Artists rally to Pember First Fridays

M ore than 25 artists will be featured at this month’s First Friday at the Pember Library and Museum. Organizers of the Nov.2 event describe it as “a retrospective and celebration of the many artists who have shown their work with us over the last two years.”

Bo Young, a member of the library board of trustees, said Dave and Kathy Juckett are the main players behind the organization of this special First Friday. Both will be featured at the event. Kathy will have scarves and other work on display, and Dave will have a working lathe and will be doing special turnings that will be offered for sale to support the Pember, according to a press release.

Steve Sanford, an award-winning decoy artist, will show a 13-inch-tall upland sandpiper painted in acrylic on basswood, which he carved for the show.

Other local artists involved with the show will include Don Taylor, Dave Gilchrest, Carolyn Kibbe, Mason Hurley, Robert Sydorovich, Ginny Sword, Lynne Knobel, Raymond Kwiatkoski, Adriano Manocchia, Beth Kashner, Hannie Varosy, Gyula Varosy and more. Each artist will donate at least one piece to be put on sale to benefit the Pember.

Ali Sherman, from H.N. Williams Country Store in Dorset, will bring exquisite culinary artistry to the event.

The Bear Strings, an ensemble of mandolin, fiddle, concertina and hammer dulcimer, will provide music for the evening.

Across the footpath from the Pember will be a night of art and community at the newly restored and recently landscaped Slate Valley Museum. Among other art will be the work of Alyssha Csük, which consists of abstract photography of local slate. First Friday is free and open to the public at both locations.
