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.
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. You
