"My fascination with painting the figure in natural settings has never waned. It is the human story on
God's stage. Nothing seems more important when Show More...we are appreciating it. 'Red Shale Pool' is the
story of my son at a particular stage in his life and in our relationship. It's a beautiful relationship; it

dynamically painted, with bold and artificial blues and greens, while "Rocks" is naturalistic,
balanced, and stoic. Describing "Red Shale Pool," Harrington writes, "My high school English
teacher emphasized the idea that our individual stories were worth writing about. It's hard to
understand that when you're young and seemingly unimportant, yet as we gain worldly experience
we realize how special our stories truly are." - (from Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, 2014). ...Show Less

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00
Saturday 10:30 to 3:00
Sunday 12:30 to 3:00
Admission to the Exhibit Gallery is complimentary.

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00

"My fascination with painting the figure in natural settings has never waned. It is the human story on

teacher emphasized the idea that our individual stories were worth writing about. It's hard to

we realize how special our stories truly are." - (from Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, 2014). ...Show Less

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00

immigrant success story, George M. Cohan. An all-enveloping sensation of "being there" will
take you back to sparse and meager times of struggle and triumph. With this production, Bucks
County's own Broadway Producer, Howard Perloff, inaugurates a three-production series as part

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00

Celebrate summer with "An Evening in the Cloister" on Friday, June 2, 6-9:00pm at Glencairn Museum, enjoying the medieval-styled cloister garden, light Show More...fare and the music of world-class guitarist Blane Bostock.
Tickets for this limited-admission event are on sale through May 30: $20, $15 for Museum members, $10 for designated drivers; must be 21 to attend.
Guests will also have access to the visual and aural delights of the LED-lit, newly restored fountain on the North terrace and smaller cloister fountain, the first-floor Museum collections in the Great Hall and Upper Hall, and the much-coveted views from the tower as evening falls.
Throughout the evening Bostock will offer guitar selections from a variety of styles. The Bryn Athyn resident has studied with such luminaries as Dennis Sandole, author of Guitar Lore and teacher of John Coltrane, George Benson and Pat Martino. Over the years, he's played in small groups, big bands, jazz ensembles and rock, soul, disco and country bands. He appeared as a soloist with Latin legend Johnny Pacheco at the Allentown Symphony and Annenberg Center in "A Night of Latin Classics," featuring arrangements commissioned for the concert from artists like Reuben Gonzales and Bebo Valdes.
Glencairn, former home to the Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn family, has its own cloister that replicates in smaller scale the serene covered colonnades and open quadrangles attached to European cathedrals, monasteries and convents to provide protected walkways for the religious orders living there.
The Pitcairns chose an avian theme for the stone work in the cloister, and visitors will find a variety of birds carved into the capitals of the supporting columns. The tranquil setting also features white-themed gardens laid out by award-winning designer Danielle Odhner, who created and maintains the gardens at Bryn Athyn Cathedral as well as Glencairn.. ...Show Less

With an unparalleled performance, The American RUSH Tribute Lotus Land brings the force of live Rush
to life on stage. Enjoyed by die-hard Rush fans, Show More...musicians and casual music listeners alike, the Lotus
Land experience has been heralded as the ultimate celebration of RUSH's musical craftsmanship and
spirited performances. With the true set up and sound of the Canadian power trio, Lotus Land delivers the
thrill that people expect when they see Rush in concert. Their performances have wowed sold-out houses
in New England's premiere concert venues and casinos and their fan-base continues to grow nationally
and internationally. From as far south as the Hard Rock Café in Panama City, Panama & back to back
nights at the Hardrock Café in the Dominican Republic, to as far north as Toronto Canada where the band
was honored in performing for the largest international RUSH fan event, RUSHCON, in 2012 & 2014.
Lotus Land has also dotted up the eastern seaboard of the United States playing shows in Virginia,
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont and Connecticut.

Other highlights have been with playing with accomplished violinist Gerardo Hilera (Clockwork Angels -
Tour) on multiple occasions in the New England area. Lotus Land has had the honor of being introduced
on two occasions by RUSH Icon Donna Halper. (www.donnahalper.com)

Each of the Lotus Land band members - Chris Nelson, Bob Chartrand and Mark Dalton - has had their
share of notable gigs during their musical careers. Nelson has been the guitarist for Herb Reed and the
Platters since 1994 and has played with such performers as DD Martin, Anthony Vitti, The Drifters, The
Coasters and Jon Finn. Chartrand and Dalton teamed up early on for two ventures, The Lye and Shiny
Green Flies. Together with those bands they enjoyed sharing the stage with such big names as ELO II and
The Alarm. These seasoned musicians don't take the task of recreating Rush's music lightly. Says Lotus
Land drummer, Dalton, "In this band, we take great pride in being a three piece band whose performance,
we feel, will please even the most fanatical Rush fan. In a nutshell, we strive to be the closest thing
musically to Rush that anyone has yet heard. When all is said and done, we hope to bring you the music
of Rush with a live sound as big and true to form as can be heard anywhere.". ...Show Less

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

The 8th annual Environmental Film Festival will include two short films and one feature film as well as a question and answer period with the feature Show More...film director, Jared Flesher. Jared is an award-winning reporter, photojournalist, and documentary filmmaker. He has directed three documentary films that have screened at film festivals around the world: The Farmer and the Horse, Sourlands, and Field Biologist. Jared is also the director of the documentary web series The Creature Show.


The feature film, Field Biologist, is the story of 22-year-old Tyler Christensen, a talented but underemployed high school graduate from New Jersey still trying to figure out what to do with his life. Tyler's great love is being outside, chasing birds, and studying wildlife. One day he decides to drop everything and travel to Costa Rica to start doing his own conservation-oriented research on birds in the tropics. Tyler's adventure takes him from the cloud forests of Monteverde to the mangrove swamps of the Nicoya Peninsula, culminating in a plan to try to help save the highly endangered mangrove hummingbird. The film presents the major challenges facing biodiversity on Earth-climate change and habitat destruction chief among them-while also raising some fundamental questions: What makes someone a scientist? How important is a formal education? What risks are worth taking? What should you do with your life?


The two short independent films of the night are Brilliant Darkness and Trees. Brilliant Darkness; was directed and written by Emily V. Driscoll. This beautiful film explores the importance of darkness, and the erosion of it, through the study and preservation of firefly habitats in Japan and the U.S. The second film; Trees, is a comic animated warning about the devastating effects of clear cutting by director Randy Wakerlin.


The films will be shown in Schiff's Woodbadge Lodge, which is transformed into a woodland theater each year for this special event. Festival attendees may choose to walk from the Nature Center at 339 Pleasant Valley Road in Mendham along marked trails to the theater location, which is a gentle two-mile, or 20-minute, hike or take one of two complementary hay rides leaving from the Nature Center starting at 6 pm and again at 6:30pm. Starting at 6 pm filmgoers are invited to join us for light dinner fare, enjoyed al fresco on our picnic tables available for a (suggested) donation. Movie snacks & drinks will also be available at movie time. For those who might like additional conversation and community, coffee, and dessert will be enjoyed by the firepit at the conclusion of the evening.


This event has been generously sponsored by the following organizations and businesses; The Willow School of Gladstone, Mammoth Tree of Long Valley, Jockey Hollow Dentistry of Mendham, Mikula Web Solutions, Headquarters Financial Group of Morristown, Shoprite of Chester, Sunrise Milk of Clinton, Cheech's Own Coffee Company of Somerville, and Black River Roaster of Whitehouse.

McCoole's Arts & Events Place will present "The Ghost Army Event," celebrating the top-secret WWII deception unit that duped the Nazis, Saturday, June Show More...3, from 6 - 9 pm and Sunday, June 4, from 2 - 5 pm.
Each day's events include a screening of the award-winning PBS documentary The Ghost Army, a chance to meet veterans of the unit, and a Ghost Army exhibit that features a life-size inflatable Sherman tank.
The Ghost Army was officially known as the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops. From June 1944 to March 1945, it staged 20 battlefield deceptions, beginning in Normandy and ending along the Rhine River. The deceivers employed hundreds of inflatables (tanks, trucks, jeeps, airplanes), sound trucks, phony radio transmissions and even playacting to fool the enemy. Their brilliant deceptions saved thousands of lives.
Among those appearing will be Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles, authors of the New York Times best seller The Ghost Army of World War II. (There will be a book signing each day.) Ghost Army veterans Bernie Mason (from Philadelphia) and John Jarvie (from Kearny New Jersey), both of whom are featured in the film and book, will answer questions after the screenings. Other special guests are also expected.
This event honors Ghost Army veteran John Kennedy, who was from Quakertown. It is the brainchild of his daughter, Lynn Kennedy, who will also be in attendance. It is being presented with the generous support of the Quakertown Historical Society and McCoole's Arts & Events.
Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for senior admission. A cash bar will be available. For tickets and more information, please visit www.mccoolesredlioninn.com

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00
Saturday 10:30 to 3:00

McCoole's Arts & Events Place will present "The Ghost Army Event," celebrating the top-secret WWII deception unit that duped the Nazis, Saturday, June Show More...3, from 6 - 9 pm and Sunday, June 4, from 2 - 5 pm.
Each day's events include a screening of the award-winning PBS documentary The Ghost Army, a chance to meet veterans of the unit, and a Ghost Army exhibit that features a life-size inflatable Sherman tank.
The Ghost Army was officially known as the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops. From June 1944 to March 1945, it staged 20 battlefield deceptions, beginning in Normandy and ending along the Rhine River. The deceivers employed hundreds of inflatables (tanks, trucks, jeeps, airplanes), sound trucks, phony radio transmissions and even playacting to fool the enemy. Their brilliant deceptions saved thousands of lives.
Among those appearing will be Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles, authors of the New York Times best seller The Ghost Army of World War II. (There will be a book signing each day.) Ghost Army veterans Bernie Mason (from Philadelphia) and John Jarvie (from Kearny New Jersey), both of whom are featured in the film and book, will answer questions after the screenings. Other special guests are also expected.
This event honors Ghost Army veteran John Kennedy, who was from Quakertown. It is the brainchild of his daughter, Lynn Kennedy, who will also be in attendance. It is being presented with the generous support of the Quakertown Historical Society and McCoole's Arts & Events.
Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for senior admission. A cash bar will be available. For tickets and more information, please visit www.mccoolesredlioninn.com
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Ghost Army Legacy Project, which is lobbying Congress to award a Congressional Gold Medal to the unit.

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00
Saturday 10:30 to 3:00
Sunday 12:30 to 3:00

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and Show More...her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.
Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.
Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.

Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00
