We are pleased to welcome Susan Harris and her art exhibit, titled “Life Patterns”. Harris’s display will feature abstract watercolor paintings. The exhibit will be on view from Friday, June 10 through Tuesday, July 5. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, June 11 from 4 to 6 pm.
“My passion for color and pattern is at the center of my work. There are an endless number of patterns to create and I’ve been painting them in watercolor for many years,” Harris said of her chosen style and medium. “I also have a great interest in buildings, which are the subject of many of my watercolor collages.”
“There is such great pleasure and excitement in creating art,” Harris summed up.
We are pleased to welcome Nicole Alger and her art exhibit, titled “Animal, Vegetable, Mineral”. Alger’s display will feature inspiring realist paintings on canvas, wood and other materials. The exhibit will be on view Friday, July 8 through Monday, August 8. An opening reception will be held on Friday, July 8 from 5 to 7 pm.
For Alger, painting is a way for her to connect with her ancestors and her family’s past. “Cultivating a relationship with our ancestors is an ancient practice that was woven into daily life long before my forebears arrived on these shores,” she said. “Sustenance meant more than animal, vegetable and mineral. A connection to the past was as invaluable as food. The rituals that mark the passage of human life were the very threads of our cultural fabric.”
We are looking forward to hosting our annual FUNraiser on Sunday, July 10, beginning at 5:30 pm.

Performance will happen rain or shine. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Picnics are welcome. A cocktail reception will follow the performance for select ticket levels, available in four tiers from $15 to $250. Pre-registration is required; tickets will not be sold at the door.
Tickets can be purchased here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
We are delighted to host the band Widely Grown for a concert on Sunday, August 14 from 3 to 5 pm.
Widely Grown is a relatively new band on the music scene, having formed out of a year of life on the road. Band lead James Calleo had been performing as a solo musician when he set out on his travels. The band’s music is the inevitable sound that culminates from living a year without a permanent home. Traveling across the country with his wife and dog in a tiny Subaru, Calleo spent 2020 camping in the Appalachian Mountains, spending starry nights in Bighorn National Forest and swimming in the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest.
"Our style is a little folk, a little country, a little rock n roll," said Calleo. "When people compare us, they use vibes like, rather than sounds like, which is cool. They've said Wood Brothers. Grateful Dead. Lumineers. I guess it depends on the day!"
