"Chickaree Union Church at Night"
by Jennifer Baker

Jennifer Baker’s paintings and monoprints explore a sense of place and the history and memory of its inhabitants. From Jennifer’s 30 year project of documenting the changes in her Philadelphia neighborhood of Northern Liberties, to her images of a long-burning mine fire in Centralia, PA, and her recent explorations in western Pennsylvania made during an exhibition at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Loretto, PA, she has chronicled the human effects of irrevocable change on landscape and streetscape.

Carol McGarvey and Sharon Morse are the co-owners and artistic creators of Beauty and the Beads Jewelry. They began 15 years ago by taking courses and working in many different jewelry techniques like bead embroidery, stamping, bead crochet, stringing, and metalsmithing. Sharon and Carol work individually on their creations but their designs complement each other’s work. Their business has been successful because of their stylistic differences and color preferences.
 
They were introduced to the art of Kumihimo braiding in 2012.  Since that time, they have researched and pursued the mastery of this intricate technique which is the ancient art of Japanese braiding dating back to 800 BC. It was originally woven with silks and other fibers by the Samurai.  Both are Members of the American Kumihimo Society and have taken courses with the most famous Japanese-American Kumihimo master, Makiko Tada.
