Join us on October 6 for our October First Friday Art show entitled Layers. “Layers” is a colorful exhibit of mixed media art by Lisa Stuckey and fabric batik art by Jen Aument. This show depicts the variety of layers in our lives: layers of intention that call us to create, layers of art mediums in which we work, and layers of purposeful relationships that bring us together. Lisa Stuckey is a mixed media artist and instructor. She is a former high school art teacher, and currently teaches workshops and art classes out of her home studio. Lisa received her BAE from Mansfield University and earned her MAE from Millersville University. Inspired by life experiences, her colorful artwork contains layers of various media and techniques involving mono prints, collage, acrylics, gelato sticks, graphite, and inks. Lisa lives and creates along the farmland of Lancaster County with her husband, son, daughter, and two playful dogs. She wishes to inspire the creative spirit in others, and believes everyone is an artist who has something powerful to share with the world. Jen Aument is a batik artist, and has always loved the Arts. Despite a few classes in High School, she is self taught. She has dabbled in all kinds of media. At one point, she had a small mural business and the opportunity to paint and create on a variety of surfaces. Her love for animals and color is what inspires most of her work. Batik art is a method of producing colored designs on textiles by layers of dyeing and color blocking with wax. Every batik is a lesson and a way for her to escape and be creative along the way. She loves bringing emotion to her work and hopes you enjoy it as much as she does. Invite some friends, and join us for Layers.

Friends and fans of the late Jeff Kromer, a local artist known for creating artwork that was a fusion between abstract figurative and surrealism, who come out to see his brother Mark’s exhibition at Mulberry Art Studios this October, will be treated to three pieces of Jeff’s work from Mark’s personal collection. The pieces are done in graphite, the same media in which Mark currently works, and date back to the 90s. These pieces “have had a definite influence on me” says Mark. “It’s only three, but the most important to me.” The nod from one brother to another is especially meaningful within the setting of this particular art exhibit, as it will be hanging on the walls as Mark gets married in the gallery this October. Mark Kromer’s exhibit, Portraits in Solitude, will open with a First Friday Reception from 5pm-9pm on October 6, and will remain on display throughout the month of October. Jeff Kromer’s three graphite drawings will be exhibited alongside this collection. Jeff Kromer graduated with a BFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design and acquired teacher certification from Millersville University. His work belongs in numerous collections and has been exhibited in the United States and Europe. Jeff Kromer showed his work at Mulberry Art Studios multiple times and was always well received. He passed away in October 2014 at the age of 45. Mulberry Art Studios is located in historic downtown Lancaster at 12-21 North Mulberry Street, and holds regular gallery hours on weekdays from 10am until 4pm. For more information and to preview the artwork, please visit www.mulberryartstudios.com.

This ancient monastic service of compline consists of prayers sung and chanted by candlelight by a small ensemble at 9 pm every First Friday. All are welcome, regardless of what you believe or whether you believe at all. The singers are professional and advanced amateurs drawn from the city and surrounding region. The ancient and contemplative mood of this service appeals to a broad cross-section of people. Because the entire service is sung by the ensemble, it allows the listener to bask in the darkness and stillness, awash in ancient music in a glorious acoustic.
