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 www.stephaniedistler.com the event is also listed on facebook under The Flemish House Art Gallery!
Come join us in the ART!

The Market was a Grand Success!!!!

Holiday Market 0725, originally uploaded by mossnbeads.

The first Holiday Market in the Historic Johnsonburg Community Center was full of energy with the different flow brought to them by the artists, historians and culinary experiences. This is a formula that is perfect for the building and the town with the 'Community House' having it all.

Pictured above is Colton Delong with his 'live art' piece featuring his ever flowing random styling paired with a designer sense of color, texture and movement.

Plan to have your lunch on Saturday at the Historic Johnsonburg Community Center and help out the French Club, too.

    Two foreign exchange students will be present at the community center on Saturday to talk about their country and culture.
