Her current works are editioned digital prints on demand. These prints are based on her photographs from around the world. She has traveled extensively including such destinations as Italy, Greece, Egypt, Israel, Turkey, The Netherlands, and France, as well as within the United States. In 2008, she visited Morocco as part of a Fulbright Group Project. Last year she spent a month in Florence— resulting in her fifth photography book.

Join us for Love and Serve; a photo exhibit from the lens of Haley Adair. “Love and Serve” is a portrait of the Dominican Republic and the little ones that have made an impact on my life. It shows innocence and pure love that extends far beyond language or culture barriers. Haley is a 21 year old artist and photographer from Manheim, PA. She is currently living in Philadelphia and pursuing a BFA in photography at Tyler School of Art – Temple University. Haley has a passion for using her artistic talents to help others, and capturing the beauty that comes from giving. So come out, engage the art and artist, grab some hot drinks and snacks, and learn what it means to love and serve.

The Parrot Gallery
328 West Orange Street

Artist Chris Hoover Seidel’s eclectic artwork reveals how she has deconstructed and reconstructed her own faith journey over the past decade. Ranging from photography and painting to sculptural collage, her work “uses nothing new” in order to reflect a central premise—all that we are seeking is already inside of us in the form of the Divine. Seidel’s art honors her experiences and marks significant Divine encounters.
