December: 64th Annual Pike County Arts and Crafts Exhibit
Show dates: December 11, 2014 - February 8, 2015
All are invited to the show reception during Milford's "Art After Dark" on Saturday, December 13th from 4-8pm.
"The Spirit of Fellowship" is a collaboration - a gesture of support, born out of the desire to ensure that the popular PCAC annual members show, tradition since 1950, continue unbroken. The ARTery Gallery will exhibit the fine arts and crafts of more than 50 regional artist members of PCAC . The ARTery is a cooperative gallery, owned and operated by it's artists members, since 1999. Many are members of both organizations, so there are close ties and a sense of fellowship that has always existed. Harriet Cotterill was a founding and current member of both organizations and it was her daughter Libby Cotterill, current director of ARTery Gallery, that urged the collaboration to happen.
The usual PCAC July exhibit was cancelled because the Milford Borough Hall was undergoing renovations. The members and surely hundreds who normally turn out to support and enjoy the popular event were disappointed and concerned that the subsequent loss of their space would mean the end of the community arts organization. But alas, the groups classes and demos continue at other locations and the gallery was able to step in to offer its space for its annual show, just in the nick of time (the last month 2014) keeping the 64 year tradition yet unbroken.
The show and reception will be a celebration of the solidarity of the local art community in the spirit of brotherhood that the holiday season brings forth. Lots of great, original handmade crafts will be available for holiday shoppers, including jewelry, pottery, textiles, wood craft, cards, prints and lots of original paintings and photography.
