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!

Necklace creating in the gallery

A sterling silver rosary wrapped necklace called 'Dancing Queen' :)
I made a copper version a couple of weeks back and needed to make one out of silver after the commission piece for a wedding.
I love these beads!
The fire-polished faceted beads are other worldly, love them!

I can map out versals onto felt with floss and roving... embellishing with semi-precious stones and Czech beads to create an awesome brooch.

adding new work to my ETSY

DSC08986, originally uploaded by mossnbeads.

I have been in the zone since January with inspiration. It seems that everyday I am working on some aspect of my art. Lately more jewelry, fiberart and calligraphy instead of the beadart in the fiber sculptures.
This is a stain glass and pc mixed media pendant. I have done a few of these. I really like the way the light comes through in this shot.
So...look on my ETSY shop for many bits and pieces bouncing in my brain as of late.
