Artist appreciation and interpretations of our awe-inspiring surroundings, both Show More...natural and man-made. The landscape as a subject for painters has been long standing favorite. For some it is the engaging experience on being surrounded by their muse, for others it is a longing for a distant place while diligently working in a controlled space. Paintings of the space we inhabit and have yet to visit speak volumes to the relationship we have with the greater world, it's humbling while intimate. We are part of something synergistic, a cycle, a constant change. Part of the greatness of capturing a scene is that it is eternally secured, now a moment in time encapsulated and celebrated for others to enjoy beyond that which happened just once. This collection of works give a not only an appreciation for the skill and talents of the artists but an opportunity for the viewers to look through a unique lens at something glorious and yet often taken for granted.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA.

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International.

He was also well known for his work in stained glass.

He was also well known for his work in stained glass.

Highlights from the exhibit include a 1923 film of Grundy Mill workers and operations taken inside the business, and an audio recording of the late Senator Joseph R. Grundy himself. During the evening event, there will be an official unveiling of the Bristol Borough Community Mosaic Project.

"The Forgotten Americans" exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

Artist appreciation and interpretations of our awe-inspiring surroundings, both Show More...natural and man-made. The landscape as a subject for painters has been long standing favorite. For some it is the engaging experience on being surrounded by their muse, for others it is a longing for a distant place while diligently working in a controlled space. Paintings of the space we inhabit and have yet to visit speak volumes to the relationship we have with the greater world, it's humbling while intimate. We are part of something synergistic, a cycle, a constant change. Part of the greatness of capturing a scene is that it is eternally secured, now a moment in time encapsulated and celebrated for others to enjoy beyond that which happened just once.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes.

He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

"The Forgotten Americans" exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

"The Forgotten Americans" exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

Artist appreciation and interpretations of our awe-inspiring surroundings, both Show More...natural and man-made. The landscape as a subject for painters has been long standing favorite. For some it is the engaging experience on being surrounded by their muse, for others it is a longing for a distant place while diligently working in a controlled space.

SoulCollage® Session at Chimayo
Amassing the Inner Harvest
6-7:30pm
$35 (materials included)
We "amass" that which is valuable and substantial Show More...over time- however not necessarily everything is specific to material things. Do you "amass a personal harvest?" Learn to embrace the value in "weeding, waiting, wielding, and even whacking away at" that which you do or do not personally want and increase your bounty of inner guidance and abundance along the way! This session will entail considering your own personal cornucopia of what it takes for you to be a bountiful being: identifying empowerment & joy;
effortlessly letting go when timing is right, just as the trees let go of their leaves; and contemplating what will be held onto and incubated over time, ready to grow and blossom when a new season begins. *
Through guided meditation, creating collage card(s) using select imagery, and posing pertinent questions (that can only be individually answered), participants will contemplate their own cornucopia and amass their own bounty of inner harvest through this card-collage making process! This inspired and creatively card-collage making session is for participants familiar with the process of SoulCollage® as created by Seena Frost.
However, please contact the gallery if you have been unable to attend an introductory session prior to this event, but have an interest in doing so. No artistic skill needed! Recommended that you bring journal!

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes.

He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes.

He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes.

He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

Artist appreciation and interpretations of our awe-inspiring surroundings, both Show More...natural and man-made. The landscape as a subject for painters has been long standing favorite. For some it is the engaging experience on being surrounded by their muse, for others it is a longing for a distant place while diligently working in a controlled space. Paintings of the space we inhabit and have yet to visit speak volumes to the relationship we have with the greater world, it's humbling while intimate. We are part of something synergistic, a cycle, a constant change. Part of the greatness of capturing a scene is that it is eternally secured, now a moment in time encapsulated and celebrated for others to enjoy beyond that which happened just once. This collection of works give a not only an appreciation for the skill and talents of the artists but an opportunity for the viewers to look through a unique lens at something glorious and yet often taken for granted.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

"The Forgotten Americans" exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

"The Forgotten Americans" exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less

"The Forgotten Americans" exhibit featuring the photography of Enrico Dungca, will run from September 15 - December 15, 2017 at the Pearl S. Buck International Show More...Exhibit Gallery located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. Through his portraits Mr. Dungca highlights the plight of Amerasian children born to U.S. servicemen and Filipino mothers. The children have desperately sought acceptance in their home country and legal recognition by the U.S. government, so far without success.
Mr. Dungca writes, "It is now my advocacy to speak for these children left behind. Though the majority of them are now adults, does that mean they will remain neglected? I have big hopes of using my passion in photography to bring light to the plight of these underserved citizens."

Pearl S. Buck International has provided humanitarian aid to Amerasian children since 1965 and continues that work today through the Child Sponsorship Program. The recording artist apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas was one of many impoverished Amerasian children in the Philippines sponsored through Pearl S. Buck International. Apl.de.ap now provides college scholarships to Filipino children through the Pearl S. Buck Foundation - Philippines.
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary. Hours for the exhibit gallery are Monday through Friday 8:30 to 5:00, Saturday 10:30 to 3:00, and Sunday 12:30 to 3:00. The exhibit is made possible by generous funding from Visit Bucks County.

George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made Show More...even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. Equally evocative, however, are his tranquil marines and sunlit landscapes. Sotter was a master at rendering sweeping panoramic vistas of Bucks County's hills, gently rolling under cumulous cloud-filled skies that create dramatic patterns of light and shadow. He was also well known for his work in stained glass. In addition to a significant investigation of Sotter's nocturnal landscapes, Light and Shadow will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked. Chronological and geographic in scope, the exhibition will also provide a regional context for the nocturne theme-the subject with which Sotter is most often recognized-and will include nocturne subjects by many of his Bucks County artistic contemporaries as well as some from further afield.. ...Show Less
