Origins Ha Ha

A small gathering of art lovers descended the stairs from the streets of Stroudsburg, PA to occupy The Origins Gallery for their Artists' Reception that was held on Saturday August 20th. The pieces populating their Just for Laughs Exhibition brought smiles to those who viewed them along with a smattering of near uproarious laughter which was heard on occasion. The evening included music performed by Michael Kessler and the venue's famous Art Raffle.

After spending some time being amused by the images presented, the Gallery's director, Jody Singer, greeted the intimate gathering and proceeded to share news of upcoming events at the gallery as well as those occurring throughout the town of Stroudsburg itself. Mr. Singer's words were followed by the appearance of Mr. Kessler whose renditions of light hearted compositions brought a smile to some, laughter to others, and raised eyebrows to all.

The art raffle followed the performance. Eyes were affixed to the tickets purchased earlier as the winning numbers were being called out. Joyous exclamations were sounded as the coveted items were acquired by the lucky participants. It was soon after this did the company begin to share their farewells to one another as they set their sights upon the next exhibit to greet them.
