Community Gallery - Eric Markievich
May 3 - May 26, 2019

I enjoy experimenting with medium, and letting the work take on an altered direction from the original idea inception, letting it grow within the creative process.

Photography Gallery - Dan Weiss
Show title - Solstice
May 3 - May 26, 2019

Talvipaivanseisaus is Finnish for winter solstice. This series of photographs was taken during the week of Talvipaivanseisaus, on the banks of the River Aura in Turku, at the Christmas Market in Helsinki, and on the island of Suomenlinna.

Pottery Gallery - Linda Hale
May 3 - May 26, 2019

My first journey into hand building with clay quickly led to incorporating other materials with the sculpture. Clay, as a natural substance combined with man-made objects reflects the interface we have with nature and our existence. I especially enjoy adding "found" objects that have been cast aside but also reflect another era and the touch of our predecessors.

Print Gallery - Brenda Horner & Dave Hammaker
May 3 - June 30, 2019

Brenda - My work has been shaped out of a love of nature and developed through an intuitive gift for capturing nature's ordinary moments.

Dave - Dave has been creating images of our natural world for over 40 years. His photographic subjects have ranged from the wilds of Patagonia to the baron tundra of the Artic to the lush forests of Pennsylvania and to the ancient civilizations of China.

Sieg Gallery - Alecks Cooper
May 3 - May 26, 2019

"Painting has showed me the door to value myself and my emotions. I see it to be the perfect talk to keep my thought, fears and doubt, in my head, at bay. I've always been able to make something out of nothing. My art is the expression of words in which I cannot say via my mouth alone."

Cool Beans - Kim Gates Flick & Mary Vollero
May 3 - June 30, 2019

Mary - This series of photographs were taken in and around Harriet M. Rosenberg's home, just after Harriet passed away in January.

Kim Gates Flick - Kim loves sharing her passion for creativity. She promotes and demonstrated sustainable studio practices, eco-friendly products and artistic environmental projects.

24/7 Display Window - Tom Seay
April 5 - May 26, 2019

This installation represents the devastation the Emerald Ash Borer has done to Ash trees

throughout North America. Using forms as totems of this environmental issue, artist Thomas Seay, hopes to raise awareness and encourage others to become actively engaged with the environment in which they live.

The 24/7 Display Window is a unique visual art experience viewed from outside the building 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
