On Saturday, October 3, from 5-7 pm, Stone Village Art Gallery welcomes local artist, Mitch Geiser, and his new photography exhibit, “A Story To Tell.”

In addition to Mitch’s new exhibit, a delicious array of foods, desserts and wines will be on hand for the opening reception. The exhibit will hang within Stone Village Art Gallery through Sunday, October 25, 2015.
In Mitch’s words: Photography, though wordless, tells a story. With each of my pictures, I try and capture both the beauty and darkness of everyday life. With a heavy focus on lighting and landscape, I hope to express the extremes of the dark and beautiful aspects of our world.
Every photo is framed with wood collected from an Amish community in Ohio.

Lisa Robin Adkinson will be joining us for a trunk show with a variety of her beautiful jewelry as part of our American Craft Week celebration! Get a jump on your holiday shopping and talk to the artist herself about her unique collections and pieces!

Lisa Robin Adkinson’s unique jewelry designs are a reflection of her study of classic symbols and the patterns found in the architecture and design styles of the different cultures she has visited. Each design, be it a necklace, earrings, or cuff bracelet, embodies a particular emotional and spiritual connection, and her goal is to bring those feelings to life in every piece of jewelry she creates.
