'Beinn Dorain from Beinn Odhar'

If you’re reading this and you are the gentleman from Pennsylvania who visited my studio about a week ago …then, ‘hello’ and thanks.  I think you said you live about an hour and a half drive from The Green Drake Gallery and Arts Centre in  Millheim ….and so for you and anyone living in the region …here are a few details about their current exhibition ‘A Taste of Scotland’ and other events at the gallery and town.  As I’m so busy at the moment I’m going to cheat with this blog  and instead of typing out all the details I’m simply pasting an email I received from Karl Leitzel at the gallery:


Hi everyone,

The Centre County Grange Fair is coming to an end today, so summer must be nearly over! We hope you’ve been having a good one.

We’re busy hanging our September special show, “A Taste of Scotland”, featuring additional work by all three of the Scottish artists we represent – Margaret Evans, Ken Bushe, and Keith Salmon. You’ll love these three different approaches to the Scottish landscape. Our show reception is NOT the usual first Friday, but instead will be Friday Sept. 16 from6-9 pmso that Margaret Evans, who will be here that week teaching a workshop, can be with us. The band Celtica will be providing – you guessed it – Celtic music that evening on our stage! And that same week, the Elk Creek Cafe is tying into the theme on Thursday evening with music by “Smash the Windows”, featuring Bruce Young, Peggy Shutes, and Patty Lambert playing Irish (close enough!) and New England jigs and reel as well as waltzes for your dancing pleasure. Our show will, however, be up for the full month of September.

We are also planning to soon start offering live music on our stage more often on Friday evenings starting at 7:30. More on that soon.

Speaking of Margaret Evans, there is still room in her two-day pastel workshop September 16 and 17. If you work in pastels and would like to spend a delightful two days in scenic Penns Valley working with a premiere instructor, please see our web site (link below) for more information. We also have listings for additional fall classes. If you’ve been wanting to learn a new art medium or pick up where you left off at some time in the past, now is the time!

Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend, and come on out to the big Crickfest celebration at the Coburn Park this Sunday if you can! Lots of food, music, and eco-friendly information and activities. And, of course, the Green Drake will be open our usual 12-4 on Sunday, so stop in and see us if you’re in the area.

Anyway, I hope you can get along to see the exhibition and enjoy some of the events taking place in and around Millheim.  Can I ask you and anyone living in or having a connection to the area, to spread the word.  Thank you.
