The Susquehanna – River and Inspiration: This exhibition takes its inspiration from the Susquehanna River, which winds 444 miles from its origins in Cooperstown, New York to its entrance into the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, Maryland. The river has undergone many changes which humans have wrought and its surrounding shores are constantly fascinating to photographers and painters alike. The exhibiting artists are able to address the various changes that humanity has affected all the while evincing the beauty in the river.

North Queen Street

Be Well Lancaster
7 N. Mulberry Street
5 – 8 pm
Creativity with Art, Photography, Word: The concept for a piece is developed like how the artist creates on the easel. Like with pastels, Gabe applies layers that give context to how color and light play to define the canvas. This layering describes depth and complexity. Next, more layering and then coloring and opacity bring character to the concept. And adding if ferment filtering brings emotion to complete the story and to create a painting effect.

Isadore Gallery
228 N Prince Street
5 – 9 pm
Art for Giving: This year Isadore Gallery has extended their holiday exhibition to include October, November and December, featuring artwork by Aaron Brooks, Sherry Barnosky Bowman, Denny Bond, Ron Ettelman, Milt Friedly, Dorothy Frey, Mitch Lyons, David Moss, Sue Reno, Brant Schuller, Yoko Sekino Bove, Charles Swisher, Mariko Swisher, Jeff Wiles, Brian Eppley, Chris Bavaria, John Holmgren, Deborah Sigel, Angela Suehr, Alex Shaprio, Dan Shapiro, Robert Jenkins, Johannes Boland, Mimi Shapiro, Erin Norderman, Juleann Benkoski.

Member Slideshow

The member slideshow will be on Wednesday, 6 November 2013. Some people gave me CDs at the last meeting. If you didn’t, you can still email me the images through 24 October. You can also hand me a CD on the bus trip to NYC on the 25 October if that’s more convenient.

Email your images to me at john@hjsoft.com, and mention “LCC slideshow” in the subject to help me sort through the images.

Thanks.
