Artwork in a residential setting

Art Bunch Demonstrates Artful Living

In addition to providing a colorful stopping-off point on the North
Branch Art Trail, seven artists known as the Art Bunch will offer
demonstrations and consultation for visitors interested in living
gracefully. From noon on Friday, October 8 through Sunday afternoon,
October 10, Artful Living will be featured at the Paulukonis home and
stained glass studio near Waverly. It is one of twenty-two venues on this
fall?s North Branch Art Trail, a swath of art studios and galleries roughly
following the Susquehanna River and U.S. Highway 6. During the Columbus Day
weekend artists, galleries, and museums along the trail open their doors,
set out refreshments, and organize special events.

Visitors to the Paulukonis site will see art in every room of the
house where it can be enjoyed during everyday living. Guests can also tour
the stained glass studio where Jay Paulukonis will be fabricate a window
over the course of the weekend. He expects to cut glass on Friday, lead the
window on Saturday, and cement it on Sunday.

Other artists in the group will demonstrate their work as well.
Barbara Kapalski, whose paintings have won awards, will show her
watercolor technique. She will offer a session with tips for those who want
to learn more about displaying art in their own homes. Accomplished
portrait artist George Strasburger will do an ala prima portrait
demonstration. Vanessa Norton, actress, director, and writer, will read
from one of her own plays.

The other half of the Paulukonis glass partnership, Mary Ann will
use glass samples and the computer to show how she plans color for a
stained glass window. She will also facilitate a conversation about being
in business with family members. Michael Paulukonis will demonstrate how he
creates unconventional digital portraiture and will discuss web site
construction for artists. The home will also display works by Simone Kiven,
who excels in pastels but also paints with acrylics in an impressionist way.

For a schedule of the events during the Artful Living open house
and studio, call 585-2096 or visit the website.
