New Beginings!

As we move forth into a new year; I love the opportunity for change and new beginnings, that second chance on life!

We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Harrison Ford

Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Norman Vincent Peale

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Victor Frankl

Works of Art:
Hand Blown Glass by Wayne Fitzpatrick! Also a stunning vintage pendant recently added to our collection.
One of a kind treasures, I love the little flowers in the glass, unbelievable!
(My photography doesn’t do them justice!)

May the Lord bless this New Year!

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When I get so hurried with life and the emergencies of the day, I forget what really matters!
I am one of those people who need that quiet time each day to refresh my soul.
Emerson’s quote is just the perfect reminder for me today!

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Artist: Laura Sullivan

Thought of the Day:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-- Marianne Williamson

What a great experience!

I would like to thank all who made the Art 21 Night a successful event.
I am truly blessed with such great new friends here at the gallery.
My first event was a cozy night, about 15 people attended. The series is phenomenal. The PBS documentary is a well made film about artists; a glimpse of insight into their lives and work.
I have been asked to do a monthly event and I am real excited about doing one. After we complete this Art21, we will be viewing other great documentaries about artists!
The Art21 Video Night
If anyone is interested in coming to the gallery; enjoying the art documentary with us(there is four parts)?
I will have sign-ups at the gallery or you can leave us a message here on our web site for me. It would be helpful for buying the events refreshments.

The past Harvest Festival here in Honesdale was great fun! I now know what I should do for next year. Again, I have a great team working for me. I appreciate all your support and help!! Thank you!

Rachel Gorman

Original Works by Rachel Gorman
Titled “Little Boy” 14” x 14” $325.00
Titled “Couple” 14” x 14” $325.00

The Artist Statement:
This series was based on trying to capture the impossible. The ghostly images represent the memories that once were. Through special techniques, I was able to capture the nostalgic feeling of past reminiscences.
This series of photographs began by shooting the environments; these were then printed in the darkroom and scanned into the computer. They were digitally altered and the figures were added. These pictures were then printed out on regular typing paper which was then brought back into the darkroom and used as paper negatives. The photographs on this disc are the negatives that were used to create the actual photographic prints. The photographs printed in this manner create a unique texture within the photograph. The prints that will be exhibited show these unique, weathered textures

Benard Mangiaracina

Artist Benard Mangiaracina
Brick School Lilies
Oil on Canvas 16x20 $1,000.00

A fond fairwell to the Professor; Benard Mangiaracina.
Best wishes and good luck with your new endeavor.
