Description

Community Arts Center and LandArt Events Farm-to-Table Plein Air are partnering for a new event, The Harvest Gathering.  The Harvest Gathering is a celebration of local art, music, food and beer.  The rain or shine event will be held on Saturday October 19th, 12 – 4 p.m. outdoors at Community Arts Center, 414 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford (or in the Duke Gallery in the event of rain). 

The event features an exhibition of paintings by 25 local artists (Deena Ball, Bruno Baran, Jacalyn Beam, Elizabeth Breakell, Lisa BurgerLentz, Indira Cariappa, Ann Guidera-Matey, Jenny Hall,  Heakyoung Hess, Tamara Hutchinson, Perry Kapsch, Megan Murphy King, Donald Leong, Carol Mangano, Ray Nixon, Al Richards, Marie Davis Samohod, Mary Rinderle Smith, Dale Roberts, J.Stacy Rogers, Angela M. Scully, Radhika Srinivas, Lida Stifel, Susan Stefanski, and Denise Vitollo) that were created at local farms, orchards, and farmer’s markets over the past 5 months. The exhibition will be on view in the Arts Center’s award-winning Duke Gallery from Wednesday, October 16th through Saturday, October 19th. In addition to work by participating artists, the exhibition will also feature Plein Air Panorama, a collaborative plein air piece depicting the CAC’s beautiful gardens. This piece was created by young artists led by Deena Ball during CAC’s summer art camp, Summer Spree.

In addition to art, the event features beer and hard cider tastings by local breweries including Sly Fox, Suburban Brewing, Swarthmore Beer Co., Dressler Estate (cider), Conshohocken Brewing Co., Sterling Pig, 2SP Brewing Company, Iron Hill, East Branch Brewing Company, and Victory Brewing Company, and pizza made with locally sourced ingredients prepared in the CAC’s outdoor pizza oven by Jeffrey Miller Catering.

Live bluegrass, folk-roots and indie-folk music will be provided by local musicians and CAC favorites, The Minor Adjustments, Last Chance and The Manatawny Creek Ramblers, adding to the festive, autumnal experience.

The Harvest Gathering is a family event so there’ll be kids’ art activities for young artists to participate in including printmaking on flour sack dishtowels with vegetables, as well as, fun lawn games.

A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Urban Tree Connection, a grassroots organization whose mission is to build a neighborhood rooted food and land system through community leadership development and land based strategies in West Philadelphia.
