A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S.

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.

City dwellers seeking alternatives to the hustle and bustle have been drawn to the quiet and picturesque location for many years. The area houses some of the most outstanding galleries for art collectors and enthusiasts to enjoy. The Stover Mill Gallery, along the Delaware River in Erwinna has been featuring the art of local artists ...READ MORE since 1959 and has featured many strong shows over the years. Next month's solo exhibition featuring minimalistic landscape painter, Kristine Keating, is no exception. Keating's work has almost an esoteric feel due to its dark tones, deep texture and her focus on shadow and light. This upcoming show titled "Inner Integration" is a great example of her popular 'Shadowlands' series that can only be fully appreciated in person, as the subtle qualities of her paintings are lost in reproduction. The artist reception is on April 1 from 1-5 pm. The refreshments include fresh pressed juices, raw gourmet cheeses and vegan desserts. Free N/A 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.
