Paintings, Ceramics to Grace Prendergast Gallery

JAMESTOWN – The Prendergast Library Art Gallery will feature “Neighboring Views,” an exhibition of original watercolor paintings by Robin Zefers Clark and handmade stoneware pottery by Elliott Hutten, from Oct.  22 through Nov. 27.

From their properties along County Road 13 near Otto, the artists can actually see each other’s studios over a creek. As neighbors and friends for more than a quarter of a century, they share the same “view” of their rural surroundings, but they approach their preferred mediums of watercolor paint and clay from distinct perspectives.

The artists will welcome the public to an opening reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 22, at the library.

Merge Restaurant to Host Farm Sanctuary Fundraiser: Join the Farmy!

The above is a video of Gloria. Gloria was rescued by Farm Sanctuary, and was a victim of severe neglect. For the first 8 years of her life she lived at a racetrack to calm the horses. She was tied to a wall, with no room to walk, roam, or really move at all, and she had no contact with any animals, other than being able to see them move about, as she remained tied. Gloria didn't know how to be a goat, she had never been allowed to prior to coming home to Farm Sanctuary, and as you can see, she can certainly play now!
