David Lyall Home & Design Artist Fred Swarr & Singer-Songwriter Mike Gordon 241 North Prince Street 5 – 8PM Join us as we explore human emotion and feeling , as it appears as expression, on our faces. Mount Gretna artist Fred Swarr portrays, through his paintings, a visual image of the emotions and feelings that we all show through our facial expressions. Also, join us for acoustic music with Mike Gordon. There are a few things about singer-songwriter Mike Gordon that catch a listener’s attention. His words weave songs about life, truth, and travesty. Off of his recent radio play of The Turnpike Song, Gordon has a proven knack for catchy tunes, and witty words that work on the heart. A native of Lancaster county, his playing style reflects troubadours of Folk, Red Dirt, and the balladeers of the 70s. Mulberry Art Studios 21 North Mulberry Street 5 – 9 PM Continuing Connectivity is the newest collection of dreamy beach scenes to come from painter Teri Edgeworth, and will be on exhibit at Mulberry Art Studios this November. The show opens with a First Friday reception on November 2, and will remain up for the entire month. Regular gallery hours are held on weekdays from 10am until 4pm, with evenings and weekends available by appointment. The title for this exhibit, Continuing Connectivity, grew from Edgeworth’s desire to continue connecting people to her inside views on our waterways and oceans in her work. The pieces are painted in acrylics on deep edge canvas with the painting continuing around the deep edges, allowing the piece to remain open and fluid. The paintings depict serene ocean scenes and lush bayside marshes sprinkled with birds and wildlife to allow the viewer to come in and relax beside her and feel the tranquility nature provides. She hopes reminding us of the beauty of the beaches will inspire our natural instincts to protect our beaches and waterways for future generations. Teri Edgeworth is a frequent exhibitor at Mulberry Art Studios. Since her last show her, she participated in Delaware”s Environmental Resources Program and created an award winning piece in their rain barrel painting contest with a painting depicting a beautiful bayside being littered with fast food trash and debris, titled “What Goes In Must Come Out.” She was honored to receive a award from the Governor of Delaware and the barrel traveled around the state for a year with the final destination the grounds of the Governors mansion. Edgeworth was also chosen as the winner of this year’s cover art contest for the Delaware Wetlands Conference Programs Brochure. Using her artwork as a tool to help preserve the health and beauty of our shores is important to Teri Edgeworth, and her love and dedication to the beaches and waterways is evident in every brushstroke.
