Book Signing and Artist Reception at The Flemish House Art Gallery during Art on the EDGE Artisan Trail Event

This coming weekend, during The Art on the EDGE Artisan Trail event, Stephanie Distler and the Flemish House Art Gallery of Johnsonburg, 600 Market Street on the1st floor of the Historic Johnsonburg
Community Center will be participating for the entire weekend's offering a featured artist in the gallery, a book signing plus, local artists in the gallery and out. Friday 3 to 6:30, Saturday 10am to 5pm and then Sunday 11am to 3pm.
*Local author Robert Ford is available on Saturday 1pm to 5pm for a book signing of his new offering Beagle Tales first on Sunbury Press bestseller list for September.
Sunbury Press has released Pastor Bob Ford's humorous and inspirational compilation of stories entitled "Beagle Tales". The book focuses on beagle ownership, rabbit hunting, faith and family. Ford has been attending book signings all over the region and now we have him in his hometown of Johnsonburg where it all started.
from Sunbury Press's website:
Bob Ford has lived all but three years of his life in the hills of Pennsylvania. The three exilic years were spent attending seminary at The Methodist Theological School in Ohio where he lamented the lack of topography that characterizes the central portion of the Buckeye state. He purchased his first beagle for $75 in 1985 with money earned delivering the Erie Sunday Times. This first beagle committed Ford to the company of hounds, and has resulted in a life that has gone to the dogs.

Bob has hunted rabbits and hare throughout the country, ranging from Northern Alabama to the Quebec border, and he is always looking for new places to hunt and new species of rabbits and hare for his hounds to pursue. He is an ordained pastor in the Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church and currently resides in Clearfield County, PA. Ford believes that American-made, double barrel,16 gauge shotguns from the previous century are the best firearms available to the small game hunter, and that few things compare to the sound of a pack of beagles chasing rabbits.
 Artists and events this weekend:
The Flemish House will be featuring Barbara Redmond Kronenwetter's first artshow 'Flights of Fancy'. Kronenwetter's unique perspective is a breath of fresh air that will delight the viewer. Her show will be on display for October and November.
Kronenwetter is a self-taught, self-representing artist from the area. Kronenwetter was a member of Johnsonburg's Gateway Art League, the League was the beginnings of what we now recognize as the Elk County Council on the Arts. Come and join us for her first showing!
Other artists are on display in and out of the gallery during this weekend trail event, refreshments available.
More information can be found at the gallery owners website the event is also listed on facebook under The Flemish House Art Gallery!
Come join us in the ART!

"Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here
Walker Evans

Press Release

JOHNSONBURG – Documentary photographer Walker Evans said, "Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long."

This quotation is the foundation of the artist statement for “Transient Moments” – a photography exhibition by Katie Weidenboerner. The show will open Nov. 3 at the Flemish House Art Gallery, Market Street, Johnsonburg.

The artist defines "Transient Moments" as the everyday moments defining: where we are, where we have been, and where we are going.

“As quickly as the world comes into place in that moment, it fades away just as quickly. But for that one frame I have a concise vision, realization, or appreciation of the millisecond I am standing in. I hope my audience can grasp something from it also,” Weidenboerner said. “In a world where the idea of time and its effect on our culture are both ever-changing and ambiguous concepts, my relationship with my camera has been a complex obsession.”

The show consists of: 16 hand-framed photographs which have been created over the last two years; a multimedia slideshow of photographs taken by 25 people answering questions about how they see their community changing; and a multi-sensory piece which recounts a journey to an Irish holy well.

“All of these pieces are works that are ever-growing,” Weidenboerner said. “I get up every morning, think about this idea and my photography and say to myself – I need to do this.”

Each photograph has a tone of documentation of the social climate of this region and the effects national and global topics on this region.

“Latent, dynamic, colorful, gray, abstract, straight, soft, aggressive - your world, as well as these photographs, are what you make them,” Weidenboerner said. “Join me to form, reform, or hold strong these images.”

Weidenboerner, 23, is the daughter of Peter and Lucy Weidenboerner. She is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, concentrating in Photography and Women’s Studies.

The artist reception will be held 7 – 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, and artist meet-ups will be held 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1.
