Festival of the Trees

The Chairman, Arlene Johns says: “It’s worth a trip Downtown to check out the 12 trees in the AmeriServ Lobby. For me, it has been humbling to see the amount of work put into each of these amazing trees.”

Every tree has a message; they all demonstrate the diversity of the Arts one finds in this area. One example is the Vatavuk sisters’ tree. Cindy’s love of the botanical arts and Gloria’s perfection in her Zentangle ornaments grab your attention and add to the light of the Season.

The Village of Gingerbread

If you’re passing 140 Gazebo Place, do pause to admire the 23 Ginger Bread houses and 60 trees, all in a lovely winter setting. They are the creation of Bethany Carney. Each is hand made and cut by hand. Bethany began developing her skill at a very early age, with milk cartons and M & M’s. For the Holidays 2021, the Gallery is delighted to showcase her artform.

Currently, Bethany is an AmeriCorps member serving as Math Support for children K-6. She claims there is a relationship in the mental gymnastics of math with making gingerbread houses. Science and the Arts are all tied together.
