The Buck Hills Arts and Crafts Festival 08

The Buck Hill Art Association in Buck Hill Falls, PA held their 63rd annual Buck Hill Fine Arts and Craft Festival featuring an opening event entitled, “Art Until Dark” on Friday July 25th which proved to be an evening of great elegance dedicated to the memory of Faith Robbins and Joan Foster. The event provided numerous opportunities to meet with many of the new artists and crafters showing their works this year as well as favorites from previous Festivals. The cool summer breezes brought about a transcended pleasure to the conversations as the attendees shared their love for the arts with one another.

Well-known Pocono watercolorist Will Daskal*, Fabric Artist Liz Pemberton*, Photographer and crafter Pat Transue*, Brenda J. Norwick of The Designing Edge who won second place (Blue Ribbon) for her jewelry creations, Artist Ann Ksiaskiewicz, and Ann Dale of Ann Dale Designs were among those who shared their talent along with representatives from Sheralie Designs and Skattered Glass Studios. Guitarist Ted Satterthwaite filled the air with music which enhanced the evening evening elegance even further.

Among the multitude who attended the opening evening to enjoy the wonderful works which were equal to the delightful festive atmosphere were Arline M. Smeltz*, Bambi Tuckey* (whose photographic skills can be discovered at our gallery), and Christine Griffin* of The Buzz Arts Guide and The Shawnee Gallery. The Festival continues until July 27th.
