Book Signing with Local Author
Robert F. Lackey is thrilled to share his just released book, Kingdoms of the Marsh, the 4th book in his local historical fiction book series about the Pulaski Family. All four books in the series will be available.
Sarah Baptist, Painter
Sarah is an urban landscape oil painter, who enjoys plein air painting. Born and raised in Clarion, PA., her father was an artist and art history professor who exposed Sarah to great art, museums as well as drawing and painting.
At age 13, Sarah fell in love with theater while building sets for a summer theater program. Years later, Sarah chose set design as a career because she loved creating the illusion of another world on the stage. That morphed into painting scenery for theater, opera and specialty events for 20+ years from Maine to Wisconsin to New Hampshire and finally Delaware.
When Sarah suddenly lost her scenic painting job in December 2013, she returned to her roots and what she loved most. ART.
She has been painting full time since April 2014. Now she creates worlds with oil on panels rather than the stage! Sarah is a self-taught artist. She has shown her work in numerous galleries in the area and has won a number of awards.
Carole Fox, Ceramicist
As a young girl,Carole attended a summer Girl Scout camp where she had the opportunity to dig clay from the banks of a creek bed and process it through to a finished, glazed piece. It was an incredible experience. She has always loved making things and dabbled in clay here and there, when she could. In 1988, Carole took a pottery class at Abington Arts Center in Philadelphia and suddenly, there was no turning back.
She studied ceramics at the University of Delaware and The Clay Studio in Philadelphia as well as taking classes and workshops on different aspects of the art. Carole’s current focus is on porcelain and stoneware pottery. Most of her work is made on a potter’s wheel, though she enjoy handbuilding as well.
Selling her work since 1998, in galleries- locally, and across the eastern US, Carole also maintains a small showroom at her home studio in Elkton, Maryland. She teach pottery classes at the Delaware Art Museum and for the City of Newark, to children and adults.
Carole enjoys experimenting with clay and finds that each new venue explored leads to many others. For her, clay is exciting, sensual, expressive and alive. She loves to touch it and form it and see it become something right before her eyes. The possibilities are endless.
