Vessels of Peace: Opening reception

Vessels of Peace: photographs, drawings and paintings by Nanette Hatzes of Gettysburg, PA.

'This recent work is Hatzes' response to the current horrors taking place in the Middle East and elsewhere. As a counter to the damaging effects of images of violence and devastation on our collective psyches, Hatzes offers up each drawing, photograph, and painting as a meditation and a visual prayer. Images of women are at the center of this exhibition, as women are the ones who suffer most, and are expected to care for those who suffer. Our vessels may be fragile—but we are strong. 

Opening reception: Friday, April 3rd from 6-9 p.m. 
Featuring live jazz group Ken Jankura and Joe Dennison

The show runs through May 31, 2015

Miracle on 34th Street in Hampden

The lights on 34th street are an explosion of sculpture, characters, movement, and lights, of course.  For the last 20 years this block in Hampden strings lights across and fills their houses with unique Holiday spirit.  If you buy a house on this block... you will participate, right!  So much fun to watch the lights come on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  Santa will be there.  The lights continue each night through the season.  New Years has a unique celebration on 34th, complete with the falling ball and baby new year.  Join us any night of the season.  Park easily and walk to 34th st.  Many will invite you up to their porch or inside to see way cool art... Jim Pollock.  Look for the hubcap tree and the crab sleigh... snowflakes... lights!  

Hang out in Hampden for the Holidays!
