WHAT'S GOING ON IN AND AROUND THE LYNDEN GALLERY?

I confess, mid-winter is not my favorite time of year.  But rather than succumbing to the inevitable blues should too many days pass by without
the sun shining, I thrive in creative pursuits - most notably those in and around the gallery. Planning new exhibitions for the year,
refurbishing vintage chairs with a contemporary flair, or finding reasons to hang out in my kitchen and cook. 

I was privileged to work on a cooperative project last year between Samara, The Center for Individual and Family Growth
and Dauphin County Children and Youth Services.  I was tasked with taking a prior Parol Office and redesigning the space to as
a warm, safe, homelike environment for therapeutic family visitations.  Samara focuses on parenting education based in nuture, building trust,
and ultimately breaking the ongoing generational cycle of abuse in families.  "Participants are empowered and encouraged to bring
awareness and imagination to their daily lives; they begin to experience enthusiasm for their lives and their children...they begin to hope."

2015 is the eighth year Lynden Gallery will present the Kaleidoscope Awards for Fine Arts to exceptional graduating Seniors at
Elizabethtown Area High School, my own alma mater.  A long time dream of mine has been to establish a scholarship fund supporting the arts
in our community, and last year we began accepting donations.  The initial awards have been minimal, and more about recognition, but
the goal is to be able to provide scholarships by 2018.  Please consider reading more about Kaleidoscope and donating to
"Kaleidoscope c/o Lynden Gallery" to help us reach our goal.

I continue to find the kitchen a welcome distraction in life, and enjoy the visual feast, the healthy benefit of eating well, and the
satisfaction of nurturing my own family and friends through food.  I'm a fan of linens and candles even for
a roadside picnic or take out pizza, and I abhor eating on top of trash - atleast put it on a plate!  Sitting down to dinner
doesn't happen every day, but I believe the process, in preparation, serving, and eating, should be celebrated.
And the quickest way to find my grown kids fending their way home is to post fresh baked gingersnaps on Facebook...
