His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

In the midst of the holiday rush, take a moment to experience a relaxing, meditative Reiki Journey into the Winter Solstice. Reconnect with the sun, moon, Show More...and earth energies and listen to the whispers of your soul. We will celebrate the stillness and balance of energies and the coming of the light. What do you want to manifest, reveal, rediscover, expand and bring into the light?
We'll start with deep breaths and tuning in, and I'll begin sharing Reiki with the group. Then I'll come around to share Reiki with each person, and we'll end with a moment of gratitude followed by discussion. During this Reiki Journey, I will be inviting scent, breath, sound, touch and energy to envelope and connect us to all beings and to our amazing earth, creating a comforting space to experience, release or integrate whatever is needed... surrounded by peace, love, healing and serenity
Suggested donation: $10 + As we head into this winter season, I'd like to invite you to bring a can of soup or jar of peanut butter or something non-perishable for donation to the food pantry
Please feel free to bring yoga mats, blankets, pillows, eye masks to use for lying on the floor during the Reiki Journey, or you can sit in one of AWAKEN's comfortable chairs
Reiki Journey is led by Karin of Peacelovehealing Reiki, Stockton NJ. Karin was introduced to the healing and restorative aspects of Reiki over 20 years ago, and knew she needed to learn more and continues to deepen her Reiki practices. Karin has come to understand unconditional love and compassion are the core of our souls, and is what links us to everyone and everything. And she shares that connection to bring peace, love, healing and serenity to animals and people. Karin combines traditional Japanese Reiki with earth-connected customs, Kundalini yoga practices, and sound vibration to create a deeply relaxing and peaceful space during your time together. See Peacelovehealing Reiki on Facebook to find out more. To schedule Reiki sessions for yourself at the Awaken Center, or for your animals at your location, contact Karin - peacelovehealingk@yahoo.com, 908 625 6622

"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

The Show More...practice of Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskaras) honors the change of seasons and is a great way to set new intentions as well as look back at what you accomplished, learned, and grew into the past season. The dedication to do 108 (4 sets of 27) is quite nourishing as each set can be done in honor of your own personal goals, family and friends, community and those all over the world.

ARTS ON CAMPUS BRINGS LOU SCHELLENBERG EXHIBIT TO DELAWARE VALLEY UNIVERSITY
Delaware Valley University Life Sciences Building Atrium (Second Floor), 700 E. Butler Ave., Doylestown, PA 18901 (map)
Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.
Tickets:
The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

Leslie Pontz's work deals with topics such as community, conflict, and growth by applying the vocabulary of textiles to materials not commonly associated Show More...with the medium. Rusted tools find a home with soft woven pieces while metal is crocheted like yarn. These surprising juxtapositions of materials makes categorizing Pontz's work difficult; it is sculpture, it is fabric, it is installation.
Her work also, in many cases, invites participation from its viewers. Whether following a meditative journey proscribed by Pontz in and around her work, or by literally rearranging portions of her sculptural pieces, viewers are both invited to be shaped by Pontz's work and shape it themselves. The story of Pontz's own life, that of her community, and visitors to the Museum will be woven together in the exhibition by participation, conversation, and collaboration.. ...Show Less

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."
