Madeline Link

At the age of 18, Madeline Rose Link has already compiled a list of accomplishments that would be the envy of someone twice her age: Honors student from elementary through high school World traveler (England, Spain, China, Africa, Canada) Professional musician Model UN participant for four years Participant in the University of Notre Dame’s Pre-College Leadership Seminar F... »

Dan Getz

Dan Getz

When he first learned of the Banana Factory Arts and Education Center and its glass studio, it was only a matter of time before Dan Getz found his way to the Lehigh Valley to live and work here. A Maryland native, Getz first set foot in the Valley when he was hired to assist with creation and installation of The Four Elements sculpture at the Musikfest Café. Now he is the ... »

Bob McLeod

Bob McLeod

Every town seems to have a comic book store, and every citizen seems to have wondered, at one point or another, how it manages to stay in business, seemingly immune to economic hardship and digital migration. (Somewhat easily, as it turns out: comic book and graphic novel sales hit a staggering $935 million in 2014, a 20-year high for the industry.) Many years later, he wo... »

Justin Klement – Enviousart

“People thought I was crazy,” recalls Justin Klement, but the Whitehall-based artist has never let people’s opinions dictate his life. When some people picture a college football player, they might imagine a genetically gifted young man more concerned with practice and afterparties than going to class. When they imagine a college art major, they might imagine someone dress... »

She earned her BFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadel... »

Max Meano

Max Meano

  The English language is filled with apparent contradictions – phrases such as “alone in a crowd,” “jumbo shrimp,” “open secret” and (thanks to George Carlin) “military intelligence.” Until recently, I would have included “graffiti artist” on that list – until I had a chance to talk with Max Meano, who specializes in that genre. Max’s medium of expression is spray pa... »

A Tribute To Saint Nicholas

A Tribute To Saint Nicholas

In Memory of Charles H. “Bud” Berge, the official St. Nicholas of Christkindlmarkt When Christmastime comes around each year, I think back to my fond childhood memories. Gathering with my family under the Christmas tree sharing presents. Baking homemade cookies with my mother in the kitchen. Watching Rankin/Bass cartoons on television. But the one that stands out among the... »

Indiemade Craft Market A Celebration of Handmade Art

Indiemade Craft Market A Celebration of Handmade Art

No matter which winter holidays you celebrate, exchanging gifts is part of the traditions. But if your recipient’s taste is apart from the mainstream, shopping can be tough. You’ll often find shelves loaded with mass-produced merchandise that essentially copies-and-pastes itself. There’s a better approach – the eighth annual Indiemade Craft Market (ICM) on December 5. This... »

Pennsylvania Youth Theatre

Pennsylvania Youth Theatre

The phrase “Pennsylvania Youth Theatre” might prompt mental images of ramshackle sets, homemade costumes, and a cast of awkward kids stumbling around on stage. But you’d be absolutely wrong on all counts. PYT is actually a regional performing-arts school. Thousands of children have studied drama, music and dance during its 30-year history and – with help from professional ... »

Brick + Mortar: Art Gallery Design Studio
