Featured Artists in September

Featured Artists in September
through October 10
Andy & Naomi Brought

Andy was an Indian Valley graduate and his sister Naomi was a graduate from Middletown. They have both been involved in the arts since their grandmother influenced them at an early age. Andy is currently a district forester, while Naomi is an art teacher at Hershey high school. Andy's artwork is often on the abstract side and can be described as colorful yet mysterious. Naomi's artwork has been dreamy and surreal recently with some new paintings influenced from a trip to Alaska.
Pottery workshops 2nd & 4th Saturdays, 10am-noon including a pottery wheel!

New Year's Eve Coffee House

Coffee, tea, soda, mixers, food and snacks will be available for purchase. BYOB. We will also have games to play and music by “Monster $ Money”. They are a 4 man group playing experimental improv. This is instrumental background music, I definitely call it artistic! Kaleo Billet plays drums, Jared Colon plays keyboard, Alek Koone plays guitar and Zach Moser plays bass. We will party from 9pm-1am. There is a $5 cover for the band. We also hope to fill our stairwell with the goals and dreams of those who attend. 2009 can be a year for people to create anything!
