona and one of the Blind Mice in Shrek and in 2017 was Lucy in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Bird Woman in Mary Poppins.
While Annie may not seem like a typical holiday stage show, it does take place at Christmas and has the warm, uplifting message that fits the season. It also involves a large number of ANCSS students-50 comprise the cast and chorus alone, with more participating as members of the stage crew.
Annie the Musical is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com. ...Show Less

ARTS ON CAMPUS BRINGS LOU SCHELLENBERG EXHIBIT TO DELAWARE VALLEY UNIVERSITY
Delaware Valley University Life Sciences Building Atrium (Second Floor), 700 E. Butler Ave., Doylestown, PA 18901 (map)
Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.
Tickets:
The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

Writer Philip Roth has written that God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, and then He gave Irving Berlin... "White Christmas."
And what is an American Show More...Christmas if not defined by this exquisite musical poem about friends, family, and fresh white snow enveloping an American neighborhood? It can be convincingly argued that America's fervent embrace of Christmas as more than simply a Christian holiday really does date from Bing Crosby's casual 1942 delivery of this most celebrated and successful of American songs.
In that spirit embracing all faiths, Fred Miller's Lecture-In-Song: AN AMERICAN CHRISTMAS is a celebration for all those in attendance: the mystery and beauty of the ancient carols, inspirational poems, epigrams, quotes, words of wisdom, the cheerful, zesty modern songs of the Christmas and wintertime we all knew as American kids, the magic, the anticipation, the deep reflections on our blessings.
The program is highlighted by a marathon sing-along that reminds us all once again what Christmas continues to mean to us as Americans.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

The National Canal Museum will debut an exhibition of the works of folk artist Frank "WYSO" Wysochansky (1915-1994) on Saturday, November 10 as part of Show More...its participation in the regionwide 250th anniversary celebration of the first documented use of anthracite coal in America.

The exhibition Frank Wyso: The Coal Connection will showcase some of the Blakely, PA native's compelling work depicting the lives of coal miners. Having lost his father in a mining accident, WYSO was familiar with the harsh realities of coal miners' lives, as well as the strong community ties these dangerous conditions fostered. It was this intimate knowledge which would influence his art throughout his life. His evocative paintings and sculptures document the tools and working conditions of the anthracite coal mines of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the modest means and lifestyles of the coal miners' families.

On Saturday, Nov. 10, at 1:00 p.m., Steven Lichak of the WYSO Foundation will give a talk on the eccentric life and innovative works of WYSO at the National Canal Museum to celebrate the exhibition's opening. Family-friendly art activities held in the museum's Welcome Center will also allow children and adults to explore WYSO's artistic techniques. The talk and activities are free as part of museum admission.
Other upcoming events include a book signing and talk by Vince Hydro, author of the Mauch Chunk Switchback, on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3:00 pm and a holiday swag-making workshop with Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor Executive Director Elissa Garofalo on Sunday, Nov. 18 from 1:00-3:30 p.m. The museum's other special exhibition, Powering America: Pennyslvania's Anthracite Railroads, also continues through Dec. 23. This exhibition features a working model railroad platform with a coal mine and patch town as its centerpiece.

Even the director admits it, the Christmastime production by students at the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools has gone to the dogs.
Well, Show More...one dog. Abby Nolan, a four-year-old golden retriever-poodle mix, won the walk-on part of Sandy, Annie's rescued four-legged friend, in Annie the Musical, which will delight audiences of all ages for five performances Dec. 7, 8, 14 and 15 at Mitchell Performing Arts Center in Bryn Athyn.
Tickets are $15, $12 for students and children. Purchase online at www.ANCSS.org, by phone at 267.502.4810 or at the door. Use the coupon code "AnnieOpening" at checkout for a $4 discount on each opening night ticket.
"Sarah Gladish, our director and choreographer, found someone who wanted to lend us her dog," says producer Sarah Cooper Waelchli. "So Abby is our real canine cast member, with her own trainer. It's going to make a this a pretty exciting production for the entire cast as well as our audiences."
It's not the first time an animal has played a significant role in an ANCSS show, though the others were students in a role. In 2016 Ava Elder portrayed Snoopy in A Charlie Brown Christmas. And this production's Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks is played by senior Bradley Robinson, who was on stage last spring as Donkey in Shrek the Musical.
"Bradley, who is from Queens and boards at ANC, came here to play basketball, but after he started singing with our social clubs he ended up auditioning for Shrek," says Cooper Waelchli. "He's shifted his focus and is now preparing for college auditions for musical theater."
The show's eponymous star, the adorable red-headed Annie, is played by junior Madison Zagorksi from Willow Grove. Madison was Young Fiona and one of the Blind Mice in Shrek and in 2017 was Lucy in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Bird Woman in Mary Poppins.
While Annie may not seem like a typical holiday stage show, it does take place at Christmas and has the warm, uplifting message that fits the season. It also involves a large number of ANCSS students-50 comprise the cast and chorus alone, with more participating as members of the stage crew.

Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others.

Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads.

Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.
Tickets:
The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

SMALL BIZ NETWORKING MEETUP ON Tuesday ,
December 18th AT AL FRESCO'S - GUEST Show More...SPEAKER: Gene McAllister!
Flemington, NJ - The Small Biz Networking Meetup has been in existence for over 9 years now, founded by Julie Parker, and consists of over 400 members. The Meetup promotes networking with other local business owners, and helping in acquiring new business and referrals. Members learn from each other, and there is always a special guest speaker, and they meet every 3rd Tuesday of each month, from 12pm-2pm at Al Fresco's Restaurant, at Shoppes of Flemington, NJ (across from Home Goods). Cost is $18 (you get a complete delicious lunch)
The group also provide a large resource table with business cards and flyers and product displays for the members to enjoy, and we always have a guest speaker!
This month, we are happy to announce our own member, We are proud to have Gene McAllister as our Guest Speaker. President & CEO of Investigative Screening Solutions, 800-605-4461, issbackgrounds.com Gene plans to have a very nice presentation on employment background screening. The importance of doing background checks, and the laws and procedures that need to be followed. Gene states:
"I founded my company in 2013 after a 26 year career in police work where I retired as a detective sergeant. During my career I was involved in countless criminal investigations including covert organized crime investigations as well as being assigned to the FBI task force investigating the 9-11 World Trade Center Bombings. Upon retirement I opened my agency originally as a private investigations firm but then started getting many calls to do background checks for employment purposes. I quickly realized that there was a huge market for background screening so I closed my doors, got trained and certified in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (the law that governs background screening) and reopened as Investigative Screening Solutions where my many years of law enforcement gives me expert knowledge with analyzing the confusing maze of criminal and motor vehicle records. Today I use that knowledge to help my clients decipher any criminal records that their employees might have.
We are looking forward to another successful Meetup! If you own a small business, please register and RSVP go to: www.meetup.com/small-biz-networking . Feel free to contact Julie Parker at juliep54@hotmail.com. We welcome you and your colleagues!. ...Show Less

"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

In the midst of the holiday rush, take a moment to experience a relaxing, meditative Reiki Journey into the Winter Solstice. Reconnect with the sun, moon, Show More...and earth energies and listen to the whispers of your soul. We will celebrate the stillness and balance of energies and the coming of the light. What do you want to manifest, reveal, rediscover, expand and bring into the light?
We'll start with deep breaths and tuning in, and I'll begin sharing Reiki with the group. Then I'll come around to share Reiki with each person, and we'll end with a moment of gratitude followed by discussion. During this Reiki Journey, I will be inviting scent, breath, sound, touch and energy to envelope and connect us to all beings and to our amazing earth, creating a comforting space to experience, release or integrate whatever is needed... surrounded by peace, love, healing and serenity
Suggested donation: $10 + As we head into this winter season, I'd like to invite you to bring a can of soup or jar of peanut butter or something non-perishable for donation to the food pantry
Please feel free to bring yoga mats, blankets, pillows, eye masks to use for lying on the floor during the Reiki Journey, or you can sit in one of AWAKEN's comfortable chairs
Reiki Journey is led by Karin of Peacelovehealing Reiki, Stockton NJ. Karin was introduced to the healing and restorative aspects of Reiki over 20 years ago, and knew she needed to learn more and continues to deepen her Reiki practices. Karin has come to understand unconditional love and compassion are the core of our souls, and is what links us to everyone and everything. And she shares that connection to bring peace, love, healing and serenity to animals and people. Karin combines traditional Japanese Reiki with earth-connected customs, Kundalini yoga practices, and sound vibration to create a deeply relaxing and peaceful space during your time together. See Peacelovehealing Reiki on Facebook to find out more. To schedule Reiki sessions for yourself at the Awaken Center, or for your animals at your location, contact Karin - peacelovehealingk@yahoo.com, 908 625 6622
