If you have an opportunity to check out the new exhibit at Water Gallery in Lansdale, PA, head over on Friday March 18th, 5-9 pm or Friday April 1st, 2011, 5-9 pm, for two special openings. Tomorrow’s opening features Bette Conway’s modern celtic and contemporary jewelry as well as the special treat of the artist playing Irish Fiddle.
Friday April 1st focuses on Suzanne Halstead, my good friend, and one of the first people to nuture my love of making art! Pastels that are reproduced in her book, cowritten with Wanda Schwandt, Drawing Nearer: Devotional Workbook of Creative Prayer, will be on display in all their live vibrancy. There will be refreshments, a book signing, and music by her talented son Joel Halstead. Suzanne has graciously agreed to let me interview her about the exhibit, so look for a future post featuring her work.
EDITED: Sadly, Water Gallery is no longer at this location.
