On the 4th Sunday of each month Art on the Edge gathers artists, art enthusiasts and the like together for a themed afternoon in an effort to network, discuss and explore issues that will help participants grow professionally and personally.
The next ART ON THE EDGE meet-up is in St. Marys with Lynda Pontzer at 2pm and then onto Goblin Chocolates at 3pm. Art and chocolate what more could you want ;) http://goblinchocolates.com/
The GOBLIN'S PLEDGE: Our confections are hand crafted by our chocolate artisans with attention to every detail. Our products are made in small batches to ensure freshness and hand packed to maintain our quality standards. When purchasing, we request your email address. This allows the goblin to contact you if unusual weather conditions may affect your order. The Goblin is by nature a solitary creature. He is not in contact with companies that share or sell customer information, and we guarantee that you will only be contacted if we have questions regarding your order. As you can see, we safeguard your chocolates by controlling all possible variables along their journey to you.

Lynda has painted oil and pastel portraits from life since she was a teenager. Her lifelong passion for portraiture led her to Penn State University, Mercyhurst College, Cleveland Institute of Art and the University of Arizona. Upon completion of her Masters in art and history, Lynda worked as an environmental arts teacher outside of New York City and then left to explore Europe and the Far East for a period of years. This included a year of teaching portraiture at the University of Roskilde, Denmark
Lynda now lives in North Western PA, surrounded by the lush game lands of the Allegheny National Forest and state forests. St. Mary's is located in Elk County which is famous for its elk herd. Amid this "land of plenty" Lynda pursues the art of portraiture and painting the local landscape on location. Her studio serves as a workshop for classes in portraiture and landscape painting. The latter is done on location, weather permitting. Class sizes are kept small to better focus on learning.
